Yacht rock is cheesy pop rock music from the 80s and 90s. Artists like Michael McDonald, Kenny G, Stevie Nicks, Toto and a host of other similar bands comprise artists who performed this music. Think of dudes in their 50s cruising the harbor and snorting cocaine on their yachts blasting Kenny G and you will be able to picture those who enjoy yacht rock
