Once much of the map is explored, it gets a bit dull sailing back and forth. The pace would be much improved with a fast-travel mode for your ship.

Have you equipped your ship with all the goodies that speed it up?

I agree. They have a 'fast travel' mode in the city for locations you've already visited. It would be nice to extend that to islands.

No.  The whole point of the world map is exploration.  Just use fast mode.

The sheer amount of time one spends sailing around a mostly-empty sea is kind of absurd. Not sure why you want to do that.

Needs a fast load mode. That is all.

I suppose one good reason for not adding that is that you may be attacked by other ships at sea. If you actually guide your ship, you can choose whether to avoid this (and how) or not.

^This.   Fully upgrading one's ship can increase its overall speed by almost 100%.  (It's also a good money sink.)

loading screens for fast travel mode often take longer you ever notice that...

I was mostly thinking about late in the game where getting attacked at sea isn't really a thing anymore but I suppose you're right about before that point.
