How to Choose a Captivating Name for Your Ship in Sea of Thieves

Be it the Queen Mary’s Revenge, the Flying Dutchman, or the Golden Hind, an iconic pirate ship demands an equally iconic name. With the introduction of Captaincy in Sea of Thieves, players now have the opportunity to name their ships and build formidable reputations. While naming a ship may seem simple, there are a few factors to consider. Join us as we guide you through the process of naming your ship in Sea of Thieves.

Naming a Ship in Sea of Thieves

Naming your ship is an uncomplicated task, available to all players. However, it does come with a price—both literally and figuratively. To take advantage of this feature, you must have a minimum of 250,000 gold.

Step 1: Your first step is to purchase a ship. Only captained ships can be named, so be prepared to spend between 250,000 and 500,000 gold on the vessel.

Step 2: When acquiring a ship, you will be prompted to enter a name of your choice.

Step 3: After entering the desired name, click on the Submit button. If the name is deemed acceptable, it will be saved to your ship. This way, anyone who views your ship will also see its name.

Choosing an Impressive Ship Name

Several important caveats exist when it comes to naming your ship. The name must not exceed 20 characters, include numbers, start or end with a space, or contain certain special characters. However, ship names don’t necessarily need to be original. So, fear not if your desired name is already taken. It is an ideal opportunity to unleash your creativity. Here are some of the best ship names in Sea of Thieves we’ve encountered:

  • The IRS
  • Pier Pressure
  • Plunder Mifflin
  • 1995 Subaru Outback
  • Unsinkable II
  • The Alcoholic Albatross
  • Row V Wave

Renaming a Ship in Sea of Thieves

If you’re unsatisfied with the name you initially chose or simply want a change, it is possible to rename your ship. However, there’s a catch. You can either spend ancient coins to acquire a renaming deed or delete your existing ship and purchase a new one. The former option incurs real-world expenses, while the latter means losing all progress made with the ship’s milestones and requiring you to spend gold on a new vessel.

Step 1: To rename your ship, launch Sea of Thieves and select Pirate Emporium from the main menu.

Step 2: Navigate to the Captaincy tab.

Step 3: Select the Ship Renaming Deed option and proceed with the purchase. If you lack sufficient ancient coins, a pop-up will appear, prompting you to buy an ancient coin bundle. The Renaming Deed costs 499 ancient coins or $5.49 in real-world USD.

Step 4: Return to the main menu and choose to Play.

Step 6: Locate the ship you wish to rename and select the Rename option on the left.

Step 7: A warning will appear, informing you that renaming the ship will consume the Renaming Deed. Proceed, and a window titled “Enter New Name” will appear, allowing you to enter your newly chosen name.

Dismantling a Ship

If you prefer a fresh start and want to delete your old boat entirely, it is an option. Keep in mind that all progress and applied cosmetics will be lost, and you will need to pay the full price once again to obtain a new ship.

Step 2: Choose the ship you wish to delete and select the Dismantle option from the available choices on the left.

Step 3: A warning will appear, notifying you that dismantling the ship is irreversible. Confirm your decision to dismantle, and upon a second prompt, reconfirm once more. You can now start anew with a ship of the same size, naming it using the previously explained method.

We hope this guide has provided you with all the information you need to give your ship a remarkable name in Sea of Thieves.
