Meaning


The term runabout can encompass several different styles of boats. These can include closed bows, open bows, cuddy cabins, walkarounds, and center consoles. Runabouts are commonly used for water skiing, short excursions, and ship to shore operations.

Context


Although certain exemptions may apply, runabouts must be registered and meet the same safety requirements as any other type of boat.

Conclusion


Operational requirements for runabouts are in general, similar to other types of small boats.
