Re: Is this a Yacht?

Of course it's not a yacht. It's a floating Cat House.

Re: Is this a Yacht?

It's a yacht if used for pleasure.

Otherwise it is probably someone's tax deduction.

Re: Is this a Yacht?

It's probably only shards and splinters by now if the "yachtie" is downstairs on CF and hasn't noticed what off his port bow.

Re: Is this a Yacht?

No problem being on CF. With one of these even lighthouses change course to avoid.

Re: Is this a Yacht?

I was always under the impression that supermegayachts, ( larger than commercial passenger cruiseliners), aside. If I bought it from a yacht broker, and keep it at a yacht club, and it is bigger than the yachts formerly owned by celebrities of a few years ago before the mega rich. Then it is in fact a yacht.

yacht [ yot ]noun (plural yachts)Definition: 1. sailboat: a sailboat, often one that has living quarters and is used for cruising or racing
2. motorboat for cruising: a large motorboat used for cruising

Yacht lengths generally range from 8 metres (26 ft) up to dozens of metres (hundreds of feet). A luxury craft smaller than 12 metres (39 ft) is more commonly called a cabin cruiser or simply "cruisers."
