The Serpent is a level 8 ship capable of a variety of roles. Her junk-rigged sails allow her to sail close to the wind.
Her ability to sail rather quickly crosswind allows for easy access to highly profitable sailing routes, which her moderate Cargo Capacity compliments even more. The Serpent is also fairly well-armed, carrying four Size 7 guns on each side, making her well-equipped for combat if necessary. Boarding a Serpent may prove difficult for most invaders, as her high sides can only be accessed from the water by use of a ladder on the side of the hull.
Serpents struggle with poor maneuverability and may have trouble fighting smaller, more maneuverable foes. Her high profile also makes her an easy target.
