This isn't planned at the time being. The boat will automatically go once it's completed, but until then, you'll have to wait for its departure. Maybe we'll change it at one point, but for now: No, this is intended as is.

That is a link to a nice, comprehensive post by Nafaru regarding this issue and the plan with the "greenhouse to ship to horse area" cycle. Everything related to the Island works well for more established players. I think that was the GGS goal - to keep higher level players interested in the game once they maxxed out their main farms. It also provides some fun for lower level players. Unfortunately, we are accustomed to more easily attainable goals. I agree that it would be encouraging to offer concessions, and I personally would encourage lower level players to focus on their main farms until at least level 50, and wait to play the Island later. It will be back.
However, if you look at the ship as a bonus that you get a couple times a day, and a bigger bonus if you can send it full - right away - so you get in an extra shipment, it's not a bad deal.
I am not a heavy gold user, but have been playing the game for a good while now. It has been fun for me to see the changes. I do see more bonuses and incentives for gold use, but I understand that profit is the GGS goal, as they are a business. Some of the last prizes for the Island were unattainable without gold use. It was still possible to finish the island without gold though. And, it is still possible to send the ship without greenhouse goods - just not right away - for most everyone.
This whole game is all about balance. I love the strategies. Enjoy the game for the challenges it brings and the advancements and achievements you have made.
This thread was well done, Kamilcom. You had a valid concern and offered a solution. The moderators responded quickly. It's good to have an answer right away, even if it's not what was in your proposal. I would encourage you to continue to bring up suggestions for improvements and advice, and to read the forums regularly. That's how we all learn and attain more insight with this game.

...First you should make yr main farm strong and stable enough to make a lot of money; only then one should purchase the gourmet-farm, making this one as strong as the main farm and only then purchase the flower-farm, a.s.o.
Look at the theme-events, they are there to teach you that for every level there is an event and you should not play an event before you reached that level and/or do have build up enough skills, farm dollars or goods for it. Otherwise you will jeopardize your 3 permanent farms, which are the most important features carrying everything else in the game!
f.i. I never ever started the Farm Specialist degree of a theme-event, before I was sure I could do it.
This last big event (which is clearly a chain of smaller events all linked together) is obviously mend for the highest level players, who do have so many millions that they can afford playing it. We have all been warned in time before it started, once you read the teasers well, one could have known what to expect.
The lower levels should just have some patience until they reach the moment they can easily play this big event, without jeopardizing their other 3 farms and without bleeding to much farm dollars. They should remember that all the high level players once started and once have been on their level, played this game for over a year now, without the island event, so they had (and took!) the time to build up their farms strong and stable. The island event (and all following links in the chain) is there for them: the highest levels.
If all the challenges would be taken out, just to make things easy for some players - this would take out the very backbone of the whole game!
I do understand how easily one can be lured into playing a new exciting event, and how difficult it is to be patience, and how tempting it is to try out the new updates ….
But: then again: this is the whole strategy of the game: being patient and doing the game step by step, think and rethink every step, check and double check every movement, plan ahead (even if this means you decide not to play an event yet – and this may turn out to be your best decision ever!).
Once you will all be able to play the island event and all sequals, once you will all reach that level; just be patient and try to build up your 3 permanent farms as strong as possible until you do!
