Customize Your Very Own Pirate Ship!

Make your Pirate ship your very own with tons of custom options and add-ons through ship equipment! You can get special cannons, sails, totems and much more.

To view your ship's equipment you can either click "My Ship Equipment" from the main ship menu, or view from your Pirate's inventory. Just click the "B" key on your keyboard, and then click the blue arrow in the top right corner to view ship items.

Ship items make your ship better. They can improve your ship’s statistics—making it faster, stronger, and do more damage, in addition to other positive effects. Maybe most importantly, ship items grant you powerful new abilities to use in ship-to-ship Broadside Combat.

Where can I find ship equipment?

You can find ship items and equip them on your ship just like you can on your player character. Also like player equipment, ship equipment can be found as loot, received as a reward, purchased in the Crown Shop, or purchased from a vendor in the world.

Tip for Getting Ship Equipment Drops!

Defeating ships by boarding them and fighting hand to hand won't result in ship equipment loot drops like outright sinking a ship in the Skyway will.
