yacht was originally defined as a light, fast
sailing vessel used to convey important persons. In
later parlance, the definition came to mean any vessel,
other than a dinghy,
propelled by sail,
power or both and used for pleasure cruising and/or yacht
A sailing yacht can vary in overall length (LOA
in yachting parlance) from about 6 m (20 feet) to well
over 30 m (98 ft) or more. However, most privately owned
yachts fall on the range of about 7 m to 14 m (about
23-46 ft); the cost of building and keeping a yacht
rises quickly as length increases.

'Cruisers' are by the far the most common in private
usage, making up most of the 7 m to 14 m (23 to 46 ft)
range. These vessels can be quite complex in design, as
designers try to find a balance between docile handling
qualities, interior space, good light-wing performance
and on-board comfort. The huge range of such craft, from
dozens of builders worldwide make it hard to determine a
specific description. However, most favour a teardrop-planform
hull, with a wide, flat bottom and deep single-fin keel
to give good stability. Most are single-mast 'Bermudan
sloop' rigged vessels, with a single fore-sail (of the
'jib' or 'Genoa') type and a single Mainsail. Spinnaker
sails, with huge areas, are often supplied for lightwind
use. These types are often chosen as family vessels,
especially those in the 8 to 12 metre (32 to 40 ft)
range. Such a vessel will usually have many rooms below
deck. Typically there will be 3 double-berth cabins, a
single large saloon (galley, seating and navigation
area) and a 'head' (toilet/showeroom).
In recent years, small/medium-sized private yachts
have evolved from fairly simple vessels with basic
accommodation to sophisticated and luxurious boats. This
is largely due to reduced hull-building costs brought
about by the introduction of fibre-glass hulls, and
increased automation and 'production line' techniques to
yacht building, especially in Europe. In recent years
the amount of electric equipment used on yachts has
increased greatly. Even 20 years ago, it was not common
for a 7 m (25 ft) yacht to have electric lighting. Now
all but the smallest, most basic yachts have electric
lighting, radio and navigation aids such as GPS. Yachts
around 10 m (33 ft) bring in comforts such as hot water,
pressurised water systems, refrigerators etc.
