About New and Used Small Yachts


What is a Small Yacht?

A small yacht, in general, could be taken as a vessel smaller than 24 meters or 79 feet in length. Smaller yachts, depending on just how small they are exactly, might not require a captain or any crew to operate, so you might find this is the sweet spot in size if you dream of being an owner/operator. If the yacht is on the larger end of the size scale, you might find a captain and crew is necessary for operations. But regardless of operations, just because the yacht is smaller does not mean the accommodations aren’t equally as superb as the larger yachts — there are yacht builders with models under 24 meters that are just as beautiful and spectacular as larger yacht models.

What is a Small Yacht Made of (Construction Material/Hull Design)?

A small yacht can be built from similar materials as larger boats — like wood, steel, aluminum, and composites like fiberglass, GRP, and carbon fiber. The more general “small yacht” term does not illustrate the differences between mode of operation, so a small yacht can as easily be a motor vessel or a sailing yacht. That means that your choice of hull design could vary according to your choice — a sailing yacht could be monohull or multi-hull in design, and a motor yacht’s hull may be a displacement, semi-displacement, or planing hull form.

Why You Should Buy a Small Yacht

You should buy a small yacht if you take pleasure in being out on the water managing the yacht yourself, without the necessity of a captain or crewmember. Or if the vessel is a larger version and requires more than you can handle alone, you could indulge in relaxing on board with a competent crew to handle all the nitty gritty onboard operations. It might be the perfect compromise in size — with all the amenities and opulence of a larger luxury yacht, but with the easy handling sleekness of a smaller boat. While you might lack the multiple decks of a larger yacht, this smaller vessel type can still offer excellent deck space to make outdoor living comfortable and seamless as you spend time on board traveling. A smaller yacht has the advantage of being able to access areas some larger vessels cannot, so it might open your world up for more exploration in areas a little off the beaten path.
