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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
