More "crusty" than "encrusted".


The Encrusted Boat is a Boat that can be crafted from the Nautical Tab in the Shipwrecked DLC. It requires 6 Boards, 3 Ropes and 4 Limestones to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. It begins with 800 health, which will deplete over time as it is used or if damaged. It can be repaired with a Boat Repair Kit or by sailing close to a Sea Yard.

The Encrusted Boat gains a ×4 speed boost from riding Waves compared to most other Boats (excluding Walani's Surfboard). In addition to being able to equip boat attachments, it allows the player an extra 2 slots of storage.

While moving, it loses durability at a rate of 1 per 3 seconds, lasting a total of 5 days. It has 0.66s hit immunity, like most boats, and the highest map reveal bonus of 2.5 (tied with the Cargo Boat and Armored Boat).

Prototype Tips[]

  • While under the effects of Purple Grouper or Tropical Bouillabaisse, the player can benefit greatly from the 4x speed boost this boat provides when riding waves because the buff from those foods grants the speed boost regardless of the direction the waves are hit. This synergy is even more pronounced when dealing with overwhelming numbers of waves during the hurricane season and in encounters with bosses and whales.
  • Since Coffee adds +5 to base speed, while under its effect an Armored Boat goes from 50% faster to only 22% faster than an Encrusted Boat under the same effect. This gap narrows even more with any additional flat speed bonuses (such as an overcharged WX-78 or from eating Pierrot, Purple Groupers, or Tropical Bouillabaisse). This fact combined with having 60% more HP, 2 inventory slots, and 4x speed boosts from riding waves makes the Encrusted Boat a superior choice for those who have access to these types of speed boosts.
  • Using the Hammer on an Encrusted Boat yields 3 Boards, 2 Rope, and 2 Limestone regardless of its durability. It is therefore far cheaper to simply craft a new one rather than use Boat Repair Kits on a damaged Encrusted Boat.

Placeholder Trivia[]

  • The Encrusted Boat was added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
