A cruising yacht is a sailing or motor yacht that is suitable for long-distance travel and offers enough amenities to live aboard the boat, yet is small enough to not require a professional crew. A yacht that would require a professional crew enters the category of superyacht.

Sail[edit]

Sailing cruising yachts are designed for multi-day voyages with the capacity for overnight passage making. Their range and endurance relies primarily on sail power and the storage of provisions for the crew.[1][2][3][4]

Power[edit]

Power cruising yachts are designed for multi-day voyages with the capacity for overnight passage making. Their range and endurance relies primarily on fuel supply and the storage of provisions for the crew.[5][6]
