Due to deteriorating conditions it was torn down and is now in pieces at the end of the dock, you can still see the plain hull on the other side of the dock. Apparently she was listing bad and was not in good shape.

I also saw the hull on the other side of the dock when we were at Castaway Cay on December 17th. It is identifiable as the Flying Dutchman, but barely.

Yup, I saw it too on my Thanksgiving cruise. The mast was lying in the sand opposite our docked ship. Kinda sad... :(

Three weeks ago we were on Oahu and visited the DVC Aulani resort (under construction). The Black Pearl is in the harbor.

They finished filming portions of the movie at Kailua Bay, Oahu. Our friends who live there said Johnny Depp was very gracious as he met with locals and signed autographs.

We heard on our cruise (12/2) that it would be coming back to Castaway Cay after filming, they are going to make a whole pirate themed area.

We were on the Nov. 14th 4day Bahamas cruise. I had not known about the Flying Dutchman. At dinner the night after Castaway Cay, this came up in discussion. Apparently, it is (was?) not owned by Disney, but a private individual. It's age was showing and the owner chose to have it dismantled and removed.

What was the Pearl, and is now in Hi, is/was owned by someone other then Disney. It was modified to look like the Pearl, then modified again for the latest Pirate movie as Blackbeards ship. Its no longer the Pearl. It also wasnt a true sailing ship. It was modified and had 2 engines to power it. This is from a HI magazine:

"The Black Pearl that’s here for On Stranger Tides isn’t actually a real sailing ship. It’s a tall ship set constructed over the hull of another vessel, the Sunset, which once earned its keep as a service ship for Gulf of Mexico oil platforms. Fully motorized—and obviously able to handle its recent journey across the Pacific from California to Hawaii like a champ—the ship set was also used in the second and third Pirates flicks Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End"

The Dutchman, was built by the studios for the movies on a barge. It was in storage in Freeport when Tom McAlpin found it, and had it moved to CC.

DCL had to buy it off of Disney Productions who were going to scrap it. When DCL bought it they were warned that it was just a set/prop and may not handle well sitting out in the open sea. They were also told that they would be 100% responsible for anything that happened to it.

It is, of course owned by Disney. It was made for a Disney movie, and lived out it's days as a photo op on Castaway. There are many divisions of Disney, so yes, to bring it to Castaway Cay there was some internal money shuffling. You could always tell that the back wasn't "finished." It was made to be photographed from certain angles only for film purposes. And, over the years, the deterioration became more obvious.

Look at all the work that goes into keeping the exterior of the Magic "ship shape." Basically every time we are in port, they are painting, removing rust, etc. The stage prop was stuck in salt water with no maintenance. I'm just glad we had many years to enjoy it.

I am going to post something that is not going to very popular. I am thriled it is gone, and I never wanted it there to begin with. It is a prop from what I concider to be one of, if not the worst movie in history. I hope DCL goes in a new direction, but with the 4th movie coming out I doubt that will happen. I am sure by may something will be back. Only time will tell.
