Unable to purchase ship?

I have been playing for a while and have recently created a new account since I moved to Europe. I am on the US line and have been playing the Chester.  After researching everything on it and getting points, I decided to get the Sampson DD. I could research it but when I went to purchase it I cannot. 

 

I have more than enough doubloons but when I go to buy I don't get an actual buy button to finalize the sale. 

 

I have no idea why.

the sampson should be priced in credits, not doubloons

 

maybe no free port slot?

Yes. It adds 50 for a port slot and 50 for a captain. I have almost 200 doubloons. 

 

However, even when I select the FREE option it only gives me the CLOSE button, not purchase. 

 

I have already selected RESEARCH so I am not sure as to why I cannot purchase. I have not ever had this issue before.

You need to free some space...sell a ship you don't need

Port slot is 300 gold, even if there was a discount (there is none right now) it would be 150g. Similar for the 3 pt capt - it costs 25g not 50g.

 

So you'd need 325 gold - and it sounds like you simply don't have that much. Sell some ship (probably tier 1) to free up a port slot and you'll be able to buy another ship
