  3. Craft a champagne bottle and smash it into the ship

Then construct your ship in the Shipyard. Make sure that the ship does not touch the edges of the Shipyard and the Shipyard is as long as the boat.

Make sure to place a seat block in the direction of the front of the ship.

Make sure that your ship’s deck is at least two blocks above the water to prevent water from getting on the boat.

You can then finish your boat by smashing a Champagne Bottle on the boat by right clicking on it with a Champagne Bottle in your hand.
