Private Yachts and Pleasure Craft

Wealthy Colonials aspired to owning their own space craft. Most of these private ships were sub light only, little more then over sized shuttle craft.
Of those capable of Hyper Speed, some were modified Transports, others were modified shuttles (The larger model shuttles could be refitted, giving up cargo capacity, to allow limited Hyper Speed capacity.) Yachts of the super rich were custom built ships with powerful Hyper Speed drives.
