BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A barge can be defined as a rectangular watercraft that is usually built with a flat bottom. Although generally towed, it can also operate under its own power.

Meaning


Barges are typically designated for hauling freight or the transport of goods, but they may be used for a number of other purposes. These include anything from house barges to dredging platforms. Built mainly for inland waterways, they can also be used in offshore or oceanic applications.

Context


Barges can be nominally titled, documented, and registered. Whether actually required, however, may depend on its usage and whether or not self-propelled.

Conclusion


Barge regulations can vary widely, therefore it is best to check with a jurisdictional agency in the area where it will be operated.
