Lutesong Junk is the eastern version of the Galleon.
It comes armed with 8 Multipurpose Cannon, a Medium Compass which reveals ships in the immediate area of the ship, 4 Trade Pack Storage slots allowing it to carry 4 additional trade packs making it an alternative way to complete trade runs, 6 Temporary Underwater Breathing Device which can be equipped to breath underwater for 10 minutes. A Plank is located on both sides of the ship, allowing for better shore access, or helping to board smaller ships, such as Merchant Schooner.
Galleons move North to South at a base rate of 10.2 ms / second and East to West at 7.1ms / second. This makes it much slower than the Clipper. However, with the Galleons ability to Charge for 2 minutes, it increases max move speed by 40% allowing it to move 14.2 ms / second North to South. With Eco Fuel Boost + Charge ability active at the same time, it can move up to 16.7 ms / second North to South making it temporarily the fastest moving ship in the game.
This ship has a very low turn rate, making it difficult to maneuver.

Drydock placement tips
Before placing your drydock you must consider several factors. First of all, it is protected for 3 days after placement, giving you plenty of time for construction. It is generally a good idea, however, to have all the materials ready, before beginning the process. After the 3 days of protection end, other players can attack and destroy your dock, which does not return your materials in case they succeed. Another thing to note, is that, while you can swim with tradepacks, it is easier to place the dock in parallel/perpendicularly to a shore or pier and close enough (with the water still being deep enough) to allow you to walk or jump onto it. You will also need to choose a spot that lies in proximity of Sawmill station, Smelter and Weaving Loom. Otherwise, you will need to walk a long way with tradepacks.
After placing the drydock, there are 6 stages to completing the ship. They must be completed in correct order, or materials won't be accepted. Each of them begins by delivering a set amount of materials, and then applying them for a set amount of labor (usually around 75). The stages, in order, require the following materials:
- 2x Lumber Pack
- 3x Lumber Pack
- 1x Fabric Pack
- 2x Fabric Pack
- 2x Fabric Pack
- 3x Iron Pack
- 2x Iron Pack
After finishing and applying the last stage, you need to interact with the dock one more time, causing the ramp to drop and launching your ship. It might take a while for the game to process everything, so you might be left with nothing for a short while, before your ship renders.
After successful launch, a summoning scroll will be placed in your inventory - activate it to summon or dismiss.
