This page lists all known limited edition ships in chronological order complete with their original shipyard sale prices.

The current resale price of a limited edition ship will vary depending on demand, how many are for sale, age of the ship and other factors. The original sale prices, however, are a good starting point for finding the low end of how much a limited edition ship can cost.

Game design and historical aspects

The original sale prices of limited edition ships are a unique window into the game's history. Limited edition ships have changed a lot over time with new floor plans, altered themes, and extra bells and whistles being added and changed by Three Rings as the years have gone by. In general, older ships have more simple designs than newer ones. Looking at the limited edition ships chronologically gives a window into how the designs have evolved.

Another interesting game design choice shown by the limited edition ship prices is in the prices themselves. In order to keep ships that either contain items of great in-game value or are very unusual and less "pirate-y" from overrunning the game, the more unusual the ship is, the more it cost when purchased from the shipyard.

For example, the Jungle Sloop with it's theme of monkeys and tropical islands fits nicely in the game which is why it is one of the least expensive sloops on the list. In contrast, the Alice sloop is one of the most expensive limited edition sloops due to it's theme having almost nothing to do with pirates with almost nothing similar to it previously existing in the game. The practice of pricing things higher to keep the game's feel consistent is also seen with ship renames in the Rogue mark shop.
