A few months back, on a typical day, I was heading to my ship on the docks. on the first dock to the very left, there was an unobtainable steamboat ship docked. You could board the ship and everything. It lacked a wheel and a cabin. I showed some friends, and random people from Avery's Court, and we were all clueless to what it was. I, of course, remain clueless. If anyone has a theory or reason for the ship being here, please tell me. I really want to find the origin of this mysterious ship.

You aren't the first to see this ship and report it. Without further clues ( ship's name, owner's name, etc. ) speculation is useless.
1. Is it a new ship from a bundle or Crown Shop being tested by a KI developer? ( But don't they have in house servers for testing new items? )
2. Is it a ship belonging to a new NPC friend or enemy?
And
3. What realm were you on when you saw the ship?

Ahoy!

There's a few reasons I could think of that would cause this to happen.
  • You may have found a bug in the game; sometimes these can't really be explained!
  • If I remember correctly (please correct me if I am wrong), there was recent server maintenance for the game. Perhaps they put a surprise into Skull Island's docks? We all know KingsIsle loves to tease for upcoming events.
  • You may have found a fellow player who has manipulated their account and given themselves an item previously unobtainable; which is against the rules, but still possible. It might not have all the features of a regular ship due to 3rd party code being unreliable/out of date.

If you haven't already, I would report this to KingsIsle; screenshots, too, if you have some!

Best of luck; I'm curious to see the answer to this mystery too!

I saw this ship as well once, in the exact same spot. It may just be a decoration or a glitch. I doubt it is a glitch though, and if it was a decoration, it would probably be there all the time. This makes me think it is hacked? Just a theory anyways.

Might it have something to do with the party barge? Maybe it was showing up in the wrong location.

I have seen a picture of this ship, it is a different color than the party barge.

I forget the realm. It was a very long time ago... I also believe that a friend of mine who was next to me when I saw it reported it. I may go to the Blind Mew's Musings thread and ask.

Was it red? Sometimes that acts as a placeholder for a color not loaded yet. I can confirm it is not the ship mentioned in the thread One-eyed Jack's/Tom's Mystery ship. That one looks very nice, but is nothing like a CR steamboat.
