Is it possible to "win" a ship through the Snowflake event?

I am not an inexperienced player. I ask this question in sincerity. I have 27 tier 10 ships, and in speaking with several clan members who have a similar number of T10 ships, none of us, not one person, has received a ship as a reward from a santa crate awarded via the snowflake event. 

Now, I do not know what the odds of a ship dropping are, but between myself and my clan mates in the discussion, we account for more than 120 Tier 10 snowflake crates opened, without a single ship being received. 

So my question is, has anyone received a ship from a snowflake crate?

p.s I won't even go into how incredibly frustrating and disappointing virtually every aspect of the Christmas event is this year. How anyone at WG could conclude that their veteran players would rather be rewarded for their loyalty with 4 Frosty fur camos instead of 75 steel is beyond me.

I popped open 19 (freebies) but no luck here. Huge amount of command xp flags (about 400) and a bit of fxp and camo. Honestly don't spend cash on boxes expecting ships and don't spend cash on boxes unless you have a whole lot of disposable income.

They are the cheapest possible version of the crates, they are smidge..a tiny smidge, above the normal free crates.  A premium ship dropping out of those has always been like hitting the lottery.

SO, the short answer is Yes. This usually comes down to luck; I remember pulling a good ship out of a Santa Crate a couple of years back (Belfast, I think?)

However, I wanted to give it a go and indulge my impulses and curiosity a little bit this holiday, and spend some free Doubloons I'd received from a combination of Supercontainers and the free Santa containers on buying the Santa's Mega Gifts.

Here was what I observed from a fairly small sample, as I ran out of doubloons afterwards:

-3 instances of 2,000 doubloons each, allowing me to buy more Mega Gift Crates
-1 Instance of a Ship, the HuangeMeHe
-2 Instances of FLags
-1 Instance of Camo

I started with 2,700 Doubloons and bough a total of 7 Santa's Mega Gifts with those and the doubloons I got from the Crates.

I got a huange out of one 

Two of my clanmates also pulled one, as well as me. Conspiracy time?

19 freebies, zero ships.

I wasn't really expecting any out of the base Santa crates, anyway.

I got Marblehead Lima and of course I already had the Marblehead, why they deemed it necessary to put that in the line up I just can't figure.

I got the f'n Genova back in a Santa Crate. Sold the first one I was actually foolish enough to buy.

If you sell it again, you might get it out of another crate in the future.  Don't sell premium ships.

30x T10 snowflakes + 4x free one, not a single ship.

 

Yes, i supposed it is "possible" as someone reported they did, but it is not probable for the majority of the players.  Like hitting jackpot in slot machines at the casino, the chance is very slim.

Possible? Yes. I managed to get West Virginia from one of my ten crates. Probable? Eh... Not really.
