Are legends of ghost ships real? Learn about haunted ships.
You might have seen the film, Ghost Ship, but not might be aware
that accounts of ghost ships have existed for centuries. Like the movie, some
ghost ships are fictional, while others are supposedly real. See pictures, videos
and stories about haunted ships.
Some ghost ships are usually believed to be crewed by the dead,
while some ghost ships are real ships that have disappeared or
sunk tragically. Yet, other ghost ships are still afloat, today, but
believed haunted by ghosts, such as the Queen Mary and the USS
Lexington. Also of interesting note, real ghost ships such as the
Mary Celeste, Baychimo, MV Joyita and the Jian Seng were found
sailing the seas with no crew!
Stories About Ghost Ships
Fictional ghost ships began appearing in
literature in the 1700s, especially in the
book The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner -
where a ghost ship is encountered with
two eerie characters, "Death" and
"Nightmare Life in Death," onboard,

Mariner and his crew. It is believed by

literature was likely inspired by the 18th
century legend of the most famous ghost
ship, The Flying Dutchman.
The Dutchman is, of course, a doomed
ghost ship that is cursed to never make
port, sailing the seven seas for eternity.
It has purportedly been sighted in the
1800 and 1900s, attempting to deliver
messages to both the ghosts of the dead
and the living. If it is seen by another
ship, it is believed to be a bad omen.

ships to the forefront of people's minds

Pearl and The Flying Dutchman in the
Disney movie trilogy, The Pirates of the
Caribbean, famous. Fans of the movies
can watch the ghost ships wage war in
the third installment, which has spawned
all sorts of children's playsets and
games. Of note, the Black Pearl had one
of the scariest ghost ship crews in
Hollywood history - they were truly a
"skeleton crew." Also of note, the second
film had The Flying Dutchman filled with
all sorts of sea creature crewmen as a
truly unique and seemingly unbeatable
ghost ship. The third movie pitted both
