The Galley is the first naval unit available in Civilization IV. It has a cargo space of two and it is usually used to explore the coast. It cannot enter deep water and is the weakest naval unit in the game. It is replaced by the Galleon.

StrategyEdit

The earliest armed naval vessel, Galleys can transport 2 land units. They cannot enter ocean spaces.

Civilopedia EntryEdit

The galley was the first ship designed for war. Introduced by the Greeks, galleys were powered by banks of oars on each side, manned by well-trained oarsmen. These oarsmen were highly paid professionals or patriotic citizens, not slaves and prisoners as depicted in fiction. A huge, bronze "beak" mounted at the bow of the ship was used to ram and sink enemy ships. Because of its long, narrow hull, the galley was very unstable in all but the calmest waters, and as a consequence its crew rarely ventured out of sight of land for long periods of time, lest the ship be caught in a storm and sunk.
