Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... The Raider is perfect for the aspiring Hallengard warrior. Also good for ab workouts. Has no sails. Requires at least 2 rowers to row effectively.


The Raider is one of the few paddle-based ships in the game. The raider requires a crew of well-coordinated paddlers to move at an optimum speed in any direction, regardless of the wind direction. With a full crew, the raider is the fastest ship in any direction with the highest maneuverability. The raiders crew requirement also makes it an excellent boarding ship, and combined with its decent cargo storage and long-range cannons chaser cannons, it is ideally used for quick cargo raids. Similarly to other paddle boats, due to its fast turn speed and requirement for coordination it can spin out of control if the paddlers are not careful enough with their coordination.

With a skilled crew it can prove to be a very effective ship.
