This article is about the game command. For the vessels which pirates can board and sail, see ship.

The /vessel command, or vessel chat, allows pirates aboard the same ship to communicate with one another. It is the default chat mode while aboard a ship, and is only available to pirates aboard a ship.


The Vessel command has the following syntax:

/vessel <message> (/ve)

The Vessel command can be combined with the three modifier commands - /think, /shout, and /emote:

/vessel /think <message>
/vessel /shout <message>
/vessel /emote <message>

Appearance in-game

An example of the Vessel command (top), and how it appears combined with the Shout, Emote, and Think commands.

Messages sent via Vessel chat take the following forms:

Piratename says, "Message"
Piratename thinks, "Message" (When combined with /think)
Piratename shouts, "Message" (When combined with /shout)
Piratename Message (When combined with /emote)

All Vessel messages are displayed in the chat window. The accompanying bubbles are shaped like ships, with the edges turned up. The messages use the following colors:

Color RGB (hex) Component
#F4F6F5 Text background
#181818 Border

Who can use this command

  • Any pirate aboard a ship may use this command. However, pirates who have been blackspotted can not use the Vessel command for a short time.

Who can hear messages sent with this command

  • All pirates aboard the same ship as the message sender are able to view Vessel chat messages.
  • If one pirate has muted another, that first pirate will be unable to hear the muted pirate regardless of what channel the muted pirate talks in.
