To ambush a trader you must make it out of the tutorial. Once you have gotten to the point where you can designate ships as Combat Ships in your convoy, you can attack trader vessels.

A trader vessel will be a wooden hull with white sails. The ships with red sails are not trader vessels.

The easy way to get this is to leave Port Royale and sit just outside of the town. Ships will eventually approach the town (Speed things up by hitting the Left Trigger to make the number below the hourglass in the top left say x1, then hold the Left Bumper for x10 speed).

When they approach, hover your cursor over them and hit B. As soon as the info pane comes up giving you the battle's stats and asking if you want to manually attack or use an automated attack, your achievement will pop.
