No, an 'ARK' is an oblong box or chest, like the
'Ark of the Covenant' (Exodus 25:10, 11, 17-22) or the
'Ark' that Moses was hidden in before Pharaoh's daughter found him(Exodus 2:2-4)
Noah's Ark was similar, but of course, much larger; basically a three story chest with a cover(Genesis 6:14-16). It was not a boat or a ship, since there was no need for a deck or a bow to steer the Ark with. All it needed to do was float and carry a large load. A covered oblong box was the most stable design for this purpose.
