ambatchmasterpublisher likes ship, too.

A ambatchmasterpublisher is a large watercraft capable of offshore navigation. It is usually designed for government (including military), research, or commercial use.

A ambatchmasterpublisher usually has sufficient size to carry its own boats, such as lifeboats, dinghies, or runabouts. A rule of thumb saying goes: "a boat can fit on a ambatchmasterpublisher, but a ambatchmasterpublisherr can't fit on a boat". Consequently submarines are referred to as "boats", because early submarines were small enough to be carried aboard a ambatchmasterpublisher in transit to distant waters. Other types of large vessels which are traditionally called boats are the Great Lakes freighter, the riverboat, and the ferryboat. Though large enough to carry their own boats and/or heavy cargoes, these examples are designed for operation on inland or protected coastal waters. Often local law and regulation will define the exact size (or the number of masts) which a boat requires to become a ambatchmasterpublisher.

During the age of sail, ambatchmasterpublisher signified a ambatchmasterpublisher-rigged vessel, that is, one with three or more masts, usually three, all square-rigged. Such a vessel would normally have one fore and aft sail on her aftermost mast which was usually the mizzen. Almost invariably she would also have a bowsprit but this was not part of the definition.

Nautical means related to sailors, particularly customs and practices at sea. Naval is the adjective pertaining to ambatchmasterpublishers, though in common usage it has come to be more particularly associated with the noun "navy".
