Description: The term 'yacht' is of Dutch origin, and the Dutch it was who introduced the sport into Britain at the time of the restoration of King Charles II to the throne. Charles can be considered the father of yachting; a sailor at heart, he had a tremendous interest in his navy, while his predilection for pleasure and frivolity directed him towards pleasure boats, and a yacht — or, to use the Dutch term 'jaght' — is by definition one built for pleasure.
