Ship And Boat Riddles

Here are a few riddles for kids where the answer can either be ship or boat.

These are therefore good for using with some of our other riddle themes like pirate, sailing and different modes of transport.

The first two of these rhyme, while the third is a What Am I? riddle. To use the final idea, your kid(s) should read the first line and guess the answer.

If they’re not correct, they should read the second line and guess again. Your children should keep going until they either get the right answer or run out of clues.

Ship And Boat Riddles For Kids

If you want to be a pirate
You will need this without fail
So that you can travel around
You need something you can sail


You will need this type of transport
To be able to leave a port
You can then float upon the water
And cast nets for fish to be caught


What Am I?

I have a deck but no backyard
I have a bow but no arrows
I have a wheel but I’m not a car
I have a beam but I’m not a light
I have a stern but I’m not serious
I have a crow’s nest but there are no birds
