What is a sailboat the stand on vessel in relations to a recreational power boat?

   The question should be "When is the sailboat the stand-on vessel...? The answer is if the sailboat has an engine and if it is in operation, the sailboat is treated as a power boat in determining stand-on status. The right-of-way would then follow the rules for power boats.

   Generally speaking a sailboat under sail is the stand on-vessel (privileged) over a power vessel. There are important exceptions. A sailboat cannot impede a vessel that is limited in it's ability to maneuver (examples; a tug boat with a tow, a fishing vessel with nets, etc) A sailboat cannot impede a vessel constrained by it's draft ( that is it cannot move outside the channel because it will run aground) A sailboat under power is consider a power vessel and must obey the same rules as all power vessels. A sailing vessel may not impede a vessel that can only maneuver in a narrow channel or fairway. Please refer the link provided below.

When does a sailboat have the right away over a recreation vesel?

   
   User Avatar 
   == There are too many variables to give a short answer, but generally speaking... a sailboat has the right of way over a powered recreational vessel when the sailboat is operating under the sail's power only. In other words, even if the sail is up, if the sailboat's engine is running and the propeller is engaged, it is considered a powered vessel.

   A sailboat under sale usually has the right of way over a power driven vessel. The exception is when the powered fishing boat or large commercial vessel is in a restricted channel area. In this instance, the sailboat would need to yield.

You are operating a motorboat What if your motorboat is being overtaken by a sailboat What should you do?

   
   User Avatar 
   If you are operating a motorboat and your motorboat is being overtaken by a sailboat, you should maintain present course and speed. The vessel that is overtaking another vessel is the give-way vessel, regardless of whether it is a sailing vessel or a power-driven vessel. The vessel being overtaken is always the stand-on vessel.

Are a yacht and a sailboat the same?

   
   User Avatar 
   No, a yacht and a sailboat are not necessarily the same. The sailboat is, as its name implies, a watercraft that moves under wind power. The yacht, on the other hand, could be a sailboat, but it does not have to be. The yacht is a larger vessel (usually over 30 feet in length) used for recreation, and the yacht can be (and usually is) classified as either a sailing vessel or a motor craft.

   The sailboat operator is the stand-on vessel so they should keep their course and speed while the PWC is the give-away vessel so it should change course and speed.

   Sailboat. A PWC, or personal watercraft, is the give way vessel to any sailboat. In the US, a PWC refers to any small powerboat less than 13 feet in length. As such, it is a powerboat and must give way to all sailboats.
