General Description

The Lynx is one of the Smallest ships in game with only 8 guns, she does however have a larger compliment than the cutter making her better for boarding than the cutter.


The Lynx is a lightly armed ship and can only carry 6pd cannons or 12pd carronades.

Deck Cannon Count Cannon Size Carronade Size
Weather Deck 8 6pd 12pd



The Lynx is a fore and aft rigged ship which makes her good for sailing close-hauled and beam reach, but she is not as fast when running with the wind. Her very light armament compared to the starting ship means that the lynx very rarely sees use.

This is the Sailing Profile of the Lynx. It is clear that she is a fast and forgiving ship to sail, as the speed never really drops below 0.5, other than when directly approaching the wind. What's more it is a strong sailer both on a beam reach and close-hauled. Although make sure to note that the Lynx, like all fore-and-aft rigged vessels, performs poorly with the wind in her back and for this reason should endeavour to chase and escape on different points of the wind.
