  • Passengers: 1 captain + 13 crew.
  • Maximum speed: 30.88km/h (solo, with a gale in the back).
  • Hold Capacity: 62 large crates. see #Loadable Items for more info.
  • Creature Cage Capacity: 8

  • You do not have to have 35 strength to avoid beaching the boat - so long as it is not moored, you can still push and pull the boat off of a reef.
  • Ships with a quality of less than 10 cannot be commanded.
    • This includes ships whose damage percentage would calculate to bring the quality below 10 (eg. a 12 quality ship with 17 damage calculates to a ship below 10 quality).
    • Repairing a ship can sometimes result in the ship retaining a quality above 10, thus being commandable once again.
  • The most difficult ships to build. Higher quality parts improves chance of success.
  • Ships cannot be hauled up ladders
  • Can be loaded with a wagon or a large cart, and enough animals to drive them.
