Saskatoon Yacht Club
Prairie Lily River Boat
Introducing the new river boat- the Prairie Lily- on the South Saskatchewan River in our very own Saskatoon!
Saskatoon's new Riverboat is a great opportunity for families, friends, and even for students to go on a great outing!
What we Can Provide You :
All of these can be used for recreational purposes! In particular, the term 'yacht' is originally Dutch, 'jacht'. The Dutch had light and fast moving vessels that their navy used to pursue pirates! Modern use has two classes of these boats, specifically, sailing and power boats. They serve more of a leisure purpose, which is in contrast with the working ships!
Different Kinds of Yachts
Day Sailing Yachts: usually small, under 4 meters in length; also sometimes referred to as 'dinghies'
Weekender Yachts: slightly larger at under 9.5 meters; they operate in shallow waters and if needed 'dry out'
Cruising Yachts: make up the majority of 7-14 meters; and the most common yacht in private use with a cruising speed upwards of 6 knots
