'Yacht' or 'sailing boat'


Recommended Posts

I was doing a Face Time thingy with small grandson; he was toting the current treasure, which was a flashcard picture of a saily. 'Boat' says I all helpfully, 

'Yacht' corrected my daughter, and there on the reverse, was the word in question. 

I started to wonder...I never refer to Briiliant as a yacht, I call her a 'boat', 'sailing boat', or 'sailing cruiser'; why is that? Why have I never heard anyone else on the Broads talk about yachts either?
