Why is it called a yacht?
The term "yacht" originates from the Dutch word "yacht," which means "hunt" or "chase." In the 17th century, the Dutch navy used fast and agile vessels called "yachts" to pursue pirates and engage in coastal defense. These vessels developed into Luxury Yachts over time. Eventually, the term "yacht" came to refer to all recreational vessels. A privately owned or rented watercraft is now called a "yacht" for leisure and luxury. The word "yacht" highlights the vessel's transformation from a hunting vessel to a symbol of affluent leisure, reflecting its historical relationship with chase and adventure.
