Ship customization in Daikoukai Jidai V is similar to those of previous titles. New models are acquired by collecting blueprints from the ship roulette or story events. Players can visit Leonardo da Vinci in Prague, Florence, or Cologne to fuse different blueprints into superior ones, though the chances of success depend entirely on rank. If the attempt fails, only the base blueprint remains.
Ship's can be built, repaired, and modified at a town's shipyard. The player can repair damaged ships with gold, but they cannot be completely restored without gems. Morale is often affected by a ship's condition, so it's advised to keep the fleet in top shape for sailing.
Attributes for a ship are placed into simplified categories by sailing type, or whether they are best fitted for adventuring, combat, or trade, as well as size. The larger the ship, the more storage and crew it can handle. Draw tickets from the ship roulette to obtain new parts and designs. Ship roulette is nearly the same as scouting except the NP option is removed. Tickets can be earned through giveaways and by completing quests; gems are used for instant results. Each ship can alter a small number of slots; one possible figurehead and two possible protective items/cannons can be equipped. Armaments cost 10 gold each to add or remove per ship.
When the protagonist is level 10 and completes the main story quests for that level, they gain another ship slot. This trend continues at ten level increments until level 60. If the player has befriended another player, they can rent their friend's main ship to assist their own fleet. Rentals can be used once per day, and they cannot be changed until twenty-four hours pass from their last decision.
