Pirates will think twice before attacking a fully-equipped Beaver
The Beaver is a popular trade ship thanks to its high cargo capacity, solid armament, and favorable speed. Thanks to its well-rounded capabilities, the Beaver is as effective at fending off would-be pirates as it is with transporting cargo, particularly thanks to its pair of stern cannons and fast downwind speed, able to keep pace with even fast pirate ships such as the Corsair. However, the speed is not enough to stay ahead of ships such as the Pheasant or Marauder, whose sails allow it to outrun the Beaver even at its fastest. The crosswind on the Beaver is also only decent at best, although this is only a minor drawback to what is otherwise an effective all-around ship.
- The Fox is a Beaver with an engine and a Size 2 Mortar on the bow at the expense of less cargo.
