The longship was released onto the oceans in late 2007. It is designed after the longships used by the Scandinavian Vikings and Saxons for coastal raids during the Middle Ages.

Other classes

In addition to the basic longship, one other class of longship exists:

Rooms and furnishings

A longship has three scenes: The main deck, the main hold, and the crow's nest.

The total paint required for a Longship is 176 units. When given the option to paint in the crow's nest, it says "railings and sideboards"; however, painting the Crow's Nest changes two alternating vertical colored stripes on the sails, not the Sideboard and Railing.

Real life relation

From Wikipedia:

Longships were ships primarily used by the Scandinavian Vikings and the Saxons to raid coastal and inland settlements during the European Middle Ages. They are often called "longboats", but "longship" is more accurate. The vessels were also used for long distance trade and commerce, and for exploratory voyages to Iceland, Greenland, and beyond.
The longship was characterized as a graceful, long, narrow, light wooden boat with a shallow draft designed for speed. The ship's shallow draft allowed navigation in waters only one meter deep and permitted rapid beach landings, while its light weight enabled it to be carried over portages. Longships were also symmetrical, allowing the ship to reverse direction quickly. Longships were fitted with oars along almost the entire length of the boat itself. Later versions sported a rectangular sail on a single mast which was used to augment the effort of the rowers, particularly during long journeys.
