The origin of the word dinghy is beyond dispute. It is well documented that it comes from the Hindi or Bengali word dingi or dengi, which means a native rowing boat used on Indian rivers. Modern English dictionaries define it as 'a small boat propelled by oars, sail or motor.' Older dictionaries as 'a small extra boat in a man-of-war or a small pleasure rowing boat'; also allowing the alternative spellings, dingey or dingy.
Dinghy comes from the Hindu word "dingi". Which is Hindu for "boat". The Hindu word "dingi" is believed to have originated from Bengal.
