Skull and Bones All Ships Explained

Since you play a pirate in Skull and Bone, your best friend will be your ship. Knowing how the various game mechanics related to ships, their weapons, and everything else work is important, but first of all, you need to know the Skull and Bones all ships that you can use during your adventure. In fact, as you continue and increase your infamy, you will have the opportunity to use increasingly better ships. For this reason, in this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about the Skull and Bones ships.

Skull and Bone Ships List

Any type of ship in Skull and Bones has the ability to engage in combat and transport belongings; obviously, however, the damage inflicted and the amount of things you can transport depend on how large the ship will be. In Skull and Bones, we can divide ships into three different categories: Extra Small, Small, and Medium. Before continuing in detail to explain each of these categories and each individual ship, here is the complete list of ships you can use:

  • Dhow
  • Hulk
  • Bedar
  • Cutter
  • Barge
  • Sloop
  • Padewakang
  • Snow
  • Brigantine
  • Sambuk

Skull and Bones All Ships

We said that ships are differentiated into three different categories, which not only indicate their size but also how many resources they can carry and what damage they can inflict in combat. On the other hand, Skull and Bones is a pirate game, so it is important that there is a big focus on the ships and their characteristics. Let's see together in detail all the ships that you can use during your adventure and what their characteristics are.

Extra Small

In this category, there is actually only one ship, which is the first with which you will start your adventure.

When you start playing the game, you're stuck in Sainte-Anne after a shipwreck. You get a small boat called a Dhow to start your adventure. It's not super strong, but it's good enough to help you get back on track. You can use it to hunt animals and gather the stuff you need to make bigger and better ships.


Once you have passed the first stages of the game and have completed a few introductory missions that will help you understand how the various game mechanics work, you will have the possibility to upgrade your ship and have access to increasingly stronger ships.


In Skull and Bones, the Hulk is like a tough little tank. It's small, but it can handle a lot more hits than other ships its size. It's not as agile as other small ships, but it can shrug off enemy attacks easily. Just don't count on it to outrun your enemies anytime soon.


The Bedar is one of the first ships you can build in the game. It's not super strong in terms of weapons, but it has a special perk called Lancer. With Lancer, you might catch your enemies off guard. Use its boosted ramming power to crash into enemy ships and flood them. It's a sneaky tactic that could give you an advantage in battle.


The Cutter is like a helpful friend on the battlefield. It's a support ship, meaning it can assist your teammates and help you win tough fights. It's great at fixing up damage on nearby friendly ships. But be careful; the Cutter isn't very strong on its own. It doesn't have much defense or firepower, so stick close to your allies. Being caught alone on this ship could spell trouble.


The Barge is a tiny ship that's all about setting your enemies on fire. It's got loads of gunports—more than most small ships. That means it can cause huge damage with fire during battles, thanks to its Wildfire perk. If you want to watch your enemies burn, this ship is the one for you.

The Sloop might look small, but it packs a punch with its firepower. Thanks to its Outburst perk, it can handle many attackers at the same time. It's quick and agile, too. Because it's smaller, it's tough for enemies to hit during intense fights.

Once you have learned how to manage a ship and how the various game mechanics related to it work, you can decide to progress further and opt for larger ships that are able to make battles against enemies even more epic.


The Padewakang is probably one of the first medium-sized ships you'll find. The game description says it's really good at fighting lots of enemies at the same time, especially when you add the right gear. And with the Detonate perk, you can make enemy ships explode, hurting anyone close by.


The Snow ship type focuses on defense, but it can still fight when needed. It's a medium-sized ship with a big storage space and strong defenses. This makes it great for carrying all the stuff you've gotten from not-so-legal activities in Skull and Bones.


The Bigantine is a great hit-and-run ship. It's fast and does extra damage when ramming. Use it as a skirmisher in battles: hit your enemies quickly and hard, then escape before things get too risky if you don't want to fail your missions in Skull and Bones.


The Sambuk is all about setting your enemies on fire, just like the Barge. When you make an enemy ship burn, it deals massive damage. And if other enemies are nearby, they will catch fire too, if they're close enough. It's the right choice if you want to deal damage in Skull and Bones.
