Ships are the primary Sea of Thieves vessels players use to travel the sea, locate objectives, and battle other players and enemies.
Types of Ships[edit | edit source]
- The Sloop is a smaller ship suited to solo or two-man crews. It is more maneuverable and easier to operate. Its Anchor takes less time and manpower to raise, and its Helm (wheel) makes fewer revolutions.
- The Galleon is a much larger ship that can accommodate up to 4 crew members. It generally requires teamwork to operate efficiently, makes slower turns, and takes more manpower to raise anchor — but is better-armed and much more difficult to sink than a Sloop.
|Crew size||1 - 2||3 - 4|
|Cannonball initial stock**||40 (20x2)||45 (15x3)|
|Max Cannonball storage||200||300|
|Banana initial stock||15||15|
|Max Banana storage||100||100|
|Wooden Plank Barrels||1||1|
|Wooden Plank initial stock||15||15|
|Max Wooden Plank storage||100||100|
* Each Sail set consists of one mast of sails, with 2 length rigs and 2 angle rigs each (one each mounted on the port and starboard, ie. left and right sides of the ship). See Sails for details.
** Cannonball stock is split up between the barrels initially (20 per barrel on a Sloop and 15 per barrel on a Galleon).
