A yacht is a yacht when it is solely used for recreational enjoyment by its owner. A boat becomes a yacht at about 30' in length. I was wondering about the answer to this question too, so I did some research. The best description, since there is no exact answer, came from the on-line Encylopedia Brittanica, so I copied an excerpt for all to see here: "Yacht lengths generally start at 32-35 feet (10-11 m) and go up to hundreds of feet. A mega yacht generally refers to any yacht (sail or power) above 100 ft (34 m) and a super yacht generally refers to any yacht over 200 ft (70 m). This size is small in relation to typical cruise liners and oil tankers. " But the perfect Yacht is one that is most suitable to a particular owner. For example my friend has a Symbol Yacht that is 69' and he is the process of selling his yacht. I cannot imagine a more beautiful motor yacht then his motor yacht Imagine; no pun intended. It is unfortunate that it is being sold, but what is one person's loss will be another's gain. It is really a special yacht with impeccable attention to detail, ride, and safety.Imagine is the perfect example of a yacht. Happy cruising!
