What is a yacht? A yacht is a sail or power-driven vessel, usually private (not a "working" vessel), that is used for pleasure and is typically designed for overnight or long-distance use. As such, it usually has sleeping space (berths or staterooms), cooking space (a galley), and "necessary" space (heads). Size alone does not define a yacht!
