Container Ship (Civilian Watercraft)

The container ship is a common cargo watercraft on high population worlds. Long distance transportation of cargo by water is slow, but is also usually fairly inexpensive. On planets with a high volume of offworld trade, container ships are frequently rigged to carry Imperial Standard containers. The vessel shown below will accommodate up to 570 IS 4 ton containers.
