It takes thousands of people working together to build a ship, a majority of the time several companies are involved in the creation of a ship. Ships are created in a shipyard, this is a docked area where vessels are built or repaired.

When the vessels are being built, they are assembled rather than made from one piece. Some companies are hired to take care of one aspect of the ship's build where as others are developing another. Eventually the ships are put together similar to a small scale model, after their completion they are moved on to another area for interior and exterior decoration.
