Charter ships are a way to sail across and travel Runescape. They were added to the game on August 22, 2006, and they are another very useful way to get around RuneScape. You can use ships to travel to different ports, such as Port Sarim, Port Phasmatys, Port Khazard, and even the new Port Tyras! Of course, there is a fee, but not to worry, the fee is not very much.

Access to Charter Ships

The ships will sail you to all of the locations found on the map below.

No special requirements are needed to use the ships. You simply need to find a dock with a Charter Ship, pay a fee, and off you go. To get to some locations, there are certain quest requirements. When you select your destination, your current location will not be shown, for obvious reasons. Why would you want to pay to get taken to the place your at right now? Anyway, some ports are unavailable from other ports. Example, you cannot sail from Port Phasmatys to Mos Le'Harmless. Why? Well, Bill Teach has a ship close to the Port Phasmatys charter ship, and Bill will take you for free.

When you land at your destination, a message will appear in your chatbox to inform you of where you sailed.

You pay the fare and sail to Port Tyras

Payment for Charter Ships

As stated before, there is a fee to use these ships. The fee is different for each dock. It could be cheaper at other docks. You can also lower the prices. With completion of Cabin Fever, the people who run the ships will give you discount prices, since you have proven you know your way around the ship. The prices will all be halved. You could also use the Ring of Charos (activated), which will also lower the cost by a few more coins. If you use both the ring and have the quest complete, the costs will be a lot smaller. One more thing, you can only lower the cost of traveling to Mos Le'Harmless by the Ring of Charos (a) as Cabin Fever is required to sail to the pirate island.


The Charter Ship is located north of Brimhaven, west of the boat that takes you to and from East Ardougne.

The General Store

Wait! There's more! Along with these charter ships come a brand new general stores. All the stores are linked (meaning the stock of items would be the same in Brimhaven and Port Tyras). These general stores sell very useful items, such as seaweed, soda ash, and sand, which is very fast in glassmaking. Here, take a look for yourself:
