This will be the final achievement, as doing everything else will put you in the 300 kill range. You'll want the Abyss with maxed speed and damage. Defense won't matter for much.

Buying all the crewmen isn't strictly necessary, but you'll want to buy them, starting from the most expensive at the right end, to get the following perks. Upgrade them to max immediately.

SAIL
Full Speed - Increased speed.
High Spirits - Increased stats in sunny weather.

FIGUREHEAD
Instant Reload

HULL
Brute Force - Increased damage.
Canister Pro/Round Shot Pro - Increases the amount of rounds in each of those shots.

CANNON
Critical Strike - Guaranteed crit.

From here, go to Scorpion Reef, the second map. We're hunting the golden ships specifically; while it doesn't hurt to attack the red ships, they do take longer due to the necessity of breaking the first attack. With the exception of the very first boat in the pattern, use Critical Strike whenever possible to speed things up. Most ships are dealt with in one pattern:

Round shot (first option)
*If it exposed a weak spot, swivel guns
*Otherwise, canister shot (third option)

The exception are the red gunboats. Since these are so small, the best option is to use the canister shot, then the round shot or swivel guns.

The route to take in Tactical mode is as follows. This destroys 10 ships in roughly 3 minutes. The golden ships don't always appear in these spots; uncommonly, they will be on the map but not moving, or rarely, one will not spawn.

Northeast is a ship coming south. One well-placed round shot should destroy it.
Head west to the ship heading west.
Fast travel south to the other side of the island.
Head northeast to the ship here.
Head southwest to the ship cornering itself.
Fast travel east to the east side of the protected cove.
Head west into the cove, ship isn't moving.
Fast travel northwest into open sea, west-center of map.
Head south to intercept a ship.
Head west to the edge of the map to intercept another coming around an island.
Fast travel northeast to open sea, north-center.
Ship circling the fast travel point.
Head east/southeast to the ship coming southwest.
Fast travel southeast to the east edge of the map.
Head southeast to ship coming northwest.

Two final notes. First, there is no tracking for this achievement. Second, Bounty cannot be used for tracking. Later ships contribute more, so the longer you stay there, whether by choice or an achievement, the higher your bounty gets. There are reports of this achievement unlocking anywhere from 36m to 55m because of this.
