Sail Boats

Home > Boat Types


Any boat which has a sail and is powered by the wind can be classified as a sail boat. Consequently, a diverse group of boats are called sail boats. This includes small personal vessels all the way up to large yachts. Sail boats can also perform a variety of uses such as recreational and commercial all depending on what the boat was designed to do.

In the past sail boats were used primarily for commercial purposes because boats with motors were not available. Today sail boats are rarely used for commercial purposes and are almost exclusively used for recreation.
