Other than spelling, it's got me stumped.

Perhaps that new resource called 'Google' could help you

Who knows? We called 92,000 ton aircraft carriers "boats", mostly to piss off the black shoe Navy. Submarines have been called boats forever.

To me, the choice of word for sailboats is based mostly on whether you mean to impress snobby cocktail party patrons, avoid paying luxury taxes in certain states, or convince you wife that what you are about to purchase isn't that expensive at all...

One definition that is often used is that you can fit a boat inside a ship but you cannot fit a ship inside a boat, it means boat transport . A ship is a commercial vessel such as a passenger ship, a freighter or a tanker. A boat is smaller - could be a fishing boat, a dinghy, a sailboat, a row boat, etc., and could actually be fairly large. A yacht is a personally owned pleasure "boat", either a sail boat or a power boat, but is not a ship. :)

Boat = $
Ship = $$
Yacht = $$$$$$$$$$
It all matters on how much $ you have!

a Mumm or an Archambault is a yacht, as is the Maltese Falcon by definition

A Tboat or Shaw is a boat

A boat can be carried by a ship.
A yacht is a boat bigger 'n your boat.

Allan,

In the old school a ship is 116 feet including the bow sprit and the master is the captain.
A boat is anything less that 116 feet and the master is called the skipper.
And a yacht is a privitely owned vessel and owner is called Sir.

Denotation is one thing; a ship is a large vessel designed most often to haul cargo or passengers, or make war, across oceans and able to and typically carrying boats on board. Yachts and boats are smaller, and yachts are used exclusively for pleasure.

Connotation is a different matter; the difference in connotation is that yachts generally carry the connotation of being larger, more completely outfitted, more capable, requiring of more maintenance, and more finely finished, and much more luxurious than a mere boat. Large expanses of varnished wood and gleaming brass have been hallmarks of traditional yachts. In practice, it sounds silly, pretentious, and ignorant -- or perhaps just ironic or joking -- to call something small and shabby a yacht. But there are also regional differences; "yachting" in Great Britain is simply sailing, as distinguished from motor boating.

"A yacht is a boat that ladies can wear high heels aboard."

Ladies? High heels? on a yacht? I think not, sir.
1) High heels on teak decks - people have been keel-hauled for less!
2) the only "ladies" who would try to wear high heels on a proper yacht would be likely for charter (ie not ladies)
3) only floating objects that high heels welcome likely to be steel decked (ships) or plastic (gin palace/stink pot)

now back to my pipe....
