    They should do pirate ships where you need to get a workshop and collect all sorts of blueprints and materials, and there should be seafaring pirates trying to kill you. Then, if your ship gets damaged, you must bring it to your workshop (which also could serve as a garage?) to get it fixed. There should also be pirate villages with pirates who try to kill you if you steal their resources.

    Maybe there could be naturally generating large boats (ships) manned by merchants or pirates? Just an idea.

    Maybe since they'd be so big, they shouldn't be built using a crafting table, but by placing blocks in a specific pattern (kind of like building iron golems). Sails should be separately crafted and added.

    Once built, it would probably be a coding nightmare to make them fully customizable (placing additional blocks) - due to the fact that they would not always be oriented on the x-y-z plane, so maybe there could be specific slots for chests, cannons, etc.

    A simple solution for a longer boat (not necessarily of ship size) would be to simply put three rowboats on a crafting table horizontally, resulting in a boat three blocks long.

    All three blocks could take players, but the centre block could instead take an item such as a chest or furnace. The boat would have three speeds depending how many players are in it. Steering would be assigned to the first player to enter the boat.

      for the boat you could add a sail block and a helm block so you can create your own Boats with blocks. or add engines if you do a engine you could make old school car planes. and i have a question why no furniture I mean you have chains, apples, and stuff why not a table or chairs. more of a tropical biome would be cool. it would be cool is in the cauldrons you can make color water will you make it so you can pick up the color water and place to make a color full river.

    I think the idea of larger boats would be cool to have in Minecraft! I agree that the ship building should be in steps. However, maybe it could include a new table? Carpenters table for example. Or maybe a new set-up build like a beacon or conduit, where a certain set/pattern of blocks creates something with a totally different functionality.

    I just want a big enough boat to put a horse, dog, and cat in at the same time. Or a couple dogs/couple cats!

    I thought about this,without cannon(but'if it has a cannon that shoots bombs(like tnt but explodes right after hitting entity or blocks)it would be awesome thing.
    maybe they could add normal cannon that can be placed on blocks,and players can craft boat with cannon with that cannon.)
    Smaller version of shipwreck,made of wood(I think iron ship is not good idea for minecraft)
    It is movable entity,I thought it would be great if players can use fuel(like coals or bucket of lava)to move the boat and place few blocks inside like crafting table or furnace.

    If this was added,Minecraft Villages would become cities,and that's good news for players,because it means more resources.

    Me gusta la idea de barcos más grandes, pero no tan grandes como dices (los de lo naufragio) si un bote en el que quepan dos personas como para cuando estés jugando acompañado, o para viajar con tus mascotas ya que siempre que vas a hacer una aventura siempre tienes que dejar a tu mascota en la orilla del mar o en casa, ya que las llevamos también para que nos ayuden en muchas cosas.

    Text: “I like the idea of larger boats, but not as big as you say (the shipwreck) if a boat that can fit two people as for when you are playing accompanied, or to travel with your pets since whenever you go on an adventure you always have to leave your pet on the seashore or at home , since we also take them to help us in many things.”

    bigger boats sounds like a great idea, but the guns don't

    I have had an idea similar to this, search Beaches and Boats to see my idea for this.

    Cannons should not be rejected. They have nothing to do with guns and wouldn't change Minecraft's  rating. Countless games have cannons and are still rated E10+

    maybe like the ark: survival evolved boat machanic, you get a base raft you can build on with a limit, and then craft a motor boat thats fater and you can build more on it?

    This would be fun, maybe instead of guns there could be blow darts? And maybe like the shipwrecks there could be in-tact pirate ships out further in the ocean with pirates on it. Maybe they could be docile unless you're in a bigger boat (they could think you're anotger pirate) or you hit one, and they could trade with you, and instead of just using emeralds like villagers do they could use gold and/or gold nuggets along side. I could see the Captain having a parrot on it's shoulder and asking for something valuable like diamonds or gold blocks for special armour or weapons. I think that pirates could drop gold nuggets, or maybe add a new item, a gold doubloon/coin that could be used as their currency as well as a drop. I'm not sure if this would work but maybe the ships could appear and reappear, like the traveling trader but the whole structer(?) and not just the mobs. If not, either way I think it'd be cool.

    Craft it by putting multiple small boats together on a crafting table.

    Consider this:

    A Sailboat. 

    • Crafted with a normal boat, four (4) wood planks, two (2) iron ingots, a Banner (you can customize it!), and a lantern. (Banner in center, lantern on top middle, Boat on bottom middle, iron ingots on bottom corners, wood planks everywhere else?)
    • Seats a max of four (4), three in the main area, one in the crow's nest (Crow's nest gives Night Vision?) (Second person into sailboat takes the Crow's Nest?)
    • Has a sail and a lantern to sail at night with a 30 block light radius.
    • Can ram objects/mobs
    • Faster sail speed than boats with a wider, slower turn radius (1.5 times boat sail speed? 0.5 times boat turn speed?)
    • Size is roughly 2.5 times the size of a normal boat.
    • Can be enchanted??!!

    Potential enchantments:

    • Wind Catcher: increase sailing speed by (5/10/15/20%)
    • Battering Ram: increase impact/damage by (10/20/30/40%)
    • Wave Cutter: Decrease turn radius/increase turn speed by (10/20/30/40%)
    • Lookout: Increase light radius by (20/40/60/80%) (Max of 54 block light radius)

    Instead of crafting a boat, you could have an “engine block” (which would be a rare treasure item) that other blocks can be attached to. That way, you could build your own boat onto it, but the engine block would also act as the seat (like a normal boat).

    The speed would be affected by how large your boat is and what kind of blocks you use (this could be calculated by blast resistance: weaker blocks are considered ‘lighter’, so wood is fine, but an obsidian boat wouldn’t move).

    This way, the shipwreck boats could actually exist as real boats.

    Perhaps, The boat idea sounds good, maybe like a bed and a crafting table on it. Not a Pirate ship

    There could be a propeller and wheel block.

    -Propeller block would make it possible to make working propellers in order to move ships. Needs a Redstone power source.

    -Wheel block would make it possible to turn a ship while connected to a propeller block with Redstone dust.

    If guns are still rejected, does that include the cannon. I've always wanted cannons in Minecraft without installing a mod but thats fine. All I want tbh is a stationary weapon like a ballista or catapult, something like siege weapons.

    There is no point in having shipwrecks if there are no ships to wreck.
