Sea of Thieves is all about exploring a vast ocean, which means sailing is a large part of gameplay. There are two ships players can control, the galleon and the sloop. Which one is best? We’re breaking down the strengths and weaknesses of both. You can also check out our other Sea Of Thieves guides linked at the bottom of the article.

Sea of Thieves Galleon Pros and Cons

The large, four-player ship looks impressive, but how does it stack up?

Pros

  • Fits three or four players at once

  • Has more cannons, and can deal more damage

  • Can hold more cargo

Cons

  • Takes longer to get moving

  • Sailing with two or one players is incredibly challenging

  • Easier target to hit in a battle

Sea of Thieves Sloop Pros and Cons

Does size matter when sailing the seas? Let’s compare.

Pros

  • Can be easily operated by one player

  • Quick and easy to maneuver

  • Small size makes it harder to hit in fights

Cons

  • Small storage area for cargo

  • Doesn’t have as many cannons, can’t deal much damage

  • Being a small boat makes you an easy target for larger boats to attack

Conclusion

As stated earlier, both boats have distinct advantages and disadvantages. Ultimately, the best one for you and your crew will come down to how many people you are playing with. If you have three or four players, stick to the big galleon. One or two players should stay with the sloop.

Can I change boats in Sea of Thieves?

If you and your friends are feeling up for the challenge, it’s possible to steal another crew’s boat and take off with it. Of course, this is much easier when you have the numbers of a galleon crew and you swarm a solo player on a sloop. Those looking to upgrade to the galleon will have difficulty making off with another team’s boat.
