A player is riding a boat

A boat is a wooden vehicle which floats on any water and can be used to travel on the surface of any water. Travelling by boat is slightly faster than walking.


To set the boat up, place it on top of water. After is has been placed, use (right-click) it to enter it. You are now on the boat. On the boat, the movement controls are slightly different than usual:

  • Forwards key: Increase speed
  • Backwards key: Decrease speed (you can have negative speed, meaning you can go backwards)
  • Left key: Turn boat counter-clockwise
  • Right key: Turn boat clockwise

To leave the boat, simply use it again.
