The Marlin is a vessel built for mercantile purposes that sports a formidable armament, allowing her to comfortably defend against attackers provided she has a crew to man the guns. Despite her impressive firepower, her hull is fairly weak. Like the Beaver or Pheasant, the Marlin is a common sight for players who trade and is a staple trade ship. The ships' cargo capacity is very good as well as its' speed making it a solid trade ship. One can use the Marlin until you get enough for an Atlas which is an upgrade in cargo hold but a downgrade in speed.
- The Marlin and the Orca share a hull, however, the Marlin's sail type gives it a crosswind advantage.
- The Marlin is referenced to as the "Dolphin" in its decal name.
