"Unknown any Rebel privateer vessel Martinette. Suspect ruse — pirates or Imperial spies."
―Captain Ixsthmus[src]

The Martinette was a Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1300 light freighter, with customized modifications. It was used by pirate Captain Jayhawk and his crew.


Soon after the Battle of Yavin, pirate Captain Jayhawk used the Martinette in attacks to other light freighters in the Fakir sector. He pretended to be a privateer working for the Alliance to Restore the Republic. With this charade, Jayhawk boarded several ship, stealing the cargo and sometimes the ship itself, leaving the victim crew stranded.

In 1 ABY, the Martinette attempted to attack the modified yacht Long Shot—which was really a ship of the Rebel Alliance. The Long Shot dealt with the pirates.

Layout and modificationsEdit

The Martinette had several customizations, including improved, heavier shields and better engines for increased speed.
