The Indefatigable

The Indefatigable was a Royal Navy ship, and she launched in 1784 and served in the French Revolutionary War. The ship’s name also means being unable to be fatigued, which is perfect for players who plan to spend multiple hours in their Sea of Thieves session.

The Odyssey

Another suitable ship name from Greek mythology would feature the Odyssey in some way. It is a famous poem that follows King Odysseus as he returned from the Troy War and the adventures that unfolded to him as he attempted to return to his kingdom and his family. It’s a harrowing tale; hopefully, you don’t find yourself stuck at sea for several years.


The Velox is a Latin word for “swift” and “fast,” which is perfect for any ship and crew piloting her that plan to sweep across the Sea of Thieves. Although the name might not be entirely flashy, it’s a short, quick name for any suitable ship you plan to sail into the horizon.
