Default Book 7 Reprint, Free Trader/Far Trader/Fat Trader Details Missing?

So I'm going through character generation per book 7 and one of my characters, a Free Trader captain, rolls the free trader ship. The only thing I can find mentioning it says the following: "Free Traders, Far Traders, and Fat Traders are described more fully later in this book."

I cannot find any further description anywhere in book 7.

Maybe I've just been looking at it so long that I am just missing it, I don't know. I guess for now I'll just go with what book 1 says for monthly payment details and use the variant specs supplement 7 has for the type A2.

I wasn't able to find any errata regarding the seeming omission, if someone has any idea I'd appreciate some input.

The A2 design is in Traders and Gunboats. It costs quite a bit more than the Free Trader, so I wouldn't use the same payment info.

That's what I was working from and I was going to use the A1 variant which is about MCr10 cheaper.

But the regular free trader from book 2 will probably suffice, coming in at about MCr20 cheaper I think it might be more desirably anyway. I just wish I knew what Merchant Prince was going to say about them.
