Auxiliary Sailboat

Sailboat, Auxiliary


a sailing vessel with an auxiliary engine that is used in windless weather to propel the vessel in port areas and channels, where it is difficult to maneuver under sail. Diesel engines that drive a propeller are usually used to power modern vessels of this type. Most auxiliary sailboats are small vessels used for fishing, transport, seamanship training, and carrying tourists.
