There are "pocket yachts" as small as 13'. Generally, a "yacht" is a pleasure boat rather than a workboat, and provides a little more comfort than an open boat like an aluminum fishing boat or a dinghy that has no cabin space. At a minimum, a cabin with a bunk or two, porta potties and camp stoves are frequently used on smaller boats for trips longer than a few hours.

Small yachts, also known as Silboats or Cabin Cruisers are 20-40 feet. There are of course larger Yachts that can get to over 100 feet, also known as Mega Yachts.

Is it a good investment to buy a yacht?


Investment to buy Yacht is a very outdated it is very costly and requires maintenance and security. Value of yacht keeps decreasing. It's a black hole which keeps taking money until you get poor and does not give any return. Yacht investment is very risky. You can't sell it if you want your money back!

You should better invest in healthcare startups which are the future. They will give you faster and sure returns in around 4 to 10 years. Their is much less risk in investing in companies which have patents and clinical studies. Contact Kavas Yachting Charters in Greece with details like how much money you have so that you i can recommend you investment opportunities which are profitable to invest with good returns.

How many people can fit in a 20 feet yacht?


I'm sorry but I totally disagree with the other answers... a waft yacht is pretty small & would never advise more than 4 people for any period of time, on the other hand if you are just going on a jolly for a few hours then possibly 6 people, 20ft yacht is a small vessel and you will not be able to move around on the thing with more than 6!

HOW TO SET NEW PIRELLI YACHT TIMER WATCH? MANUAL NOT SENT WITH WATCH. IS THERE A FREE MANUL POSTED ON INTERNET? MODEL 41008, S# 7951903215 Many thanks for the help.


This information comes from the movement manufacture and helps figure out what does what. I also have a yacht timer with no instructions.....hope this helps

A combination of design and technology, ISA 8270 is a precise racing timer developed especially for yachting races, displaying count-down during regatta departures with audible signals, followed by cumulated time during races. The dimensions (25.60mm, H 4.60mm) offer a large variety of opportunities for watch designs. It is suitable for the manufacture of models for gents and ladies watches.

This new calibre is an analogue quartz timer fitted with an alarm function. It displays the hours, minutes, seconds (small jumping seconds at 2 o’clock counter), and date shown by a date window at 6 o’clock. In addition, it allows count-down and race timing. The small hand at 10 o’clock counter and the central hand facilitate the display of count-down and time measurement clearly visible.

Count-down, Racing Timer and Alarm features

ISA 8270 yachting movement not only provides the traditional count-down at 10, 6 and 5 minutes, but also the versatility of setting count-downs at any minute from 10 to 1 minute.

One special feature is that it allows the possibility of recalibrating the count-down at every minute up to the last minute before departure. This latter function allows the navigators to readjust the watch at any time during the count-down to the closest full minute in order to be in line with the official procedure announced by the racing committee (RC) boat so as to get off the best possible start. Audible signals are emitted every minute to alert the progress of count-down. To give higher accuracy, every-second audible signals are emitted during the last 10 seconds count-down to ensure knife-sharp precision. Immediately after the departure, the count-down automatically shifts to the racing timer mode to measure the time of the race event for a maximum of 96 hours. Setting, start/stop and recalibration of count-down and race timing are facilitated by the pushers (at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock), which are easier to operate.

Thanks to an oversized counter hand and a highly visible flange on the dial that our customers may design, the navigators can best monitor the time remaining before departure and during the entire procedure.

The alarm time is displayed in an analogue mode. Alarm start/stop is enabled by a pusher at 8 o’clock and is displayed by a central alarm hand (12 hours).

Superb performance

Born of precision, accuracy and innovation, ISA 8270 offers excellent quality and performance. Intended for yachting races, this movement gives answer to sports watches requiring indispensable qualities: strength, endurance, agility and outstanding speed.
When the trend of sportive and fashionable quartz watches prevails, this new Swiss Made ISA 8270 priced competitively with outstanding performance answers the expectations of an increasing market demand and customers, who wish to add a number of value-added exceptional designs to their next collections with strong sporting character.
