The Kestrel's reinforced bow allows her to be armed with a long-range mortar.
The Kestrel is the first mortar ship most players will have access to. Its ability to mount a Medium Mortar provides a long-range combat capability unavailable to the average merchant or pirate, however it is rarely seen in combat due to being outclassed by the Manta in speed, durability, and firepower.
- The Kestrel can be described as the "younger sister" of the Manta, as they have similar profiles, cannon layouts, and playstyles.
