I have the pirate raft and skiff you get for quests and have just got to Monquista.I have the gold to buy almost any ship but not sure which one to buy. I know that good parts can be hard to find and I think that there aren't any vendors that sell parts for galleons.

There are certain ships that you will get as part of quests at different points in the game. The next one you will get from a quest is the Monquista skiff (from Hooktail). If you can manage it, try to use your current ship until you get the new ship from the quest. You can always ask for help from other players if you need it.

One thing to keep in mind, you will be given a Monquistan Skiff as you complete Monquista...
I usually hold out buying a ship until I get to Cool Ranch, and then get a frigate, or galleon.

The Pirate Galleon vendors - one for ships and another for parts - are in the docks at Scrimshaw.

I finished Monquista and I never met Hooktail. I also never got any free ship and I bought my own!

Hooktail is not in monquista, he is in puerto mico when you are trying to go to Valencia ( the chapter after monquista

Wait until you finish Monquista
You get a Monquistan Skiff right before you go to Avernus
After you finish Valencia, you go to Cool Ranch. Then you buy the Bison Skiff, or keep your ship and save your money for a Bison Frigate (you can buy it in the bison village)

I recommend the Bison Frigate when you get to Cool Ranch. You can survive with the Monquistador Skiff until you are able to get to Big Sky and, if level 20, buy the Bison Frigate at Bison Village. Haven't got the Bison Galleon yet, so I can't comment on that yet. The ships below Galleons seem to have faster recharge rates on weapons and repair.

Ok, the place that is built inside a Batacuda skeliten has a Galleon for about 8'000 gold. Pick that one!
