- "A seaworthy fleet keeps the economy afloat."
- —Bretonnian saying.
Trade Vessels are rugged, mercantile ships utilised by the Bretonnian Navy.
The sea merchants who operate off Bretonnia’s shores constantly need tougher, more manoeuvrable ships. The rapidly changing currents off the coast, extreme gales that blow in from the Great Ocean to the west, pirates, and – not to forget – the sea-monsters who infest its waters are notoriously dangerous to navigate. Even the most experienced sailors find it difficult to avoid a shipwreck if they find themselves in an unfamiliar waters. These difficulties can sometimes hamper trade, since a lot of goods flowing in and out of Bretonnian ports use the congested, land-hugging ship-routes.
