Can Legendary Ships be captured?

I can't be the only one who thought of this? having these monsters in your fleet would be epic. But I'm just not 100% sure if they can even be boarded, doing a bit of research it seems they can only be sunk to collect their rewards but I may have missed something. Anyone knows if it's possible to board any of them?

Legendary ships are only intended as an elite naval battle experience. This is why they can't be boarded. The only way to defeat them is to sink them via careful maneuvering and use of your weapons. Best to zig zag close behind and avoid their mortars and broadside cannons. Even the use of chasing cannons should be limited to the lower rear hull vs the masts, because it's pointless to try and incapacitate them for boarding.
