One of my favorite ships in game is...

Recommended Posts

This one (an underestimated one) :

Why ?

  • Vey nice looking with a beautiful paint scheme, similar to that of La Renommée or L'Hermione.
  • Easy to get, fun to sail (ok, maybe not the best 7th-rate, but...)
  • She makes me think of the last ship French privateer Surcouf armed, Le Renard that defeated HMS Alphea while being the underdog.  Here are some views of her modern replica :

 

And you, what is (one of) your favorite ship in game and why ?

White paint scheme Bellona is the defacto flag ship for the elite few

While its just a Bellona as any other Bellona its white paint marks it as a perfect aggro... Enemies far and wide will rush out of port when news crosses their respective nation chat a that a rare sighting of the elusive white is spotted off the coast of some damned place...r0/o7

I have a hard time picking just one, so here are 4: 

Diana, one of my favorite frigates. Beautiful ship, handles nicely, and has proven to be quite capable:

Endymion, my all-time favorite frigate. Probably my favorite overall, if I could only pick one ship. Endymion has probably netted me more marks than any other ship I've sailed. The one in the screenshot below served me faithfully from June 2017 till January 2018, when she gave her last moments of flotation to get my crew aboard the ship we'd captured. May she find solace and rest beneath the waves.

Victory (this one has a paint applied), a very close second to the title of favorite first rate. She's agile and bouncy, with good firepower to boot (as good as L'Ocean after the carronade buff). Although often underestimated by enemies, Victory has proven time and again to be an effective ship in the right hands.

Santisima, my favorite first rate (but only a little bit more so than Victory). Santisima's firepower is unrivaled. With good handling characteristics and respectable toughness, Santisima is a tough ship to beat. Both of these Santisimas in the image have paints applied--front and center is my old pink Santisima, veteran of countless duels.

Some other ships I wanted to put on the list, but didn't because this post is long enough as it is:

Constitution -- (preferably with Sicily Paint) I used to dislike Constitution, but with the various changes over the years, I've grown to enjoy the firepower and thickness of Constitution. She suffers somewhat in speed and agility, compared to smaller frigates, but I think the other benefits make up for that.

Surprise -- formerly my favorite frigate. I still enjoy sailing her, but a 5/5 is required to be usable. I have to have two mast mods plus a ton of speed mods just to be able to fight ships my own class without losing a mast in 5 hits (the speed mods allow me to escape from everything that can demast me--which is still basically every frigate). Even still, Surprise is a fun ship to sail. Easily able to fight above her weight class, assuming you can keep your masts where they're supposed to be.

Bellona -- I've always liked Bellona. Good speed, firepower, and agility makes for a great SOL experience. 

Santa Cecilia -- Though I only enjoyed one for a short time (and a borrowed one with a conditional agreement not to leave port with it), it truly is a beautiful ship that was a joy to sail. Too bad you never see them out and about.

For me it is the SNOW. Such a capable small thing :) I loved being underestimated in this ship. Before Hercules there was the Snow, still very good ship after 6th rate overall buff. Fear the snow if you are in 1 vs 1.
