These include motor boats, boats, sailing and rowing boats, jet skis, etc. Supervision over small boats is carried out by the State Small Vessels Inspectorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation.

Boat
Boats are called small, 5-10 meters long. Sometimes it is difficult to understand which watercraft passed in front of him. The difference lies in the motor: on the boat, the main motor is stationary, and the motor units are outboard motors. For protection from bad weather, passengers can be equipped with a soft or hard awning. Some models are equipped with cabins.

WALKING – DESIGNED FOR SHORT (NOT MORE THAN 2 DAYS) TRAVELS ON WATER.
TOURIST BOATS. ON THEM IT IS POSSIBLE TO TAKE LONG WALKS FOR LONG DISTANCES.
FISHING BOATS. THIS IS AS A RULE OF SMALL SPEED VESSELS WITH A SILENT DRAFT.
SPORTS BOATS.
HYDROCYCLE
A jet ski is a swimming device intended for sports competitions or for active recreation on the water. It has, as a rule, a fiberglass body and is equipped with a stationary internal combustion engine with water cooling.

BOAT OR HYDROCYCLE?
Similarly, you can ask: a car or a motorcycle? In this case, a car is a boat and a motorcycle is a jet ski. It is important to define the grade of the assessment.

CRITERIAS OF CHOICE
SPEED.
COMFORT.
MANEUVERABILITY.
RELIABILITY.
SIMPLICITY IN MAINTENANCE AND TRANSPORTATION.
SPEED
In terms of speed characteristics, a jet ski looks preferable. Auxiliary outboard motors can be used to increase this figure on boats. This increases the cost of the craft and reduces fuel efficiency, as well as complicates transportation to the reservoir.

COMFORT
Here the boat has an advantage, especially if it is a cabin boat. For those who traditionally prefer a jet ski, but appreciate comfort, a seated three-seater model is suitable.

MANEUVERABILITY
A jet ski is a more maneuverable watercraft. Standing models are leaders in this parameter.

RELIABILITY
Modern models of boats and jet skis meet international standards in terms of reliability. This is especially true for BRP jet skis.

SIMPLICITY IN MAINTENANCE AND TRANSPORTATION
The maintenance of the boat is associated with its necessary storage during the non-navigation season. This requires a special garage on the pier. The cost of such a garage is comparable to the cost of a boat. For ground transportation of the boat, you will need a special trailer and a transport awning. Storing your jet ski is less troublesome and costly. It can be stored during the winter in a car garage or in a guarded car park. Such a unit can be transported to the reservoir both with the help of a special trailer designed for this, and on an ordinary trailer for passenger cars.
