The Cargo Boat is a craftable Boat in the Shipwrecked DLC. Along with being customizable with boat attachments, it allows the player an extra 6 slots of storage. It begins with 300 durability, which will deplete over time or as it takes damage. The Cargo Boat can be repaired with a Boat Repair Kit.
While moving, it loses Durability at a rate of 1 per 4.8 seconds, lasting a total of 3 Days.
- A Set Piece can be found with a lone Cargo Boat that contains a Spear Gun, a Spear and 3 Morsels, but if the player gets on the boat, 3 Sea Hounds will spawn and attack the player. Depending on when the player has found the boat, the Morsels may spoil and become Rot.
- A Cargo Boat (and most likely other boats as well) may be placed on land by accident (when placed too close to the land/sea border), causing the boat to travel on land instead of in the water.
