Manned by a wisecracking shark, Albert’s Shipyard is the first-ever sea facility you’ll come across during your journey as the Spiritfarer.
It’s also the only place where you can purchase upgrades for your blueprint station and ship, as well as make size improvements for more room.
Uses & Functions
Albert’s Shipyard is the only place where you can get upgrades to make your job as the Spiritfarer easier. This includes:
- Unlocking new buildings
- Improving the ones you already have
- Making your ship more sea-worthy
- And even increasing the amount of room you have in your ship
The Shipyard is located at X: 61, Y: 64 (near the middle of the map).
You will first come across the shipyard at the start of the game, during Gwen’s initial requests. Here you’ll learn all about the Blueprint Station, and you’ll build your initial ship facilities.
As you progress in the game you’ll also have to visit the Shipyard constantly to purchase more upgrades and unlock more buildings. This includes picking up building improvement blueprints from other islands.
All in all, here are the three kinds of upgrades you can purchase from Albert’s Shipyard:
- Blueprint Station Upgrades
- Ship Improvement Upgrades
- Ship Size Upgrades
Both the blueprint station and ship improvement upgrades require a set of building materials to purchase, while the ship size upgrades only require a set number of Glims.
