What length does a boat have to be to be considered a yacht?

What defines a boat to be a yacht?
Asked Aug 19, 2010
Boat less that 34 feet
Yacht 34 - 100 Ft
Mega Yacht 100-200 Ft
Super yacht 200-300 Ft
Over 300 Ft it's a ship

The numbers are only based on tradition. There are no hard and fast rules. If you want to call your 12' bass boat a yacht, it's your call. :-)
