The name Yacht originates from the Dutch word jacht or jachten meaning hunt, referring to a fast light sailing vessel that the Dutch used to pursue pirates off their coastal areas.
James 1st was the first English Monarch to commission the construction of a yacht, it was for his son Henry Prince of Wales in the early 1600’s. During this time Charles II was exiled to France, whilst there he visited the Netherlands on many occasions to take part in Yacht racing, mainly for the elite and royalty.
The name catamaran is a Tamil word – Kattumaram, meaning several logs tied together forming a raft. Planks abridging the logs were then added, these craft were ideal for coastal fishing trips, originally paddled by men. They went on to travel the Indian and Pacific oceans. Sails were introduced some 20,000 years ago which enabled them to travel further afield with boats of 70 ft or more and makeshift shelters, subsequently achieving voyages of over 2,000 miles.
