    To complete this achievement you first need to have defeated all of the forts. There are 7 in all. Once you have unlocked a fort a man will be stood on the dock with an assassins contract symbol above his head. These missions are naval missions. If you highlight each fort on the map it will tell you how many contract missions there are, simply complete these missions to unlock the achievement. I did this in about 2 hours with relative ease without all the elite upgrade,

    This is also a good way to save up loot and coins as you can board most of the ships you are fighting with a bonus coming from the completed contract.

    PLEASE NOTE! The last contract is found in Serranilla in the South West and does not show up until all the others have been completed.

    If anyone is having trouble with this working despite restarting several times, you can find these boats in the Dry Tortuga section of the map sailing towards Havana

    Okay the guide by SweetChildOMine is brilliant and covers all the basics to get this achievement but I just wanted to add my own input for the final contract which is unlocked after completing all of the other naval contracts.

    Now overall this achievement is surprisingly easy to obtain but for the final mission I must advise strongly that you have the Jackdaw upgraded to a certain point. Mine has almost all of the armor, mortar and cannon upgrades. With a fully upgraded ram which helped alot.

    Now in the final mission you must protect a large (heavily damaged) pirate ship from 3 waves of enemy ships. Each attacking in groups of three, starting with gun boats (LOL) then we get the brigs or maybe they were schooners but they weren't much of an issue either. No the worst part was the Man O war in the final wave. It was the only ship that managed to damage me and it almost destroyed me at one point. So please have some decent upgrades before you go into the final mission.

    #1. Take out all forts (7 total).

    #2. Look for the fellow that offers the naval contracts and talk to him. Each fort has one, some have two contracts to give.

    #3. While you can start these at any time, it would be best to wait until you get some upgrades. If you playing this for quick achievements, go after it. If are in it to totally wipe the game, wait until much later when you have a few major or even epic upgrades. The last one, which you get when all others are done (Seranillas) can be a major doozy if you are unprepared.

    #4. As a bonus, you can help yourself with the upgrades by boarding the ships that you hit, which will only make you better.

    #5. Be careful not to drag in other ships into the fight that are not a part of the mission.

    #6. Some of the contracts require you turn over some loot (cloth, wood, rum). If you have those already in your ships inventory, you can turn those over immediately earning you to contract reward.
