A ship in Imperialism 2 is built in your shipyard, found on the "Units Scroll" in your "Give Industry Orders" screen. Unlike the ships in Imperialism, all have some attack capacity and some armor, all but one have carrying capacity, and each requires a peasant as part of its creation.

Ships appear in an area of sea, initially just next to your capital or to its river mouth, and can be moved from one sea zone to another, the distance in one turn depending on the "Speed" factor.
