Summon Boat is a 1st level spell in the School of Water Magic.

The spell may only be cast on the Adventure Map and next to a shoreline.

In order to Summon Boat spell to work, there must be an unoccupied (free) tile to summon the boat.

Additionally, on basic level there must also be an unoccupied boat. At advanced and expert level, a boat will be created if there are no free boats to summon. Summoning a boat will make the closest unoccupied boat to disappear, which sometimes can lead to tactical choise to cast the spell.

It's not a bug, it's a feature

It should be noted, that there can only be 64 boats on a given map at the same time. This might cause the spell to fail at advanced or expert level.
