A grand wooden ship floats upon the calm sea, skull flag flying and scouts in the bird’s nest searching for potential victim ships on the horizon. The pirate ship strikes fear in the hearts of all who see her, and many ships steer clear of them. When people call up an image of a pirate ship, a wooden vessel flying the ominous jolly roger symbol on its flag is the most common. Pirates of the modern day, however, are completely different from their historical predecessors, and ride in speedboats. This old fashioned ship is a symbol of romanticism and adventure on the high seas at its finest.
The rarity of pirate ships for sale is extremely high. While many models like these for sale are common, life size ships are not; the real versions are more commonly in the care of collectors and museums. Pirate ships are charming pieces that inspire the onlooker to dream of swashbuckling journeys in search of great treasure. Children and the young of heart especially find pirate vessels enticing. Many will appreciate these kinds of ships for their outstanding historical accuracy and build. Names for pirate ships for sale vary from the strange to the beautiful to the obscure, and some take names from historical ships long sunk or lost.
While the typical flags of pirate ships for sale are the skull and crossbones of the jolly roger, many fly differing flags. With their starched three sails, the ships usually chosen by these salty pirates were some form of schooner. Pirate ships of the schooner type are fast, agile, and usually crafted from hard, treated types of wood. Schooners were utilized for supply carrying as well as battles by both the navy and scoundrels. Until the conception of the steam engine, schooners were, without a doubt, occupying the seas in great number. With their immense speed, steam engine powered boats soon overtook the schooner as the favorite vessel of pirates.
Pirates were given little choice but to have their ships repaired in port towns with less of a military presence, and could rarely pay the cost of repair. This made the state of pirate ships usually in some sort of disrepair, and long term damage to the hull or other parts was unmistakable and often the only indicator a ship belonged to pirates if the flag was down. While most pirate vessels for sale, especially models, do not keep or recreate these injuries, the buyer should keep in mind that authentic ones were prone to have dents and other blemishes. A particular area of interest on a pirate ship is the crow’s nest. Squalls, approaching ships, and changes in weather could all be accurately observed from the wooden crow’s nest by the lookout. Pirate boats for sale are well built and full of charm.

Kids Yellow Submarine with Marine Life – Under the Sea
The legendary sea monster was horrifying according to stories it was a huge, many armed, creature could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship’s main mast. A Kraken would attack a ship, wrap their arms around the hull and capsize it. The crew would drown or be eaten. What is amazing about the Kraken stories is that there is evidence that these creatures exist.
The early evidence about Kraken, from Norway in the twelfth century, refer to a creature the size of an island. In 1752, when the Bishop of Bergen et al wrote his The Natural History of Norway he described the Kraken as a “floating island” one and a half miles across. The Bishop of Bergan noted “It seems these are the creature’s arms, and, it is said, if they were to lay hold of the largest man-of-war, they would pull it down to the bottom.” As time past Kraken stories bring the creature down to a smaller, but still monstrous, size.
