Yup, whether slave labor or paid, if you can figure a way to get others to perform even the mundane tasks you're a yachtie!

A further defining point in this situation is if you have to join in, doing some manner of chore aboard: OR are you able to sit back nearby in a lounge chair under an awning and enjoy the beautiful day with its refreshing breeze while sipping on your favorite libation.

A boat is something you work on. A yacht is something you pay someone to work on.
