Comparison of Starboard & Seaboard


Whether you're aboard a jet ski, a sailboat or an ocean liner, as you face forward, toward the vessel's pointy end, the side of the vessel to your right is the starboard side. As you pull away from a pier, though, you'll watch the seaboard recede into the distance.

Landmass vs. Direction

  • Because the seaboard is land along a coast and not a direction, you can look to starboard to see the seaboard, but you can't look to seaboard to see the starboard. When you turn the ship's wheel to the right, the ship turns to starboard. You can walk to the starboard side of the ship or look to starboard. You might even see the seaboard to starboard, if you're close enough to land.
