Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... The Demeter is the Purshovian Navy's freighter of choice, often used as a collier to supply their fleets.

The Demeter is a massive mercantile ship of Purshovian origin, with the highest cargo capacity of any player-obtainable ship. Its strong hull and quick engine makes it very difficult to catch and take down, making it an effective high-capacity ship even in high threat environments, however this comes at the expense of having an extremely poor armament. Armed with only a pair of Medium Cannons on each side and a Medium Turret on the stern, the Demeter is reliant on using its engine and stern turret to keep away from threats rather than combating them directly.

Trivia

  • The Demeter alongside the Ares was added on May 5th, 2022 and was buildable until May 23rd, 2022.
  • The Demeter was buildable as a promotion for the Wessel's Exotic Wares community auction.
  • The Demeter is the second player-obtainable Purshovian ship after the Poseidon.
  • The Demeter is the only wooden sailship to be able to hold turrets.
