The ship was first seen in the episode, "Dragon Flower", when Johann sailed to Berk for the first time in the series. When the dragons were starting to get sick, they feared that one of the items they bought on the ship might be the culprit.
In "Breakneck Bog", Johann then took his ship through Breakneck Bog to make up for lost time. However, he had his ship taken from him by a pack of Smothering Smokebreath dragons. As the ship was carrying something important for Hiccup, he and his friends went to find him and eventually discovered that his ship had ended up in a tree. The ship held a small chest that contains Hiccup's long lost toy. Snotlout and the twins used the "fog monster" to scar Hiccup, Astrid and Fishlegs - while they were on the ship - and Snotlout had also found a golden necklace that he liked, but he was forced to give it up. The ship was later brought back to Berk for repairs. When Johann's ship was brought back Berk for repairs, Gobber claimed that the whole forest had to be cleared to fix it.
When ice hit Berk and froze the sea in the episode "Frozen", Hiccup and Toothless set out to bring Johann back to the safety of their village and discovered that his ship was frozen in the ice. When Hiccup returned Johann to his ship, he repaid him by giving him the squid ink he promised.
In "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", Dagur the Deranged tricked Johann into bringing Smothering Smokebreaths to Berk by giving him a pile of scrap metal. Johann's ship was later used to bring the dragons back to Breakneck Bog.
Three years later in "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 1", Dagur and his men escaped Outcast Island's prison and then they commandeered Johann's ship and sailed to the Ship Graveyard, to gain some of Johann's stored treasures.
When Johann and several other traders were sailing through the Straits of Baldur in "Dire Straits", they were attacked by a Submaripper that had been chained by the Dragon Hunters. Due to his experience, Johann managed to steer his ship to safety. The other traders however, were not as fortunate.
In "Dawn of Destruction", Johann came to visit Dragon's Edge to inform Hiccup that he was unable to obtain oil that is needed for the construction of a secret project. Johann then tells Hiccup can be found in the Isle of Thizzian.
By the end of "Searching for Oswald... and Chicken", Heather and Windshear visits Johann on his ship, and he tells them that he met a man in the Northern Markets who claimed that he has seen Heather's father, Oswald the Agreeable, alive.
During "In Plain Sight", Johann's ship is seen in flashbacks when Hiccup recounted the times when Johann got himself involved in precarious situations, right after latter revealed his true colors and his past attempts in getting rid of the Dragon Riders.
Johann's ship is used in Rise of Berk, as it sells collection items that cannot be gained from the card pack or sending Hiccup and Toothless. When winter hits Berk, the ship is also covered in snow. The items can be gained from trading wood, fish or paying with runes.
