How to make a Boat in Minecraft

In Minecraft, boats are one of the most consistent and cheapest methods of travelling across vast expanses of water quickly.

They have been a staple in Minecraft since 2010 because of their simple crafting recipe. They travel at varying speeds depending on which block they’re traveling on, and are frequently used by players to transport mobs far distances if leads aren’t an option, like with villagers in the game.

Required Materials to Craft a Boat in Minecraft:


The materials you will need in order to craft a boat in Minecraft are:

  1. Crafting table
  2. 5 wooden planks (of any kind)

How to make a Boat in Minecraft?


In a Nutshell:


To make a boat in Minecraft, open the crafting area made up of the 3x3 grid. Place 2 oak wood planks in the first row on either side and 3 oak wood planks placed in the second row. Once you complete making the boat, move it to your inventory.


Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):


Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to make a boat in Minecraft:


The first step is to chop down any type of logs to get the wood that you need for the recipe. A minimum of 3 logs are needed for this recipe, considering the crafting table and the boat itself.

To make wooden planks, simply place the logs that were collected into one of the slots in the survival inventory crafting table, as demonstrated below.


Put 5 wooden planks in Crafting table


Once the logs are converted into wooden planks, you can then progress to making a crafting table. This guide explains more about how to make a crafting table.

You will need a crafting table to make the boat, as it will not fit into the 2x2 survival inventory crafting table.

After placing down your crafting table, you can use your left over planks to make the boat you want. Simply place them in a U-shape along the crafting table, as shown below.
