Watercraft

Personal watercraft or PWC for short also called water scooter, is a watercraft used for fun that the rider, rather than inside in case of a boat, sits or stands on. PWCs have two variants, first and most famed being a sitdown or runabout where the rider is mainly sitting down to use the watercraft, and the craft can hold two or more people. The other style is a “stand-up,” where the rider stands up to use the watercraft.

Most watercraft would be seen as a ship or a boat. However, there are also many crafts that many people would hesitate to call it a boat or a ship, such as surfboards (when used as a paddleboard), underwater robots, seaplanes, and torpedoes. They are openly used in Powersports for the thrill.
