I'm fine with adding a category for military semi-submersibles.

But the proposed name seems odd to me, as we would then get:
16 Semi-Submersible Naval Vessel
82 Semi-Submersible Boats

I think they both should be either "Vessel" or "Boats".

According to the Oxford Dictionary:
vessel: 1 A ship or large boat.
boat: 1.1 A vessel of any size, especially a large one.

Which means that a vessel is a large boat and a boat is a large vessel...

I don't know which one is most correct to use. I haven't found an official definition of "boat" or "vessel".
Reading https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boat didn't help much.

Does anyone have an opinion about this?
