Ships in AOE4

When i saw the ships in AOE4, they really reminded me of AOE2. Which is not terrible, but kind of lacks creativity.
I would love to see ships having a reasonable size like in AOE3 and be mountable:

The AOE3 naval battles looked awesome, but the issue was usually the map size. The size of the map did not match the ship size.
This would be the best possible naval option, but would need absolutely HUGE water maps:

BTW, look at these graphics, they are not cartoony and still very readable. I can clearly see the units on the ship have a sword without making them look oversized.
Thank you.
