    Ships are boats, so also adjusting the subject for easy searching.

    This is important for sea adventures so you have a base you can take with you on sea adventures

    I think a sail powered boat would fit better with Minecraft.  It would be an oversimplification, but the boat could just move in whichever direction the sail is pointed and stop when the sail is lifted.

    I agree with ClayGoddessSari. I don’t want to see anything too modern added to this game. If they were to add larger boats, maybe ships that look like the shipwrecks and but with sails.

    but it would have to break if it crashes in to land

    Mojang could make it so depending on how big the boat is you can build on it

    It should be sail powered and the more sail blocks there are it should go faster. Also, the block type for the hull should be limited to just wood.

    I also think that you interact with the steering wheel instead of standing on a pressure plate.

    Sails should be crafted like this, P means paper and W means wool:

    P W P
    W P W
    P W P

    I like this idea, but I would also like if you could add stationary balista for anti air weapons or use them to harpoon anything in the water and also cannons for attacking guys on land or at sea.  Also the engine turns the propeller.

    Player controlled sailing ships could be interesting, but this seems like something that would require several new blocks plus actual in game construction to spawn, such as with the Iron Golem and Wither boss.

    Suggested new blocks would be the Helm/Steering Wheel, Rudder, Mast, and Sail.

    Restricting the hull construction to wood to match the Sunken Ships found in the Overworld, have them faster than the rowboat on forward speed, but slower on turn speed.

    Biggest drawback I can see, is that the construction of such a ship would likely require a 5 wide and 9 long design to be able to hold a cabin/bed and a double chest cargo hold. (Not sure how large to suggest the ships as an entity would be)

    Multiplayer benefit would be that 4 or 5 players could ride together(including the player at the helm) to places that are far from land. Having actual seats for the players, means the risk of multiple hostile mobs being able to board the ship, which could be a risk.
