The Hispaniola was a 18th century British sailing ship.


Found in Bristol in the middle of the 18th century, the Hispaniola was the ship Squire Trelawney used to get to Treasure Island, with Captain Smollett as its captain.

The Hispaniola temporarily fell under pirate control as part of Long John Silver's mutiny, but Jim Hawkins later managed to sneak aboard and beach the ship, rendering it useless to the pirates, and brought down the pirate flag to replace it with the British flag.

Behind the scenes

The Hispaniola, based on the schooner of the same name in R. L. Stevenson's novel, appeared in the 1950 film Treasure Island and other parodies and retellings of the Treasure Island story. In the film, it was portrayed by the Reylands, which also famously stood in for Herman Melville's Pequod in the 1956 John Huston-directed version of Moby Dick.
