A yacht is a recreational boat. It designates two rather different classes of watercraft, sailing and power yachts.
Yacht lengths generally start at 36-40 feet (11-12 m) and go up to hundreds of feet. A mega yacht generally refers to any yacht (sail or power) above 100' or 34 m and a super yacht generally refers to any yacht over 200' or 70 m.
Since after 1950s the use of wood in yacht production has changed and now includes modern products such as plywood, veneers and epoxy resins. Wood is still mostly used by hobbyists or wooden boat purists when building an individual boat. Although wood hulls are still in production, the most common construction material for hulls is mostly fibreglass, aluminum, steel, carbon fibre, and ferrocement.
