A galleon in Imperialism 2 is a multi-purpose ship requiring the "Convoying" technology and generally available not too many years after a game starts if you pursue that line of research with single-mindedness.

It has six holds and is stronger than the Fluyte, but if your enemies have started building Sloops you should build them too so as to protect your galleons better.

You can upgrade it to a Ship of the line, but that may be unwise because of lower capacity.

One reviewer said that the galleon was an extremely important asset and that you should build at least 20 of them.
