A small boat is a vessel that floats on the water according to Archimedes' principle. There is a difference between motor and sailboats. A boat has a hull and is propelled by motors (motor boat / yacht), wind (sailing boat / yacht) or by muscle strength. A boat's hull can be made from wood, steel, plastic, fibreglass or even concrete and is sometimes made from a combination of these materials.
A boat can be differentiated by its construction (wooden boats, dinghies) its power (motor - motor boat / yacht) paddle (paddle boat), rowing (rowing boat) or wind (sailing boat / yacht), the use (fishing boat, house boat, life boat, sport boat, regatta yacht, swamp boat, its hydrodynamic characteristics (slider, half slider, displacement hull) or according to the number of hulls (one hull - monohull, classic boat/yacht, several hulls - multihull).
In English there are three delimitations between a boat and a ship: boat, yacht or ship. The terms are differentiated by the length of the vessel. Smaller vessels up to a length of around seven or eight metres are known as boats (sailing boats, motor boats, bathing boat, dinghy boat, banana boat, jolly boat). Larger vessels from around eight metres long are known as yachts or ships. A ship/yacht is a large and inhabitable boat, that has at least one sleeping cabin.
