Vessel details

  • Requires 23 mind logic to be able to command
  • Passengers: 1 captain + 12 crew
  • Maximum speed: 27 km/h (solo, with a gale in the back)
  • Hold Capacity: 43 large crates. see #Loadable Items and #Useful Quantities for more info.
  • Creature Cage Capacity: 4
  • Minimum passable depth: 5 dirt
  • 29 body strength minimum to drag.
  • Size: 4 tiles by 1 tiles
  • Height: 8 dirt from water level to deck(?)


  • 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.
  • One of the most difficult ships to build. Higher quality of parts being attached improves chance of success.
  • Knarrs show in the creation list when cogs are between 13% and 14%, and corbitas are at 25%
  • To view creation chance see keel section.
  • Ships cannot be hauled up ladders
