# How long does it take to go 500 miles in a boat?

## How long does it take to go 500 miles in a boat?

If you can cruise at 20 mph, it will take you five hours to go every one hundred miles. So 500 miles would take 25 hours. Big boats will go as fast as you want, but speed cost money, big time.

## What is a fast speed for a ship?

One knot is the same as 1.15 statute miles. So, if a cruise ship is sailing at a speed of 21 knots, you might compare that to roughly 24 mph. A cruise ship can typically reach a speed of around 30 knots, about two to three knots higher than its cruising speed, but it’s not likely to go that fast.

**How far can a ship travel in an hour?**

Therefore, the average cruise ship speed is equal to approximately 24 to 27 miles per hour.

**Is a submarine faster than a ship?**

A submarine can be faster than a boat. Or a boat can be faster than a submarine. The speed of a boat is limited by the waves it creates: the faster it goes, the more power is needed to generate bigger waves; but a submerged submarine does not create surface waves, so this limitation does not affect it.

### Is a ship faster than a car?

Key takeaways. Cars are faster than boats because the car has to push the air out of its way (less friction). Whereas for a boat, it has to push the water out of its way, which is denser than air (more friction). And boats are pushing twice its weight in the water, so the boats move slowly than cars.

### How long does it take a train to travel 500 miles?

If it is measured in some unit per second, the result will be in seconds. Example: If a train can travel 500 miles with an average speed of 50 miles per hour, how long it would take it to complete a 500-mile route? The answer is 500 / 50 = 10 hours.

**How long does it take for a yacht to travel at 10 knots?**

This is at cruising speed, of course. hey canâ€™t be traveling at maximum speed for long periods of time (which would burn through the fuel faster). At 10 knots, the trip (about 3,000 miles) would take 300 hours or 12.5 days.

#### How many nautical miles can a sailboat travel?

However, on average, a 75-foot motorized yacht with a tank that can carry 11,000 liters of fuel can travel up to 1500 nautical miles. If you are comparing your yacht to this average, make sure also to compare your tank size. A 95-foot yacht with a 9000-liter fuel tank can travel up to 1,200 nautical miles.

#### What’s the average speed of a cruise ship?

For larger ships however, it’s around 21 to 24 knots, which is still rapid travel while on the water. One knot is one nautical mile per hour, or 6,076 feet per hour. Compare that to one mile per hour on land, which is 5280 feet per hour.
