Characteristics

The Indiaman is a sluggish vessel due to her size, however her speed is not to be underestimated as she is capable of making a respectable 11.60kn, which is .30kn slower than Le Gros Ventre.

Here is the Sailing Profile for the Indiaman; you will note that she performs decently with the wind anywhere abaft her beam, but still displays a stronger preference for a broad reach compared to the more nimble trading ship Le Gros Ventre. Because she behaves largely like most of the other ship-rigged vessels, her low speed becomes an even more serious issue. For this reason a merchant aboard the Indiaman should either restrict their traveling to safe waters or only sail with an escort. Her low speed and maneuverability present real danger despite her theoretical potential for defence.

History

The Indiaman is based on a drawing from af Chapman.
