корабель - beautiful Ukrainian word. Sounds like it should be in a poem.

Boat is usually translated as "човен", but there could be some overlap I would assume

Arrr, ye land-lubbers not be understandin' tha difference b'tween a boat and a ship! OK, seriously. I would assume that the difference between a корабель and a човен would be the same as the difference between a ship and a boat in English. Right? A ship is a boat, but a boat is not a ship. A ship is like a big boat.

maybe it has some common background with the word carabela/corvette/Korvette?

Or even with caravel. Well, it makes it easier to remember. :)

A boat is not necessarily a ship, but can be.
