Specialised definition of the noun yacht
Glossary of sports
a sailing boat, often one that has living quarters and is used for cruising or racing (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)
originally a term for a fast merchant ship or sail boat which were used to chase smuggler's boats; today the term refers to an elegant, fast, larger boat equipped with a cabin and used for sport competitions and recreational boating (sometimes also a smaller luxury boat). Depending on the means for propulsion one differentiates between motor yachts which are driven by a diesel motor, and sailing yacht, large ocean-going sailboats which can be used for overseas and coastal tours (ocean yachts) as well as for sailing regattas. The sailing yacht has a covered hull, a forward-running bow, a water-unloading stern, and a large sail area. Depending on the type of understructure sailing yachts can be further differentiated into keel yachts (with fixed ballast keel), center-board yachts (with a retractable center-board), and kell-center-board yachts (with ballast kell and retractable center-board). (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)

- Yacht: A yacht is a recreational boat or ship. The term originated from the Dutch Jacht meaning "hunt". It was originally defined as a light fast sailing vessel used by the Dutch navy to pursue pirates and other transgressors around and into the shallow waters of the Low Countries. After its selection by Charles II of England as the vessel to carry him to Britain from Holland for his restoration in 1660, it came to be used to mean a vessel used to convey important persons.

- Yacht a.k.a. Boat: A boat is a watercraft of any size designed to float or plane, to work or travel on water. Small boats are typically found on inland or in protected coastal areas. However, boats such as the whaleboat were designed for operation from a ship in an offshore environment. In naval terms, a boat is a vessel small enough to be carried aboard another vessel. Another less restrictive definition is a vessel that can be lifted out of the water. Some definitions do not make a distinction in size, as 1000-foot bulk freighters on the Great Lakes are called oreboats. For reasons of naval tradition, submarines are usually referred to as 'boats' rather than 'ships', regardless of their size and shape.
