A Smal Sailboat is a basic vessel that can be constructed after learning the Basic Shipbuilding tech. The ship may be launched and used for transport in any body and debth of water. Unlike ferries, sailboats are not limited to a set range. For a more advanced ship, see the Master's Schooner.
DISCLAIMER: Please only add tested information.
The small sailboat have two main usages:
- Mobile platform for recovering ship debrief, other types of loot and Treasure Cashes, in the undertaking of the Test of Isis Bounty.
- A means of transport by water. Please note that, unlike Master's Schooners, small sailboats may not be upgraded with a cargo hull.

The basic shipbuilding tech
While basic shipbuilding 1 allow for construction of a sailboat, this boat will sink within a few minutes (NOTE: maximum time is unknown, but up to 11 minutes at level 1 has been confirmed). Higher levels will allow for longer voyages.
Decay and destruction
After X amount of time at sea or any other body of water, currents will damage the small sailboat. If the ship takes too much damage, it will sink, the player being shipwrecked at a random shore (NOTE: respawn position needs more testing).
Unlike Airships, boats can be steered quite precisely. A control panel is offered, and the lowering and lifting of the anchor functions as a start/stop button.
For now, see the discussion page.
Fishing from a small sailboat is possible, both while anchored and while the ship is moving (allowing “trawling”). See Fishing for more information.
For more information about ships and their role, see the Test of Isis Bounty page.
