The general theme in aom is that the arrow ships and indeed all ships are pretty much equal, not counting in myth techs. Longboat was a bit stri\onger than triereme, which made up for it with more range, kebenits were excellent for destroying fishing ships.
Looking at the chinese, this is also true, except for the junk, the arrow ship. It has a solid 40 more hp than the rest of the arrow ships, while costing the same and have no drawbacks as far as i can tell.
Now im not taking into account various god powers and economic differences between the civs, but this kinda looks broken, 40 more hp is quite alot. Two of the chinese gods also have a mythic tech for it in classical i think, giving it even more hp.

Well I think the thought process works like this (please note that does not mean things won't need rebalanced).

But Greek ship still has a range advantage over the junk. So chance to get in more shots.
Norse ship has an attack advantage.
Egyptians can dock spam like it is no one's business.
The Atlantean bireme is probably the worst off.

I think this is something that may need adjusted later on.

Triereme might have a bit more range, the junk ship still beats it convincingly. The longboat have a bit more damage, but it still loses as well. It pulls out on top if you get arctic winds upgrade, but then again, Junk doesnt need an upgrade to beat the normal longboat. And if it needs too, it has a classical upgrade that makes it superior yet again.
But yeah, some balancing is probably needed.

Things will be adjusted. There's lots of broken things with the Chinese right now. Wu Na as a whole being one of them.
