punnet

Here is my best explanation:

'basket' is the definition.
(punnet is a kind of basket)

'boat loaded with most of new' is the wordplay.
'boat' becomes 'punt' (I've seen this before).
'loaded with' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'most of' means to remove the last letter.
'new' with its last letter taken off is 'ne'.
'punt' placed around 'ne' is 'PUNNET'.
