I think we got quite different definition of word "good". For me it looks unfinished.

Way to go! :)
The color of hull is a bit surprising, but I like it.

I guess you know theres much work left, but I really love the left and right parts, the middle one still isn't as good as them. Why do you use a darker color for the middle part, it looks odd.

Here some inspiration for my favourite polish chainsawseller:

Does it necessarily have to be powered by wind?

I was rather implying a more... fantastic kind of propulsion.

yeah, lets add a huge balloon and make it fly ;D Oh! Wait, that would be a zeppelin (which is nice idea, and not so hard to make while we have an proper hull).

Mast and sails sounds reasonable. I also thought about dragon wing shaped sails. Time will show.

More like the "Navigator" is a magician that stands to the front of the ship and manipulates surrounding mana to propel the ship

And here I thought it could be pulled by a walrus, or a small army of tethered penguins like a sled dog team.

In the early years, the magicians controlled a dozen walruses and one lead penguin. Centuries past until a brilliant mind suggested that the 'middleman' be eliminated.

There is one simple solution, easy to pixelate: PADDLES. Vikings boats usually had paddles and sails.

Eh, I think there should be sails... but that mages should manipulate storm clouds to fill them.

That's the best option so far, at least as a starting base. I'd encourage more creative solutions in a second step.
