Motorboats are characterized by a motorized propulsion system. There are two types of engines:
- Inboard engines, located in the hull
- the 'outboard' motors, installed at the rear, clearly visible to the naked eye
Motorboats can be rigid or flexible (semi-rigid) hulls, as with boat tenders. You can also find multihull models such as catamarans and motor trimarans. Jet-skis, although belonging to the motorboat family, are more akin to power boating. Note that to be at the helm of a Motorboat whose power exceeds 6 horsepower, you must hold a boating license.
