Collect the necessary materials

Before starting to talk to you about how to build a yacht on Minecraft , it is important to first illustrate the materials that can be useful for dealing with this project.

A yacht is generally white in color. For this reason, you can use white concrete blocks as a base material for all its external coating. To get this resource, you will need to combine, in a workbench , 4 units of gravel , 4 units of sand and 1 of bone meal . From this process, a block of concrete powder is obtained which, once positioned and poured over the water , will allow to obtain a block of concrete .

Another material useful for the construction of a yacht is wood , which serves to create the interior trim of the boat. You can use any variety of wood to decorate the yacht, such as fir , birch or oak . You can also use a mix between the different varieties of wood, but giving a unique tone may be the easiest and fastest choice.

My advice is to create the wooden planks , inserting inside a workbench of wooden logs . You can also use the wooden slabs for flooring and, in this case, you have to place 3 units of wooden planks in a workbench .

In case you want to add a touch of style to your project, I recommend you use glass , which is an interesting material for finishing. In case you want to know how to make this resource, I recommend you read my guide on how to make glass on Minecraft .

Finally, you can use any other decorative element to be placed inside the yacht, such as doors , trunks or work tools. The choice of how to decorate your boat is up to you.

Building a yacht in Minecraft

Now that you have an idea of ​​the materials to be used for the construction of a yacht, it’s time to start realizing the project. First, get to the sea shore and start placing blocks on the surface of the water. To help you do this, place 1 block of concrete adjacent to the shore and continue construction until you have twenty blocks away from it.

Now that you are just a little far from the shore, you can use this row of blocks as a base for building the yacht. In this regard, build a large rectangular area that will be the basis of your project. I recommend at least an area of ​​size 10 x 7 .

Once this is done, on what will be the bow of the yacht, build another area of ​​size 5 × 3 . Once this is done, add an additional area of ​​size 2 × 3 and finally add two concrete blocks to complete the base of the bow.

At this point, add the concrete blocks  along the entire perimeter of the base, sliding their positioning one space towards the bow. This operation is essential for your project to have the appearance of a boat. If you have any doubts about how to place the blocks, I recommend you to view the image below.

You will have to continue to perform the same operation that I indicated in the previous paragraph for at least three other layers.

When you are finished, place a layer of wooden planks to close the upper area, taking care to close the profile with a line of concrete blocks .

Once this is done, use the wooden slabs to floor the interior of the yacht, reaching the same length as the top layer of wooden planks.

At this point, close the access area with wooden planks , taking care to leave a gap to place the wooden door later . Alternatively, decorate the access by making it wider.

Another operation to be carried out is to create the portholes, removing the concrete blocks on the sides of the yacht and installing roof windows .

In addition, you can embellish the boat with glass balconies and inserting a ladder to reach the upper deck, also adding a cabin that will contain the helm , which I will tell you about in the next chapter .

The last thing to do is to demolish the blocks that connect the yacht to the shore, so that the boat gives the impression of floating on the surface of the sea.

Enable yacht navigation through mod

Now that you’ve built the yacht, it’s time to use it to sail the seas of Minecraft. This operation is not possible without the use of mods adapted for this purpose. An example is Davinci’s Vessels , which allows you to motorize your projects, so as to create aircraft and boats.

To use mods on Minecraft, you need Minecraft Forge , available for free on its official website . Then, reach the link I have provided you and press on the Windows Installer item , to download the installation file. Once the download is complete, double-click on it and press OK , in the screen that is shown to you, to install the tool in question.

After that, reach the path C: Users [name] AppDataRoaming.minecraft with File Explorer and open the mods folder . In case you don’t find it, create it manually .

Well, we’re almost there! Now, you need to download the Davinci’s Vessels and MovingWorld mods from, by pressing the appropriate button:  Download latest file . In doing so, you will download the JAR files that must be placed in the mods folder of Minecraft.

You just have to start Minecraft and press the ▲ icon, which you find next to the Play button . Then choose the Forge profile and click on Play , to start the game with the mods. It therefore falls into the world previously created, where the yacht is present, to add the new features offered by the mods.

In Creative mode , you will find everything you need starting from the second page of the inventory menu, in the Davinci’s Vessels tab . Equip a Ship’s Helm , which represents a rudder , useful for navigation and to operate the entire yacht.

You will then need a Steam Engine , which uses coal or any other fuel to increase the speed of the boat. Finally, the Floater is essential , of the blocks that must be positioned under the hull of the yacht, to allow it to float. Then immerse yourself in water and place a layer on the entire surface of the hull.

When you have completed this operation, interact with the right button on the rudder ( Ship’s Helm ) and press the Assemble Ship button  . Then press the Mount Ship button  to start using the yacht. To stop browsing, I suggest you press the K button and select the Disassemble button in the box you see .

If you notice that the yacht submerges too much in the water, flooding the internal area, it means that you have not placed enough Floater blocks . Add a few more levels to make sure that the entire weight of the yacht is supported by these blocks.
