The image above is a great example of one of the simplest pirate ships possible. It is very small and will be a quick build.

Players are recommended to begin with the deck of the ship first and work down. This will allow the player to decide the shape of their ship. The pirate ship above starts with a flat rectangle for the deck.

The player must then create a sharp point at the front of the ship, with the end being one block wide and a few blocks long. Players should be careful not to make the tip of their ship too long for aesthetic reasons. The tip is usually raised a bit on pirate ships, and a completely flat deck will also not look natural.

The back of the ship will not be pointed, and will ideally have a flat or round shape. The back of the ship should also be slightly higher than the front. Basically, the ship should look like a very short and thick pencil when seen from above.

After completing the body of the ship, Minecraft players will be happy to know that they have already completed most of the build. Finally, the mast of the ship only requires a long pole reaching up into the sky, with wool to act as the sail.
