Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: this word comes from the Dutch word jacht, which means hunt. It’s sail- or power-driven vessel, used for racing or for recreation. As you can see, the English spelling is similar to the Dutch one – only -j changes to -y. That’s why the only correct form is yacht, not yatch.

Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: this word is a misspelling. There is no reason to write it like that. When we look at its etymology, we can clearly see that -ch should appear before -t, not the other way around. The pronunciation indicates that as well. Therefore, the only correct form is yacht, not yatch.
