From publisher blurb:
The purpose of the Xuan Wu line of leisure transports is to provide comfortable accommodations and a variety of entertainment facilities for about 50 passengers in a mid-sized ship. Aves Engineering originally developed the craft under military contract as an armored transport. After the war, the design was modified to cater to civilian clientele. A single Armadillo-class shuttle pod is carried, as are half a dozen life boats. The large cargo bay could easily be used as a hangar if desired, but is more often used exclusively for cargo (including the ubiquitous HMT containers) and luggage. The standard crew includes a dozen human personnel plus a cadre of robotic servitors.

The name Xuan Wu is taken from Chinese mythology where it is a northern constellation associated with winter and represented by a snake-entwined black tortoise. It was the turtle-like shape of the ship’s upper hull that inspired the name. Amenities include a gym, dance floor, and cinema as well as a spacious lounge and small arcade.
