How to Get Ship Skins in Lost Ark

How do Ship Skins work?

Ship Skins are cosmetics you can apply to your ship in Lost Ark. Like character skins, Ship Skins not only change your ship’s look but also carry bonuses and perks that can significantly improve your ship’s stats and abilities.

One Ship Skin that applies to all ship models in Lost Ark is Hermida’s Song.

The Hermida’s Song gives your ship 12 Resistance Points you can assign to the Resistance of your choice. In addition, Hermida’s Song also adds two passive skills – Inexhaustible Power and Fast Route. Inexhaustible Power gives your ship a 30% chance to instantly refill its Fast Sailing Meter by two ticks to full, while Fast Route auto-triggers Fast Sailing whenever it is ready (only works when you have a route set)

Other ship skins can add up to two unique skill effects to your ship when equipped. Refer to the ship skin list below to learn about each ship skin’s bonuses and effects.

Ship Skins aren’t too difficult to get in Lost Ark, as most ship skins can be bought from the in-game Shop or acquired by collecting enough Mokoko Seeds and Island Souls.

It might be worth investing in ship skins, as you’ll eventually spend more and more time sailing as you jump from one content to another in the endgame. These optional cosmetic items carry valuable passive and active bonuses that can speed up your travel and make island-hopping a bit easier.
