The Fluyt is a moderately fast and powerful military ship that is able to garrison soldiers. It is also very resistant to ranged attacks from enemy units and building fire, making them effective in both combat and transportation. It can also be used to train military units on any coastline, making logistics more convenient.
The Dutch have a Home City Card available to them in the Fortress Age, which delivers three Fluyts. Combined with the card Admiral Tromp, which boosts the Fluyt's HP by 100%, they can form a strong navy.

"The Fluyt is a ship of Dutch design dating from the seventeenth century. They have a shallow draft and a large cargo hold, and can be handled by a very small crew. The Dutch imported relatively cheap wood and tried to mass produce as many parts of the ship as possible. Other nations commissioned their own Fluyts, and the Dutch innovations in ship construction paid off not only in cargo but in the hulls they sold to other countries.
Approximate weight: 300 tons. Length: 105 feet."
