I'm sorry what? Just because it doesn't cater to your and some fraction of the playerbase's availability its "Dead content"? Get over yourself man, really. This game as a whole do not cater to people with limited time to play, but rather to the chunk of the players that can and do sink a serious amount of hours (or money). Any activity that generates silver requires investment. Making a ship to barter is in no way different from grinding and enhancing your gear so you can make more silver. This is yet another avenue for people to generate said silver and i see nothing wrong with it. It is not a busted RMT-enabling fest like SMH used to be in its peak. Your whole argument can be summarised as: "I don't like it, thus dead content."
