Yemen's official news agency says two missiles fired by Houthi rebels struck a mosque in an army camp, killing 22 troops and wounding several others.
Photos that were too graphic to publish showed the bodies of women and men in civilian clothes lying on top of one another in the partially destroyed boat, their belongings splattered with blood.
Al-Hassan Ghaleb Mohammed told the Associated Press news agency the refugees were trying to reach Sudan after leaving Ras Arra.
The spokesperson for the coalition, General Ahmed al-Asseri, said they did not conduct any operations or have any engagement in the Hodeidah area on Thursday. There was no immediate comment from the coalition.
Hodeida province has been under heavy airstrikes for the past two years, since the Saudi-led coalition joined the country's civil war to stop Houthi advances in Yemen in March 2015.

The Saudi-led and USA -backed coalition began striking the rebels and their allies in March 2015, hoping to drive the Houthis from the capital, Sanaa, and restore the internationally recognized government. He said the helicopter then stopped firing, but only after more than 30 Somalis had been killed.
Some survivors said they believed they.
Yemen officials confirmed there had been an incident, with an official saying the bodies of 33 refugees had been taken to hospital in the port city of Hodeida.
However, October figures from the UN Office of the High Commission for Human Rights (OHCHR) state that the conflict has claimed the lives of at least 4,125 civilians and left at least 7,207 wounded, with the majority of casualties caused by coalition airstrikes.
Numerous wounded lost arms and legs in the strike, the Yemeni medical official told AP on condition of anonymity.
Despite the crisis, Yemen continues to be an important transit point for African migrants. The rebels remain in control of Sanaa and much of northern Yemen, and the conflict, which has killed an estimated 10,000 civilians, is in a stalemate.
