A Yacht is any propelled boat that exceeds 32 feet in length, and weighs less than 300 gross tons.

    There is no set length or tonnage, pocket yachts can be as small as 13' and there a great many yachts over 300 tons.

There is no "gotta be this long to be a yacht" rule. And in boats, tonnage is the carrying capacity, not the weihht of the boat. Generally, boats under 15 feet are considered "dinghys" and anything larger can be considered a "yacht" if it is a pleasure boat rather than a workboat.

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Investment to buy Yacht is a very outdated it is very costly and requires maintenance and security.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.

Do I need a special license to sail a Yacht?


You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.

Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.

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 do iI chose a fishing boat?


There are three styles of regular fishing boats; deep v, regular v or modified v. The v determines how well the boat cuts through the depth of the water. The deep v is better suited for large lakes because they can handle heavy waves better. Regular "v" is more appropriate for smaller lakes and a man made body of water. As the water is not as deep and the waves are not as heavy, this type of boat is able to handle the situation. The modified v is the most popular version. It is capable of handling speed best. Most fishing boats on the market today are made of fiberglass or aluminum. What is best for your fishing situation? Do you want to fish in large lakes or small lakes? The options are endless. There are several classes of fishing boats for different situations. All purpose fishing boats are great for your basic fishing needs. This type of boat has space for some bench seats, fishing gear and a simple steering station. They are made of either fiberglass or aluminum and are between 15 and 20 feet long. Another type of fishing boat is a bass boat, which comes fully equipped with space for rods and fishing gear. The boat is fully built with electronics and livewells. This boat also is made out of fiberglass and aluminum. The advantage to this type of boat is it is made especially to catch bass, fast. The third type of fishing boat is the center-console. It allows a fisherman to angle from any place on the deck. The control center is located in the center. Depending on the size of the boat they can be used offshore as well as near. Flats boats are mostly made up of fiberglass. The advantage of these boats is they allow easier angling access to saltwater flat fish. Another advantage it has is a poling platform that allows for fish spotting. Finally, a casting deck allows the angler to keep control. This makes this ype of boat convenient for fishing. The final category of fishing boats is the fun boat because it combines the motor of a yacht and the functionality of large a cockpit to work trophy fish and bring them on board. If ou are a fishing fanatic then it is important to have all the things that you need to make your fishing trip a success. Fishing boats are definitely the finishing touch to a nice fishing trip.
