Further information you’d better know about the Captaincy Features
Purchasing your Ship
Captain’s ships come in three main sizes. And of them has its prices, which you can pay in gold coins.

You can acquire the ship of your choice, considering all its features, plus, of course, the price too. You will only need to buy each ship only once. And then, once you have purchased the boat, it will be added to your character.
Naming your ship
One important thing you should know when it comes to naming ships is that it’s completely free when you name your ship for the first time. However, in case, if you change your mind and want to rename your ship, you will have to buy a ‘Ship Renaming Deed’. It would cost around $5, and you will have to pay with the game’s real currency; the Ancient Coins.
Customizing your ship
So, this is all up to you because it is your own ship! You could customize it in the way you want, my dear pirate!
You can portraits, trinkets, etc., to your ship as well. And all of them can be received with another new feature; the Milestone’s system. This tracks your highlights in swashbuckling. If your choice is to have them, your ship’s signs of damage and destruction will remain along your journey in this game too. Some of you may prefer to have a flawless look for your while. At the same time, the others may like to have damage and scars on their ships. Certainly, they may feel like those scars reflect their bravery and respect. But it’s all up to you to decide what to do because it’s your ship.
Here are more features!
Once you have completed step one, purchasing your ship, you have the key to enter this fantasy world of pirates! So, when you enter the game, the Pirate Lord will greet you, and there will also be a tutorial for you to have an idea about all other captain features available.
Of the new captain features, the best ones are the availability of stocking your ship at the Shipwright’s Shop where you can have offerings namely, wood, fruits, meat, and cannonballs. And the second is the ability where you can give your loot to an NPC group. Here, they will do all the difficult tasks related to the loot for you. The good news is that this allows stopping the ship once more for things like crates, skulls, etc. One more important thing to remember here is that they will only do their business with the Captains.
