Hundreds of hours where required to finish this model sailboat by skillful craftsmen and artisans. The Flying Dutchman model has a unique wood inlay base and many hand carved sculpture details. The Flying Dutchman is built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany.
It is 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Originally, the Dutchman held the sacred task of collecting all the poor souls who died at sea and ferrying them to the afterlife. According to legends and lore, the Flying Dutchman was given to Davy Jones by his love, the sea goddess Calypso, who gave Jones the duty of ferrying the souls who died at sea into the next world.
After ten years, Jones would be free to come ashore to be with Calypso. But whenever Davy Jones came ashore, Calypso was nowhere to be found. This ultimately resulted in Jones carving out his own heart, and locking it in the Dead Mans Chest. Jones abandoned his duty, instead wreaking havoc on the seas and unleashing the Kraken upon many vessels. He also preyed on wayward sailors lost at sea who wished to avoid death and final judgment, press-ganging them into his crew, eventually becoming part of the Dutchman itself.
Many years later, the crew of the Black Pearl would run afoul of the Flying Dutchman due to Jack Sparrows debt with its captain. Sparrow tried to escape service aboard the Dutchman by possessing Jones heart. The heart later found its way into the possession of Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company, who would use the Flying Dutchman and its crew to lead his armada in the War Against Piracy.
This eventually forced a confrontation with the Brethren Court off the coast of Shipwreck Island. The Flying Dutchman became locked in a titanic battle with the Black Pearl. In the midst of the chaos, Will Turner stabbed the heart of Davy Jones, thereby killing Jones and replacing him as the new captain of the Dutchman. They aided the pirates in destroying the HMS Endeavour , defeating Beckett. After the battle, Turner took on fulfilling the duty for which the Dutchman was originally designed for.For damaged or defective items. We might require the pictures of damaged item.
