All Ships by Type, with Price (and Location)

I’ve included the maximum deeplines for boats that have that capability, because that information is not included in the in-game descriptions for those ships, for some reason.

Also, all ships that have multiple riggings will have the same maximum number of pots/longlines/deeplines/nets.

At $10,000 it’s the cheapest vessel in the game, besides the Mikki (which you already own at the beginning of the game).

Top-of-the-line trawler from Barents Sea.

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. Thank you for the 18:40 rule tip!! I know this rule well for everything except deepline. I had to restart my game since a bug from an update ruined my main save game (no fish on sonar) Until i saw your tip i thought at best i could only get 1 tune at a time. Since following i’ve had 2-3 tune on every line. Thanks again!

  2. Has ‘Cape Roseway Lighthouse’ been removed as a point of interest? Been there plenty of times and I never see any question mark symbol even when I go right up to the lighthouse.

  3. First of all, Thank you for this guide, but after the newest patch there is a new boat in the game and also I noticed that some prices have changed, the Deckster for example now cost (for me) 4.950.000$…

    • i only use this guide for boat locations, both where to discover them and where to buy them once they are discovered, as a lot of the boats have had their stats and price changed, and they added a new boat as you said.
      I have a notepad next to me when playing and write lists of the stats of the boats, so i can compare them.

  4. Oh man, at least this is the first thing i’ve seen explaining there is a “Dock at Port” button for first person view. Thank you!

  5. Awesome guide, thanks! I played Barents Sea for a bit and enjoyed it, but both seem to be a bit lacking on in-game information.

  6. Just got the game 2 days ago in the summer sale. Looks like they nerved some of the boats a lot.

    Ocean Runner is now 20 Deeplines, 20 Longlines, 20 Nets, 50 crab pots.
    Double Trouble got even more nerved – 20 Deeplines, 15 Longlines, 15 Nets, 80 crab pots.

    So if you do deeplines and upgrade from Ocean Runner to Double Trouble you won’t get more lines, the more of cargo is useless all you get is 1/3 more speed. 15 knots instead of 10.
    For Longline you get even less on a 1.2 million ship.

    • a lot of the boats are adjusted, both in stats and price, and they have added one more boat to the vanilla game, a pelagic (mid water) trawler. this review came out 3 days after the release of the game. It is now 2 years later

  7. Thank you so very much! I was swordfishing the first year sped ahead to season two. Can’t find any swords. So I am going to start over again!

  8. The scallop gutting is a real skill. I think in between the 4 and 5 o’clock position of the shell. You will see a maybe 2 cm round etch. If you go to the lower corner of the etch. Not the shell itself but inside that etc and then sweep on a 45 degree North East angle you can get a 5 star gut. But I haven’t quite mastered it yet. But the damn knife having the blade facing away instead of the sharp edge towards the cut just screws my mind up. I can’t understand why you would release a product and give no damn instruction on how to master it. Here kids, go get some gunpowder, manure and some diesel. And get a garbage can and see if you can make a bomb. lol I just don’t understand what they think when putting and end product together. And I am on my second season. I time skipped. Haven’t found one swordfish swimming on the surface not a one. What a pain in the aft that is! I need help lmao
