1. HMS Hound
-Extremely capable. Hybrid potential. I can’t find a better ship at this price.
-Tough to beat the cargo, durability, and speed for the cost.
4. Honu Iki
-Surprised I don’t have her higher, but there are a bunch of solidly effective ships for this cost.
10. Bonny Kate
-Never liked this one, it has just bothered me for some reason. I suppose I underrate it but I find her very boring. Solid case to be made that she shouldn’t make the Top 10… hmmm.
Other Honorable Mentions not seen in thread yet:
-Trades any accuracy for speed, but these ships aren’t likely to be shooting much if at all.
-Direct downgrade of this Coeur, but still playable.
-Speed is great, and you can make her more dangerous with Kian Ng + Captain towing Armada .
