This achievement is for the purchase of your first additional ship. This doesn't unlock when you are gifted your second vessel during the tutorial phase, so you're going to want to start stock piling some cash.

Your best bet is to set up a trade route on a profit run and keep a close eye on it's profitability per day. Running the convoy along a series of closely located cities is the best option here as your captain will be able to automatically buy low and sell high without the demand changing between ports (thereby damaging your profitability).

ONLY buy your second ship when your bank balance is a) comfortably above the purchase price and b) your income is sufficient enough to support the upkeep of an additional vessel (ESPECIALLY if this vessel is to run a break even/loss making supply/materials route).

The game is unforgiving and once you're in the red, it's very difficult and almost impossible to get out.
