Default 200-ton yacht/light diplomatic courier

(1e, replaces the yacht in the core book for my pocket empires campaign. More suitable than the official version in frontier regions in standard campaigns)

Used both by nobles and diplomats, the 200-ton yacht is used for recreation and minor diplomatic missions. This ship has minimal protections against hostile forces. Some ships have a library instead of an office (briefing room). Some yachts have passed into the commercial sector as light passenger liners. In these cases, the G/carrier and ATRV are frequently omitted and their storage space is used for additional cargo (3.9 tons and 1.1 tons respectively). The ship's boat is normally outfitted with 11 passenger couches, leaving 8.4 tons of cargo space.

The yacht has maneuver drive-B, jump drive-B and power plant-B, giving Jump-2 and 2G acceleration. 48 tons of fuel supports the power plant for 4 weeks and one Jump-2. A Model 2 computer and basic civilian electronics are located in the bridge. There are 14 staterooms, with two combined into a suite. An office (briefing room) is also provided. One ton of luxuries is included. The ship has two hardpoints, with two single beam laser turrets. A 30-ton ship's boat , an unarmed G/carrier and an All-Terrain Recreational Vehicle (the latter two in full hangers) are carried for general duties. Cargo capacity is 10 tons. The ship is streamlined and has armor 2.

Crew consists of a Pilot, navigator, medic, engineer, and 2 stewards/gunners. If additional crew are carried, double-bunkING is required. A noble/diplomat and up to six guests/staff are also carried. The ship costs MCr 84.6 with small craft.

Note: The G/carrier and ATRV are in Supplement 6. While the TL 10 G/carrier only lacks the Plasma A gun and mount , the ATRV is the All Terrain Assault Vehicle without armament and with the internal combustion engine replaced with a hydrogen fuel cell.
A generous and sadistic GM,
