As you're a newbie in the world of sea adventures, you can build one ship: the YACHT.
The ship is like the sled with sails instead of dogs. 😄

You'll have to pay your crew, stock up on PROVISIONS, and install UPGRADES if you want to travel faster and longer.

You don’t need to hire sailors in the Tavern, but you need to pay them. 1 day of travel will cost you 30 SILVERS:

Each sailor needs 1 portion of Provision per day.
The Yacht requires 2 sailors, so you'll need 2 portions of provision per day of travel.

You can make Provisions at the Shipyard or purchase some at the Market.
