Sailing boat is a boat propelled partly or entirely by sails. A sailboat's engine is much smaller and is used far less compared to a powerboat. Sailboats symbolize journey and adventure.
They also are associated with being carried along by the “breath of life,” as its primary form of momentum is gained through the wind in its sails. The biggest advantage is their performance and manoeuvrability.
From race boats to small cruisers they have a wide range of options in models and equipment. The average speed of cruising sailboats is 4-6 knots (4.5-7 mph) and can attain easily a cruise speed of over 8 knots when powered by wind. The racing boat’s average speed however is much higher, and can reach easily 15 knots (17 mph)
