Built for utility, not speed, the Swallow is a typical small sailboat, capable of carrying five passengers and three cubic metres of cargo. No sensors or communications gear is installed; if
carried, these are usually personal models. Similar boats can be encountered on many worlds, even at higher tech levels
construction means that, with proper care, a Swallow can last for over a century.
