1. (Nautical Terms) a vessel propelled by sail or power, used esp for pleasure cruising, racing, etc

 

a : a sailboat used for racing
b : a large usually motor-driven craft used for pleasure cruising
 
As a person that works at sea, I know that there are motor yachts.
Try typing into Google Motor yachts.
You're wrong. Yacht is a pleasure craft that can be powered by sail, or, motor.

And exactly what word are you quoting the meaning off ?   Nothing in your quote, (cut and pasted by the looks of it due to the changes in font ) , definitively describes it

Yes, cut and pasted from the two dictionaries. The search word I used was just YACHT.

The Oxford English dictionary and Websters dictionary mention both sail and motor yachts.

I think these dictionaries have more credibility than the one you used.

dont yachts have sails and are propelled by wind?

 

You are unable to support by factual direct quotes rather,  you use incorrect quotations.   Which means that Wendyfromooz statement, rather question,  was 100 % correct rather than your false quoting to suggest otherwise.  However enough of this stupidity. Yachts have sails and motor boats have motors and motor yachts have both sails and motors. End off.

 

American bastardisation of the term yacht still does not make it correct English.

You are soooooo wrong (and stubborn). Those cut and pastes are direct from dictionaries. How much more direct do you want?

Just type in to Google Motor Yachts for sale. Loads. You can't sell a non-existent item, now, can you?

Many of these vessels have M/Y in front of their names (just like SS used to mean Steam Ship). I'll let you guess what M/Y means, or, if you need a link.....

Clearly you can not even remember your earlier post quoting dictionaries, now you suggest looking at Google ads , you for real or suffering from a debilitating memory loss.   I hope neither really and that you are just trolling , so appreciate your nonsense posts and would suggest that has given many of us a good laugh but please please don't not go any further by suggesting adverts provide proof of a dictionary meaning of a yacht., as that would suggest you are bickering also.

Excellent example......but, I bet he's sticking to his guns judging by the "sad" emoticon he just added to my post.

Some people, eh?
