Do what I did - get a battle dolphin(The Narwhal variation - piercing ram).
Kit it out with rudder of propulsion, sails of speed, figurehead of prtection,
 etc.
have it topped out.
Strengthrn the hull.
Buy as many weapons(dual mount ballistae, light catapult, etc) as you can
crew/afford.

The battle dolphin is a 70 tonner, with shuttle. This gives lot's of air
for weapon crew and marines.

Ok, so it is a bit munchkinous, but you wanted to be able to hold your
own in combat, and this ship will take out any published ship (except the
Spelljammer, naturlly!).

It cost me 120 000 GP (roughly, using War Captains Guide).
And the shuttle is useful if you don't want to alarm the natives!
