I am looking for a movie about a boy/child that grows up thinking he is in the real world, but actually he is living between walls of a tv-studio. The world saw him grow up and stuff. I think later on he finds out that this is not the real world. I think this happened when he was sailing on his boat and bumped against a wall.

What movie is it?

You're thinking of The Truman Show (1998), starring Jim Carrey. He actually learns that he is the subject of a television program earlier; he uses the sailboat to reach the dome surrounding his "world" at the end of the film.
