I could be totally be wrong but that I think is where thecountalucard is coming from.
The vast majority of the Realm's ships are galleys, because the vast majority of the Realm's maritime traffic remains within the confines of the relatively placid Inland Sea. The Realm also maintains blue-water sailing vessels for traversing the more tempestuous White Sea and Great Western Ocean.
