Facts about Boats

  • Boats have been used for travel for thousands of years.
  • Boats that are very large and can travel long distances are referred to as ships.
  • The main body of a boat is called the hull.
  • There are three main categories of boats. Boats are grouped into these categories based on how they’re powered. Boats can be powered by humans, sails, or motors. Boats powered by humans include canoes, rowboats, and kayaks. Boats powered by sails are usually called sailboats and can be very small or very large in size. Boats powered by motors are often called motorboats. The motor can be inside or outside the boat.
