BoatWiki - Definitions
A pleasure boat can be defined as any watercraft that is being used for recreational purposes as adverse to commercial operations. Pleasure boats are also commonly referred to as recreational vessels.
Pleasure boats come in all sizes and types, from ski boats to mega yachts. There are also boats that may be used alternatively for pleasure or commercial purposes.
There is a considerable distinction when a pleasure boat is operated for commercial purposes. This can have a major impact on safety, insurance, registration, lender, and many other operational requirements.
Commercial usage of a pleasure boat should be taken seriously as there can be costly ramifications when it comes to violations. Although BoatWiki offers much information in this regard, professional consultations may be the best answer for those who are unsure of such issues.
