As Mohawk Chris I says this only counts from the treasury ships. They have a small icon that looks like a stack of gold coins next to their strength when you hover the coursor over them.

These ships are a bit rare and I don't think they spawn right at the beginning. I saw my first one after about 30 min into the pirate career. It had a strength of 120 and my fleet only had around 100 becuase I just fought a couple of trader ships. But it was not a big problem.

When you see a treasury fleet SAVE before you start the attack!

You have to do this fight manually. And I really don't like the manual fights. If you feel the same here is some help:

-you start with 3 ships, the enemy starts with 3 ships, I only managed to capture 1 enemy ship but this gave me 130.000 gold coins and this achievement
-you have different ammo for different purposes (shown in the top center of the screen):
(1) the first looks like a solid steel ball and mainly reduces the hearts of the enemy ships; I rarely used this one
(2) the second looks like two steel balls connected with a chain: these mainly reduce the white icon of the enemy ships, which are the sails; so these will slow the enemy ship down; I always start with this ammo, maybe 3-4 hits or more
(3) the third looks like a bunch of small bullets; these mainly reduce the people on the other ship; this is important so you can successfully capture the enemy ship; if they have more people on their ship and you try to capture them, they will capture YOU and you lose your ship; I used this ammo after I slowed the ship down enough
(4) capture the enemy ship (choose with X); when the enemy ship is slowed down and their crew is reduced load this up and stay in the circle arond the enemy ship

In a nutshell:
-you only need to capture 1 enemy ship, but it must be from a treasure fleet
-use 2nd and 3rd ammo to weaken the ship
-capture the ship
-destroy the other 2 ships or capture them if you can
-achievement unlocks when you win the fight
