The Slantnose is the first available vehicle for World Map exploration. It is acquired early on in disc 2. It is a rather small ship; unable to navigate through the more dangerous waters encircling Numara. Meaning it can't go through the hypercurrents, shallows, nor can it break through ice.
The Slantnose was originally intended to be General Kakanas' command ship, but is hijacked by Kaim and crew as they make their escape from Numara. The engine of the Slantnose was salvaged from a giant fish that had swallowed it. At one point it was the engine of Seth's pirating ship.
There's not much to this ship. You can talk to Jansen, Ming and Seth on the inside of the ship. Talking to Seth Will give you the option to view the tutorial again or navigate the ship. Cooke and Mack are hanging out on the exterior of the ship.
