Starship question

Alright so I'm curious, for a mercenary platoon, just how customizable are Starships?

I've been told Ships are customizable based on user's tastes provided they are not in any way Warp or Xeno influenced.

I have also been told they are purely STC ships nothing more, nothing less, no customization unless you want to find an Ork Mek or wayward shipwright.

Our party was looking to acquire a small ship that was void capable.

had anywhere between 2-4 Autocannon's mounted on it
enough crew space for 8 people

that's about it, very basics to keep a mercenary party able to fly in system, obviously would need to hitch a ride with a Rogue Trader or someone if we want to leave system.

I was just thinking non-military would be able to have their ships more varied, but most "official" Imperial ships are STC with a modification here and there depending on what was available in resources and time.

the kind of ship I was imagining was like thunderhawk size, maybe a little larger(which I'm almost sure there are plenty of vessels as such)
See less See more
and could anyone possible give a guess on how much it would cost for Mercenaries to obtain?
Guess I'll just guesstimate it then, based on other universe's lore.
Tis why i said, I'll base it off of other universe's Lore(I want a Thunderhawk sized ship, so, closest thing would be a YT-2400 or something from Star Wars)

at least I know I'm right in customization.
