A ship has enough space and has a huge size in order to carry its own boats, such as lifeboats, dinghies or runabouts. Submarines are usually referred as "boats", because in the early age the submarines were usually of small size and easy enough to be carried on a ship in order to move from one place to another.

There are other kinds of vessels too, which are traditionally known as boats,of which are the Great Lakes freighter, the riverboat, and the ferryboat. They are large enough to carry about their own boats and heavy cargoes. They are designed for operations usually on island or protected coastal waters. During the age of sail, the ship showed a ship-rigged vessel, that was one with three or more spar, which most of the time were three, all square-rigged. Such a vessel usually has one fore and aft sail on her aftermost spar which was usually the mizzen.
