I'm looking for a game during the time when Ships of the Line were the grandest ships on the seas. Of course, recommend some games and I'll add them to the poll later

East India Company is the best for just trading, and the expansion packs provide an interesting twist to your typical ship trading game. Sid Meier's Pirates is fun for it's arcadey combat and weird minigames. I wouldn't say it's good for the trading aspect.

always enjoyed Uncharted Waters and its sequel, New Horizons for sailing and trading.
