Main article: Merchant marine (Imp1)

Your Merchant Marine in Imperialism is your merchant ships, which are required for carriage of all the items you buy or sell (except those you sell to another Great Power).

You build the ships in the shipyard but you never see them. Sometimes you see which sea they are in when an enemy intercepts them. They may be captured or sunk; having a warship on escort duty may protect them.

The number of available holds appears under a ship icon at the right of the page when you are giving trade orders or when you are considering whether to buy items.

Imperialism 2

Merchant marine is not present in (or the article has not been created for) Imperialism 2
