What are ship upgrades?
If you want to replace your existing boat instead of buying a new one, you "only" pay the difference. Upgrades are basically possible from any ship to any more expensive ship. The special thing is that the insurance (see below) is transferred to the new ship. If the ship was part of a package tour, the remaining conditions of the package tour continue to apply.

What are hangars?
Hangars are separate small areas where you can spawn your ships. They are pretty but have no other function and are not (currently) attached to the back.

Of course, the time will not run out until the start.
