Redd Treasure Trawler Boat - Where To Find

How Often Does Redd Visit You?


Starting with the free April update, Redd will begin to visit your island in the same way that other special villagers such as Label & Kicks do. Although we think ultimately his spawn is random, you can probably expect to see Redd once every 2 weeks or so. Check your minimap to see if his Treasure Trawler appears or not! There doesn't appear to be a specific time frame for his visits.

Shop In The North Part Of Your Island

Redd will wander your island, but once you've met the conditions listed above, he will also appear in his Treasure Trawler. This boat is visible on the minimap & lies in the north part of your island. You'll need the Ladder to reach it!

Purchase Works Of Art

Redd shop

In Redd's suspiciously dimly-lit shop, you'll be able to purchase artworks of various levels of authenticity. However, you are limited to buying one item per day! And, unsurprisingly, there may be fakes included in the items you purchase. It's necessary to compare the work to the real image to determine if it's a fake or not.

Check Out A List Of Artworks You Can Get Here!

Trade With People Online

Redd's shop will have 4 works of art available, of which you can only buy one! So why not share your art with other people online! You might even get new pieces by visiting others' islands!

Haven’t seen him for three weeks now! What’s going on is there a bug in here or is this where things are?

Blathers mentioned art on a saturday and the next day was a fireworks day. He did appear but only to sell from redd's raffle. Will he appear tomorrow selling art?

I haven't seen him for three weeks. It's glitch or something?

I got the art addition to the museum, but I didn't know you had to find and talk to him again. I really hope I didn't mess up getting him :/
