A yacht is a small water or spacecraft, typically used for leisure and recreational activities.

In 2376, Songmin Wong purchased a Starstream line yacht -- which he christened Nagus -- with latinum he had invested in the Ferengi stock market. (SCE eBook: Paradise Interrupted)

Entrepreneur Rod Portlyn owned six yachts at the height of his career. In 2376, he hosted several officers aboard one of them, the Astral Maiden, in a tour of his holdings around the Norvel system. (SCE eBook: The Art of the Deal) The following year, while attempting to avoid discovery by Starfleet, Portlyn traded in the Astral Maiden for another yacht, the Stellar Dream, at planet Donrus VII. (CoE eBook: The Art of the Comeback)

Portlyn's yacht was not named in the earlier story, but is assumed to be the same one used in the latter, given Captain Gold's ability to identify it by sight.

Yachts are small leisure spacecraft used by wealthy Human civilians as personal transport and for long-duration cruises. UNSC Prowlers are often disguised as yachts by the Office of Naval Intelligence, as a cover for their activities and to avoid suspicion. Because of their limited capacity to sustain their naval forces, the United Rebel Front will also often retrofit such ships for military use.[1]

Is used by Michael and Walt (fishing boat), is still under Others' control (trawler)

The Others seem to have a number of watercraft at their disposal. As well as a submarine, they have been seen with a trawler-like vehicle and a small fishing boat.

Contents

Fishing boat

The fishing boat first appeared in "Exodus, Part 2", during Walt's kidnapping from the raft. Later, Michael asks the Others for the boat in "Three Minutes", and is given it, along with Walt, at the end of "Live Together, Die Alone" in exchange for bringing Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Hurley to them. He is told to follow a compass bearing of 325 to find rescue.

Trawler

The trawler-like ship was shown in "Stranger in a Strange Land", used to transport the Others, along with Jack, back to the main Island from the smaller Hydra Island. This ship was anchored off-shore and reached by a small rowboat from the beach on Hydra Island.

Trivia

  • Sawyer told Michael it didn't look like the fishing boat had a range of more than 100 miles while both were on the destroyed raft.
  • The trawler ship closely resembles a type of research vessel built around 1965 (see an image of a similar ship here).

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Yacht was the term given to any starship or aquatic vehicle used primarily for recreational purposes. Most yachts were similar in size to light freighters, though a few were as large as small capital ships. They tended to be fairly expensive vessels, with highly luxurious accommodations. As they tended to be relatively fast ships, some yachts were employed by smugglers, though they usually had less cargo capacity than dedicated freighters.

Prominent yachts included Jabba the Hutt's Star Jewel Borvo the Hutt's Prosperous Secret, Lando Calrissian's Lady Luck, King Katuunko's Thief's Eye, Padmé Amidala's J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, J-Type diplomatic barge, H-type Nubian yacht and J-type star skiff, Mara Jade Skywalker's Jade's Fire and Jade Shadow, and G0-T0's Visionary.

The Sorosuub Luxury Yacht is a veteran reward given to players who have been subscribed to SWG for at least 180 continuous days, or in other words, 6 months. The yacht is a mutli-player ship that is great for hosting parties through space, but has no weapons for space combat. The Yacht is also invulnerable to attack. It can hold up to 100 items, and does not take up any lots while in the player's datapad.

Note: As the Sorosuub Luxury Yacht is a Veteran Award, it can not be modified with Crafted or Looted Space components, such as weapons, engines, etc.

The command /getvet will allow you to see how many days are logged for Veteran Rewards and if enough time is accumulated, then to receive that Reward using the /claimVet command.

Star Wars Lore

SoroSuub Personal Luxury Yacht 3000

The SoroSuub Personal Luxury Yacht 3000 is a luxury yacht made famous by the Lady Luck. The Lady Luck is the personal starship of gambler and New Republic hero Lando Calrissian. Lando has owned numerous starships throughout his long career, but the Lady Luck has been the most durable. Calrissian purchased Lady Luck from an Orthellin royal mistress after the Battle of Endor. At the time, Lando's involvement with the mining operation known as Nomad City kept him from tinkering with the starship, but in the years since he has repeatedly modified and upgraded Lady Luck.

Lando initially planned to transform the Lady Luck into an advanced luxury cruiser. However, Calrissian's near-constant involvement with the New Republic has forced him to convert the Lady Luck into a competent combat vehicle. At first glance, the fifty-meter long starship appears to be an unarmed pleasure yacht, but this placid exterior conceals five retractable laser cannons and a small ion cannon turret. A pair of powerful Chempat-6 deflector shield generators provide moderate protection from enemy fire. The Lady Luck's engines are housed in two long engine pods connected to the main hull. Although the starship's sublight and hyperdrive speeds can't match those of the Millennium Falcon, the Lady Luck can still outrace nearly any other luxury vehicle in the galaxy.
Bridge of a luxury yacht

The Lady Luck's secondary systems truly set it apart. It has a highly-sophisticated sensor system allowing Lando to detect, identify, and scan approaching vessels at great range. When the Lady Luck is scanned by customs officials or enemy forces, the ship's transponder can be programmed with up to three separate false identities that include aliases, fake cargo manifests, and modified system specs. Lando frequently changes these identities, although he has used the alias "Stardream" on more than one occasion. A droid brain aboard the starship can pilot the starship in emergencies and direct it towards a summoning unit that Lando always keeps on his belt; this feature proved especially helpful when Lando, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo were forced to flee the mining city of Ilic. The starship also has concealed smuggler compartments.

Although the Lady Luck is now well-suited to combat, it is still a lavish luxury starship. An entire observation level includes an exterior deck and numerous viewports. Lando's private suite and the five visitor cabins are decorated with rare art from around the galaxy. Conform-couches can be found throughout the starship, and the main deck contains a jet-stream meditation pool, and a small crystal garden. Even the Lady Luck's escape pods are furnished with state-of-the-art grav-couches covered in the finest Corellian leather.

Please note that this Veteran Reward is not listed in the "Veteran Rewards" tab on the Star Wars Galaxies main page, though it is still available.
