Upgrading the Jackdaw


How do I upgrade the Jackdaw in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag?


Starting in Sequence 3, Memory 4 ("Raise the Black Flag"), you'll be asked to purchase a Hull upgrade for the Jackdaw. After this point you are able to upgrade the Jackdaw by entering the Captains Quarters found on the ship (as shown below).

Please note that some upgrades will require you to reach certain points in the main story, and with some upgrades you'll need to complete side missions or go treasure hunting to obtain plans.

You can also purchase upgrades for the ship from Harbourmasters, which you can find on your map with this icon (seen in the centre of the screen below):
