Fishing Boats are civilan vessels used for fishing for Food and can also whale for unlimited amount of Coin in Age of Empires III. Fishing Boats can be built immediately in the Dock at the beginning of the game for a price of 100 Wood .
Unlike previous series, Fishing Boats cannot be upgraded in this game, and cannot build Fish Traps, which featured previously in Age of Empires II. It is similar to the Fishing Boat in the first Age of Empires game, though, it has much higher hit points. It can also garrison units inside it (by the use of the garrison button, not by just right clicking it).
Although it has no offensive or defensive capabilities whatsoever, it can be garrisoned inside the Dock which can deal damage to enemies within its range.
