Recreational Boat
A pleasure boat on the Kennet and Avon Canal near the Dundas Aqueduct, Wiltshire, England.

A pleasure craft (or pleasure boat) is a boat used for personal, family, and sometimes sports recreation. Such watercraft are divided into two main categories: motorboats and sailboats. There are also rowboats and canoes. They are used for holidays, for example on a river, lake, canal, waterway, in an archipelago or coastal area. Pleasure craft are normally kept at a marina. They may include accommodation for use while moored to the bank.

In Great Britain, many narrowboats were converted into pleasure craft from their previous use for cargo transport on canals, and today the same hull style is commonly used for new pleasure craft using the canal system.
