Yacht Terms

nautical terms


Yachts have also been used as pleasure boats for centuries. In the late 19th century, sailing yacht manufacturers responded to the popularity of yachts by producing something called the “fin-style” yacht—a streamlined, more streamlined boat that used less material and was made with more elegant shapes to appeal to the society it provided relaxation and pleasure for. Over the ensuing decades, the designs of both designs were refined, and by the present day, there are more than 80 different types of fishing and pleasure yachts in the world all powered by Diesel Generators. YACO was founded in Europe in 1947, and for some time it concentrated exclusively on the manufacture of modern fishing boats, designed to accomodate land-based (not sea-based) fishing activities. Though the company now makes boats for dynamic sea-based sport fishing, at its founding YACO’s founders recognized the importance of marine vessels for the enjoyment of commercial fishing operations.
