In my Traveller Round I houseruled that it works, because I couldn't find matching rules either. We have ruled that if you want to be able to use it, it takes up 2x its tonnage in floor spaces. If you cram it full / stack stuff on top of it then only 1x, with the argumentation that the ship is not in crates and not rectangular itself. It doesn't use its ...

You can find more info in the section Starship Travel in chapter 4 Systems: All transit time is divided by the rating of the ship's spike drive. A drive-1 rated ship would make the course in the base time, while a drive-2 rated ship would require half the time [...] and A drive cannot drill more hexes in a single jump than the rating of the drive. ...

If multiple animals pull the same vehicle, they can add their ...

Sticking to the default ships included in Pathfinder, there really no great fits, but there are a few that should serve your purpose. After removing the ones which need large dedicated crews, we are left with just three to consider. The Rowboat: You only need 1 person to crew it, but a single one will only fit 4 medium sized creatures maximum. ...

Most ship types aren't exactly fixed size, most are categorized by sail rigging. Build a larger ship, have more sail and storage, need more crew. But it's still the same type of ship. So for example saying a sloop will need 4 people and cost 3000 gp will be a very stereotypical simplification. There will be smaller and larger sloops. A lot of ships can be ...
