How To Upgrade Your Ship
A majority of ship upgrades can be purchased from Albert’s Shipyard. It’s one of the first areas you visit in the game and is best recognized by the shark character Albert who enjoys telling cheesy jokes.
Depending on the upgrade type, you may have to gather a combination of materials from different islands throughout the world. The exception is when you’re upgrading your ship’s size, which only requires Glim.
Blueprint Station upgrades can also be purchased from Albert. Once you have the blueprint for a room or workshop, you can build it directly on your ship via the workbench above the navigation room. Certain upgrades require you to speak to the Spirit passengers aboard your boat and complete favors before they become available, so make sure to keep track of their requests.
All Ship Upgrades
There are 21 ship upgrades in Spiritfarer, and unlocking them all will require quite a bit of grinding on your part. Thankfully, the game can be beaten by acquiring just 10 of them, assuming you don’t mind running a crowded ship.
Upgrades are split into three categories: Blueprint Station Upgrades, Ship Size Upgrades, and Ship Improvement Upgrades. Below, we’ve provided a list of every upgrade along with their cost and description.
