It’s a bit tough to find ships that can play a hybrid role that are underrated in that capacity, but I think these three fit the bill well enough.
The Gallows is one of the best gunships in the game, but also sports a big cargo hold. She’s got the 3 basic generic crew abilities.
The Joya del Sol is one of the best gold runners in the game, but also one of the largest. Her cannons could use improvement, but she’s got a bunch of them along with a boarding bonus. Her crew complement leaves her with 6 cargo spaces open, with the potential for 6S speed. Also with the 3 basic generic crew abilities, she’ll be a force either way.
The Espada is just a fun ship in general, but doesn’t really fit into a specific mold. Zuan’s bonus will hopefully be a surprise to your opponent, making her guns 2L-2S-3S-4S. She can grab some gold, raid enemy gold runners without being pinned, and maybe even steal some loot from enemy HI’s.
Not the most practical of fleets, but a fun idea of “surprise hybrids” I randomly came up with.
