The Motorboat is a player vehicle that allows for transportation on water. The Motorboat platform is useful for establishing a mobile base as structures, beds, and storage items can be placed directly on top. Foundation pieces (such as a Metal Foundation or Stone Fence Foundation) must be used as a base to build structures on the raft.

It is the upgraded version of the Wooden Raft.png Wooden Raft and offers a greater speed, size and health than its wooden counterpart. It uses Gasoline.png Gasoline as fuel.

Limitations[edit | edit source]

  • Structure limit: 138 (On private servers or in single player the limit can be increased via PerPlatformMaxStructuresMultiplier)
  • Height limit: Survivors can build up to 8 walls high above the raft, and up to 80 walls below it.
  • Size limit: 13x13 (with the corners being cut off)

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the Wooden Raft, the Motorboat can move in reverse.
  • Purely aquatic creatures, such as the Megalodon.png Megalodon and Piranha.png Megapiranha, will not attack the raft or anything on it.
  • Sarco.png Sarcos will not attack the driver (actively driving), but passengers, including tamed Dinosaurs, are fair game to it.
  • The otherwise passive Leedsichthys.png Leedsichthys will actively attack any Rafts they see, unlike other marine life near the surface of the water. Generally, the increased speed and health of the Motorboat makes it possible to escape from an attack. The alpha leedsichthys, however, is still faster than the motorboat.
  • Animals capable of wearing platform saddles, such as Paraceratherium.png Paracer, Brontosaurus.png Brontosaurus, and Quetzal.png Quetzal are unable to stand on other platforms, which includes the Motorboat. When such an animal attempts to stand on the boat, it will slide right off it. The Quetzal, on the other hand, will automatically take off upon landing on the boat.
