Shipwrecks are generated structures that primarily generate in oceans. Sometimes they also generate on beaches and rarely in rivers.

Generation[edit]

Shipwrecks generate in all oceans, rivers and beaches. They may also generate inside icebergs.[Bedrock Edition only] [needs testing]

Structure[edit]

Shipwrecks are shaped to resemble classic sailing vessels or pirate ships. They will generate in one of three ways: upright, sideways, or upside-down. In many cases, they will be missing their bow, stern, mast, and multiple other blocks, appearing damaged, but it is also possible to find them in one piece. They consist solely of wood materials, including logs, stripped logs, planks, fences, stairs, trapdoors, and doors. With the exception of acacia wood, all variants of wood are used in the shipwreck's structure, but it is usually built out of only two wood types at a time (Spruce + dark oak, birch + oak, jungle + spruce, and so on).

Loot[edit]

See also: Chest loot

Shipwrecks contain 1–3 chests that have loot in them. Supply chests generate in the bow of the ships, treasures chests generate in the upper section of the stern, and map chests in the lower section. If a section of a ship is missing, the treasure chest for that respective section will also be missing.

Supply chests[edit]

Each shipwreck supply chest contains 3–10 item stacks, with the following distribution:
