About us

PirateCraft is a Pirate themed Minecraft survival server. We're a 8 year old tight-knit community that’s developed over the years into a wonderful family.

Our ethos for running PirateCraft is to have a permanent map that Never Resets!, builds will be kept and protected, you can disappear for 3 months and come back to carry on where you left off! We’ve had players come back after 5 years and continue where they left off!

The world doesn’t get stale, Land & abandoned claims are regenerated over time to keep it fresh and clean, players can request Claims and Land to be removed and regenerated by our Staff Team.

Staff act like police, they only intervene when asked, you are mostly left to make your own way in PirateCraft, be it Solo or an Empire. We have a rich History documented over the years on our Wiki

Getting Started

There are no hurdles to get started, spawn is small, you just need to leave it in any direction to get started. You spawn a deckhand on a shipwreck just off the coast, where has your crew gone? Gather resources and build yourself a home to survive. Do you Build your own Empire or Join an existing one? Maybe you fight as cut-throat solo Pirate laying down your own rules! We have an in-depth getting started guide on our website:
