This achievement is now grindable with the Forsaken Shores update. The achievement was nerfed in the Shrouded Spoils update on November 28th, 2018.

This achievement requires 50 banana crates to be delivered on contract before it expires. As of the Forsaken Shores update on September 28th, 2018 contracts including banana crates can only be found in message in a bottles, journal entries, AND random maps found in barrels scattered across the world including the outpost you originally spawn into. The cursed cannon ball update also increased the frequency of getting merchant crate voyages, finding random crates washed ashore, and raised the gold payout when turned in both on and off contract.

Because the Forsaken Shores update added MIBs into the barrels you can find on islands and outposts this achievement is now grindable via server hopping.

Steps:
1. Log into game and start a new closed ship
2. Scour all barrels at the outpost and collect all maps offered
3. If you don't get a merchant voyage log off and try again.
4. If you do get a merchant voyage with a banana crate, claim it from the merchant
5. Fill crate using loot on the outpost and default stock on boat
6. Deliver to destination outpost.
7. Scan new outpost for new maps, or log off and try again.

You can accelerate the process by having 2 to 4 players help server hopping. Once one person find a merchant crate map, invite the rest of the crew onto the boat and turn it in.
