"She comes starboard."
Hector Barbossa[src]

The Essex was a warship captained by the villainous Lieutenant John Scarfield of the British Royal Navy. She was crushed into pieces by the Silent Mary during a failed attempt at destroying the Black Pearl.

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The Essex was portrayed by the same prop that portrayed the Monarch and Silent Mary.
  • In the film the Essex flies the big Union Jack from the stern flagstaff. In real-world history, at the time in which the film is set, the Union Jack was flown from the jackstaff at the head of the bowsprit.
The Pirates of the Caribbean wiki has a collection of images and media related to Essex.
