The Galleon is a type of merchant vessel built for military use.
It’s basically a smaller version of a ship with a long, thin hull, and is primarily used to transport goods.
While the galleondas are typically used for small scale trade, they are also used for large-scale missions such as raiding convoys and transporting large amounts of cargo.
The galleona is also known as the “ship of the ocean.”
