I bought a book full of paper craft boats that are intended for use in water. I'll double-check tonight to see if there is any info on what type of paper it is. Though I have a feeling it's just coated.
In the mean time I see no reason why a double-triple coated acrylic varnish covered sheet of cardstock would be water-resistant at least for a few sails. Longer if not completely submerged.
I think that the printer's ink is not water resistant.
My MechAttack pieces are coated with a transparent spray. I dropped (by mistake!) a pair of weapons in the fish bowl and, even if i needed 4-5 seconds before being able to pick them up they are not bent or showing any kind of damage. So, if i were you i'll try to print the ship, coating it while flat, build it and then coating again. I think it can resist for a lot of time in water.
Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You

Vermin King: That was a whole lot easier than expected. One click
