    The Roahks 7m Skyship is like a sailing ship of long past, except it comes complete with masts extending from the deck, flanks, and ventral hull. Direction and vertical stability are maintained by the vertical sails, while the flank sails are responsible for altitude control and gliding. An ultra-light alloy composed of terenthium and desh make up the double hull. A synthetic, extremely lighter than air gas, heglum fills this hull void. Challenging to control and primitive, these vehicles are a rarity in the Galaxy at large. Most are owned by cruiseship captains who earn their incomes by providing day-long trips for tourists, since there is no other practical or commercial use for these craft. Nevertheless, skysailers are extremely dedicated to their profession and ship. In the event where the winds die down, the repulsorlift engines are activated while the Skyship waits for them to pick up again. The 7m was on the market at least shortly after the Battle of Yavin.
