A mighty pirate vessel!
About this creation
The ship uses the bow and stern hull pieces from Harry Potter set 4768 The Durmstrang Ship, which are the same hull pieces as used in the (in)famous 4+ pirate ship, just in different colours.

By the way, recently I learned that there was a ship by that name in the Pirates of the Caribbean Online game, however this is not related to it in any way, moreover it's just a coincidence since I came up with the name long before reading about the ship from the game, and I've never even played it.


Since no official middle sections for that hull exist in those colours, I had to go for a custom one, which was pretty tricky, and if you have one of those 4+ hull pieces and are aware of the way they are interconnected, you probably agree with me on that one.


Still, I am happy with the result, the long custom middle section blends in quite nicely with the bow and stern pieces.
I actually like those 4+ / Harry Potter hulls. They're bulky, wider than the normal hulls you typically associate with LEGO Pirates, and they have a great potential for building really big and nasty-looking vessels.


At first, when I started the building process, I wasn't even sure if this was actually meant to be a ship for the pirates or for the soldiers. Then I got to the bow part and built the figurehead using the most fitting piece I could find - and it just happened to be a skull. Well, from that point it became obvious this was no soldiers' ship.


A baby this size needs not one but two anchors to hold her in position when needed. Here you can see the mechanisms used to hoist them - pretty standard issue known from the first official LEGO ships, but the anchor ropes are nicely hidden under the deck.


A ship this size needs quite a crew. You will find some interesting individuals if you take a good look around.


It takes a lot of time to clean her decks too!


Speaking of which, in here you can see almost the whole main deck and the gun deck down below!


She is armed with 12 cannons on the gun deck...


...enough to outgun even a fully armed 10210 Imperial Flagship.


Where is that Imperial Flagship? :)


Such a big ship needs a big bell to call for the attention of the crew when needed. Also, I ALWAYS wanted to use this stairwell piece in a ship MOC. Now I have finally built a ship big enough to fit this!


The captain spends a lot of time on his bridge, and his first mate makes sure that all the pirates follow his orders. Oh, and he takes care of the two parrots, too.


We have seen the open parts of the ship, but what about the areas which are slightly more concealed? Well, first of all, here's an entrance from the gun deck to the crew quarters in the forecastle, hidden beneath the easily removable grid plate located on the main deck next to the anchor mechanisms, which you could see in one of the earlier pictures.


As for the stern part of the ship, the whole sterncastle section is easily removable, to reveal the galley, and also the very top of the sterncastle can be lifted to allow access to the captain's quarters. Let's take a look at the galley first:


Well, technically we have two rooms in here, separated by a door. Also, each room has another door leading to the gun deck. In one of the rooms the chef keeps some live animals for future consumption. We have some fish in a barrel here, and also a pig!


In the other room the chef prepares meals for the crew. As you can see, lately they managed to catch some crabs. I'm sure the captain will be delighted with such dinner.


Speaking of whom, there he is again, this time alone in his quarters. This guy surely does like to live comfortably! Even has two spare hooks - just in case!


And that's it, and once again thanks to everyone who took the time to read it all, please share your thoughts on the MOC, looking forward to reading your comments, and have a good day/night/whatever!

Nice to see I'm not the only one who makes custom sails out of paper when the lego pre-made sails aren't the right size and shape.

Quoting D H Amazing work! Pirate ships are the best... Well pirate AND imperial guards of course hehe. Anyway, love all the details and shaping. Out of curiosity, how did you acquire or make those sails? They look awesome!
I made them using thick stiff paper and scissors. All the official LEGO sails are much too small for a ship like that.

Quoting Ben King You've made quite the ship, especially using those odd hull pieces! You should add it to the group "Kings of the Sea", it would fit right in!
Done, thanks for the reminder! :)
