A yacht is a large boat with sails or a motor, used for racing or pleasure trips. a round-the-world yacht race. To sail, cruise, or race in a yacht. Sail-or motor-driven vessel used for racing or recreation.

    Aussprache

    /ˈyät/ /ˈjɑːt/

    Etymologie

    [ yät ] (noun.) 1557. ca. 1557; variant of yaught, earlier yeaghe ‘light, fast-sailing ship’, from obsolete Dutch jaght(e) 'hunt' (modern jacht), short for jaghtschip, jageschip ‘light sailing vessel, fast pirate ship’, literally, ‘pursuit ship’, compound of jagen ‘to hunt, chase’ and schip ‘ship’ (see ship), from Proto-Germanic *jagōnan (cf. West Frisian jeie, German jagen, Swedish jaga), from Proto-Indo-European *i̯egho- (compare Irish éad ‘jealousy’, Russian yaryĭ ‘furious’, Albanian gjah ‘hunt’, Ancient Greek zēteîn ‘to search, seek’, Sanskrit yāvan ‘aggressor’, yātna ‘zeal’). In the 16th century the Dutch built light, fast ships to chase the ships of pirates and smugglers from the coast. The ship was introduced to England in 1660 when the Dutch East India Company presented one to King Charles II, who used it as a pleasure boat, after which it was copied by British shipbuilders as a pleasure craft for wealthy gentlemen.
