Type 30 Space Yacht

A high-speed transport starship designed and built by Ketsurui Fleet Yards in YE 30. It is the fastest civilian craft on the market.

About the Type 30 Space Yacht

The unique thing about the yacht is it's a civilian ship with access to some of the best military speed tech. It's faster than any other civilian ship and exceeds the normal speed standards, making it perfect for transporting diplomats.

Key Features



The yacht was designed by Ketsurui Fleet Yards with dignitaries (like members of the Senate of Yamatai and the Empress of Yamatai) in mind, during the International Relations Conference of YE 30. Freshly built models were given to ranking members of the Motoyoshi Clan and Ketsurui Clan as gifts, where they became beloved transport vehicles for those who preferred not to travel on military warships.
