The yacht is a high end recreational boat. The term yacht originates from the Dutch word "Jacht" meaning "hunt" and referred to the Dutch Republic's Navy vessels which they used to hunt pirates. Later, the word yacht was popularised by Charles II of England when it started to be used as a recreational boat.

The classification of a yacht depends less on its length, but rather the use of the boat, or recreational purposes. Several recreational boats can be considered a yacht, whether they are sailing or motor boats, and not just luxury ones. The sailing yacht is propelled by the wind. There are different types of sailing yachts but all have common characteristics: having a helm, a platform and at least one mast.

The length of a yacht is usually at least 10 metres: if they are smaller than this they are considered to be cruisers. The maximum length of a yacht can reach many tens of metres, such as the super yacht with an Azzam motor, which measures 180 metres, or Sailing Yacht A, the largest sailing boat in the world with a length of 142 metres.
