A boat with chest can be used for the transportation of players, mobs and items, or as fuel when smelting.
A boat with chest can be used as fuel in a furnace, it lasts 60 seconds, smelting up to 6 items.
The difference with regular boats and boats with chests is that boats with chests can only carry one entity compared to boats being able to carry two entities.
Boats with chests share most behaviors with boats.
The inventory of the boat with chest has the same amount of slots as a single chest. Its inventory can be accessed by sneaking and interacting on the boat with chest, interacting on the boat with chest while a player or entity is inside the boat[verify], or by opening the player's inventory whilst inside the boat. This means that the player cannot access armor or offhand slots without exiting the boat.
When a boat with chest moves above, underneath, or beside a hopper, its inventory is filled or drained accordingly. Due to the size of its hitbox, a boat with chest can be placed above up to 9 hoppers, allowing it to evenly split its items nine ways.
As with other chests, opening or breaking a boat with chest causes nearby piglin to attack the player.
