pirate ship model

In the most expensive movie ever made to date ($410 million), only the Black Pearl is fully operational.   Tri-Coastal Marine designed three full size ships for Pirates of the Caribbean 2.

In the first movie, the Black Pearl was a steel barge with wooden structures built on top to resemble a real ship.  In addition, a soundstage set was used to achieve better control over fog machines. For the second and third movies, a floating sailing ship was actually built in the shipyards at Bayou La Batre in Alabama.

The 10' long model was made for Mr. Charlie Bailey who supervised the construction of the 3 massive ship models used in Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  Delivery was on Feb 14, 2012 in Novato, Calif.  The model exceeded Charlie Bailey's expectations.


Below is a picture of the world's largest Black Pearl model completed in September, 2017.  It is currently hung from a ceiling at a famous tourist attraction in Minnesota, USA.

"My name is Kathy xxxxx. A couple of years ago I purchased a model ship from you The Black Pearl. I was blown away by the exact and precise detail and care you put into the model. I am thoroughly pleased with this and I was planning on purchasing another model from you. I want the USS Constitution, the Special Edition. But on your website, it says this item is sold out. It says also that if you are interested in a sold out item, to email you. I was wondering if it is possible to purchase this item or place an order for a later date.

Also, I was considering ordering your Queen Anne's Revenge (historic model, not the one from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) and the Sloop William. These items do not have sold out next to them and I was curious if they were In stock or if they would take time to manufacture.

Every day I wake up and appreciate the model I have. I hope to do business with you again. Please contact me as soon as you can to answer my questions. Thank you very much."

"The Black Pearl is in the Caribbean and has made birth in Case Pilote.  Everything went well.  The model is splendid.  Thank you very much for the state of the art work.  Best Regards, Bruno"


Be aware of some cheap Black Pearl models flourishing out there.   They have:
- Wrong number of cannons
- Way too short bowsprit (for shipping convenience?) 
- Too bulky hull (short and thick)
- Wrong waterline (too tall upper part would send the ship upside down in a breeze)
- Wrong stern gallery
- No boats
- Dummy guns with no carriages
- Wrong steering structure
- No mechanism attached to the main mast that was used to raise the anchor
