Ships are divided into classes of vessel that relates to the size and capability in battle and transportation. The small ships are designed for solo or small group content, perhaps 1 to 4 players. The medium size ships are equipped for a full party that consists of 8 players. The large ships, such as galleons, are for raid size content, that may be used for PvP battles. Some ship classes will have the ability to apply crown control to other ships, one example of this is the harpoon launcher for the small sized ships that can be used to take control of galleons if they work together. Players will have boatsman skills where they will progress as they gain experience through naval content.
