The famed ship of the infamous pirate Calico Jack, this delightful 7" pirate ship model is the perfect toy gift for any child.
They left Palos de la Frontera on August 3, 1492, stopping at the Canary Islands on August 12, 1492, and continued westward. She was captured by a pirate corsair when leaving the port of Cagliari and brought to Cape Pula, Sardinia. Handcrafted from 100% solid wood, with a metal nameplate, this miniature boat rests easily upon any desk or shelf, and adds a touch of genuine pirate decor to any room it graces.


While her pirate history is quite brief, leading up to her capture are the fascinating lives of John Rackham, later Calico Jack, and his diverse crew.
On August 22, 1720 the two, along with 10 other crew rowed out into Nassau harbor and bordered the Bahamian sloop The William. While the other pirates were drunk and cowardly, Bonny and Read fought for their freedom while cursing out their weak male counterparts, even firing upon and killing one of them.
Sailing through the Windward Passage, the renewed pirates escaped once again and began hunting the Caribbean.
Following the brief ordeal the pirate crew was seized and taken to Port Royal, Jamaica for trial. After one of his men accidentally ran the Santa Maria aground, Columbus returned on the Niña in early 1493. Eventually coming to be called Calico Jack, Rackham rose to fame as a pirate, attacking vessels throughout the Caribbean and building a small fleet. In mid-October, 1720 Calico Jack’s crew captured a large ship near Jamaica, leading Jamaican government to contact Captain John Barnet, tasking him with capturing the infamous pirate. Though Anne Bonny and Mary Read were granted stays in their execution, claiming to be pregnant at the time, Rackham and the others were convicted of piracy and sentenced to death on November 16, 1720.


While Calico Jack and his crew were sailing throughout the Caribbean, in 1718 England declared war on Spain, leading various English governors throughout the area to offer royal pardons, as well as letters of marquee, to many pirates.
Continuing along the Jamaican coast, Rackham took The William to the western-most tip of the island where they ran across a small ship of fisherman and turtle trappers.
The next day the ten were hung at Gallows Point, ending the brief yet legendary career of Calico Jack. In 1719 Rackham sailed into Nassau to take advantage of this deal, though while granted his pardon, he was denied his letters.
Propositioning the crew to exchange their catches for liquor, Rackham dropped anchor and a large drinking party was begun. Within a matter of hours, Captain Barnet had caught up to The William and a short lived battle ensued.
