The only known species in its genus, the Velella velella, also known as the “by-the-wind sailor” or the “jack-sail-by-the-wind”, falls somewhere between Portuguese man-of-war and coral.

This is the velella (Velella Velella), a small free floating hydrozoan. It’s currently the only known species in the genus. They’re also known as sea-rafts or by-the-wind-sailors, for the obvious reason that it uses the “sail” for locomotion.
