Starfield: All Ship Vendor Locations

Want to get some specific ship but don't know where to find it? Worry not; I have you covered with the locations of all the best ship vendors in Starfield.

Starfield will offer you a vast galaxy and many systems to discover. You can visit different planets, but you will need the best ships to get to these places. You can find some of the best ship vendors in Starfield at different locations if you explore other systems and the planets within them.

Once you spot the NPC ship vendor, who will mostly be a ship services technician, you can interact with him. This way, you can view all the ship’s options priced at these locations. You can easily purchase the ships from here and continue your journey in Starfield if you have the required amount.

In many cases, you may experience some difficulty finding these ship vendors, so worry not, as I will address all the locations where you can find these best ship vendors in this Starfield guide.

How to restock Ship Vendors stock in Starfield?

This a normal occurrence when Ship vendors in Starfield run out of their stocks at regular basis. There is nothing to worry about. This is game mechanic, and you can always refresh your favorite vendor’s inventory with full stock by resting a bit. You need to rest for at least 48 hours for the Ship Vendors to restock everything once more. You can rest via

  • Sitting on a chair
  • Sleeping in a bed

The best way is to travel to Venus planet in the Sol star system and rest there for just one hour (as 1 hour on Venus = 100 galactic hours) to effectively reset the inventory of every single Ship Vendor in Starfield.

What to do when a Ship Vendor is missing in Starfield?

There is a well-known bug in Starfield where Ship Vendors go missing. This happens mostly with New Atlantis’ ship vendor and there is no proper explanation yet. Some of my theories on these disappearances are.

  • A bug within the game
  • Wrong spawn location for the ship vendors
  • Stealing too much from a vendor
  • Hurting a vendor

While there is no concrete proof for the mysterious disappearance of Ship Vendors in Starfield, there are reports of people finding some vendors wandering where they shouldn’t be. You can restart the game or load a previous save to try and fix the problem. However, only Bethesda can acknowledge and fix this issue with updates.
