Everspace 2 – How to get new Ships

Tired of your craft?

Looter-shooter Everspace 2 takes place among the stars, which means your means of travel is important because not only do you use it to get around, but you also use it to fight. Because of this, you'll want to get rid of your starting Ship as soon as possible. Here's how to get new Ships in Everspace 2.

How to buy new Ships in Everspace 2

Though you'll no doubt want to buy a new Ship as soon as you start your spacefaring adventure in Everspace 2, alas, you won't be able to until you clear the Spares and Scrap mission, which is a level five main story quest in the Ceto system. It's pretty early, so you won't have to wait too long to change your starting vessel.

Once the mission is complete, you'll gain access to the first Ship Dealer at Nephtys Plains Station in Nephtys Plains, and this is where you can buy a new ship in Everspace 2.
