Whydah Gally 1715 pirate ship

Now you can get this beautiful Whydah Gally 1715 pirate ship for your pirate ship collection or home decor. Our master craftsmen handcraft this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plans. We selected finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use a plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship.

You can find many details of the model such as copper hull, complex rigging with hundreds of blocks and deadeyes, authentic scale lifeboats, metal cannons and anchors, rudder chains. Furthermore, we applied multi-layered paint to match the color of the real ship.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This pirate ship model is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.

Whydah was the flagship of a fleet that included 5 ships: Marianne, Mary Anne, Anne, and Fisher. She was originally built as a passenger, cargo, and a slave ship for the Atlantic slave trade. She was a 3-masts, fully rigged galley ship. Her weight is 300 tons and is 110 ft long. With sail and oar propulsion, Whydah Gally can speed at 13 knots.

She began a new role in the Golden Age of Piracy on her second voyage of the triangle trade. When pirate Captain “Black Sam” Bellamy captured Whydah he refitted as his flagship. Two months later, on April 1717, the ship ran aground and capsized during a strong gale force storm off of Cape Cod, taking Bellamy, 143 of his crew, and over 4.5 short tons (4.1 tonnes) of gold and silver with it, leaving two survivors behind to tell its tale.
