Oared means having oars or using oars as a propulsion method in water transportation. Its antonyms are those words that refer to other methods of propulsion such as sailing, motorizing, or using a paddle. For instance, motorized or mechanized boats do not employ oars, making the term non-oared boats fitting. A boat that has a sail instead of oars can be referred to as a non-oared or sailed boat, while kayaks or canoes using a paddle to move are non-oared water transportation systems. Therefore, oared is the opposite of non-oared or any other term relating to other methods of propelling watercraft.
