The Karve is the first proper ship you can craft in Valheim. It’s faster than a raft, has room for several friends, and a small cargo space.
This should be your first sailing vessel unless you committed the sin against Odin that is building a raft… You will need to save up four bronze and chop down a few birch trees to get the fine wood required, but Karves are well worth the cost.

With a Karve, you can effectively traverse any waterway. You can begin making long voyages and explore the ocean. Watch out for sea serpents though, the karve can be destroyed by a sea serpent if you don’t have arrows to defend yourself.
The Karve, along with all other water vehicles must be placed over water with a hammer.
