Ships of POTCO
Jack Sparrow put it well -- a ship is freedom. As soon as you can, upgrade from your Light Sloop to a ship that's better tailored to your needs. Do you fancy a racer that can outrun enemy ships? Or are you more inclined to give up speed for cargo space so that you can plunder a bit more before having to dock? Is heavy firepower your main desire? The choice is yours, depending on the size of your wallet, of course. Remember, you can own more than one ship. If you can afford it, assemble your own fleet!
Ships are a major part of the game and can be considered a way to make money. When you buy your ship, you can go out to it by going over to a dingy and pressing the shift key. Once your out on the High Sea, you can plunder enemy ships by attacking them with cannons and sinking them. By sinking ships, you can gain notoriety points and sailing points You can also board enemy flagships and receive even more notoriety points by attacking and killing all the crew aboard.
You will get your first ship, a Light Sloop, when Elizabeth Swann sends you on a special Quest. This ship is enough to get you around the Caribbean, but because it only has two cannons, you will be extremely vulnerable. As soon as possible, you'll want to buy a bigger better ship from a Shipwright.
You can own more than one ship –– if you can afford it. In fact, you can own a total of three ships! Consider your goals carefully. Each class of hull is designed to do one task superbly –– at the cost of other qualities, though. Purchase your ships from a Shipwright.
Opening Your Ship Menu
All the ships you own can be seen in the Ships Panel. To get to one of your ships, find a dinghy. Interact with the dinghy by pressing SHIFT and a menu will pop up. Select a ship and you'll automatically row out to your ship.
