|Behind the scenes|
- "It's a Dutch barque. Probably stolen by the pirate Bonnet."
- ―Henry Turner
The Ruddy Rose was a Dutch barque that was stolen by the pirate Bonnet in 1751. While being chased by the British Royal Navy, she sailed into the mysterious waters of the Devil's Triangle where she was destroyed by the crew of ghosts led by Armando Salazar.
It is unknown when the Ruddy Rose was built, but by 1751 she served as a Dutch merchant vessel. However, the ship was stolen by the infamous pirate Bonnet. The theft was eventually discovered by the British Royal Navy, and the warship Monarch was sent to chase the pirates. In an attempt to escape, the Rose sailed into the mysterious uncharted waters of the Devil's Triangle, a place surrounded with gigantic reefs and covered in eternal darkness. During the chase the Rose was flying the black pirate flag, which turned out to be a fatal mistake. When she entered the Triangle, the Rose was attacked by the ghosts of the Spanish sailors whose ship, the Silent Mary, was destroyed decades earlier in the same waters. The undead pirate hunters quickly slaughtered the entire pirate crew, and the Rose sank to the bottom of the sea, leaving only a few floating debris and the pirate flag on the surface.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The ship was identified as Ruddy Rose in the film's novelization and named by the conceptual artist Jeremy Love. However, the ship's name was never mentioned in the film.
- In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales the Ruddy Rose was portrayed by the same prop that played three other pirate ships - the Red Dragon, the Queen Anne's Revenge, and the Wicked Wench/Black Pearl.
- The Dutch name of this ship would be Blozende Roos.
- When Henry Turner looks at the ship with a piece of mirror the pirate flag is flying from the mainmast. A few moments later when Officer Cole looks at the ship with his spyglass the flag is flying from the stern flagstaff.
