The M-class was a type of interplanetary luxury liner.
The designation seems to have been relatively common, and apparently applied to ships of several different types, though all of them were purpose-designed as passenger ships, as opposed to other liners which used converted freighter hulls.
Among ships known to have been designated as M-class were Lady of Mindor, a 310-meter, 600-passenger Lady-class ship from Shobquix Yards, and also the 500-meter-long Mon Calamari vessel Kuari Princess, which carried 3,500 tourists.

Behind the scenesEdit
The M-class designation is first used to describe the Lady of Mindor in Han Solo's Revenge. The Kuari Princess was described as an M'-Class luxury liner' in Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, First edition.
At one stage, it may have been intended to identify both ships as vessels of the same class, but current canon evidence defines them as very different designs. This implies that the M-class designation is simply a generic term for a range of luxury liners.
