The Swallow has the most cargo capacity out of all the ships unlocked at Level 1, and while its armament leaves something to be desired, it provides the same speed as a Sparrow while being slightly more durable than a Lark. The four cargo it can hold allows for a significant jump in profit from the one cargo offered by the Minnow and Goldfish, or the two cargo offered by the starter Sparrow.
Named after the Swallow family of birds.
The Swallow is only one of two ships which can only mount Size 2 Cannons, alongside the Lark.
Swallows are less of a common sight following the introduction of the starter Sparrow.
