The Last Voyage of Ringtail Van Dukke (titled Donald Duck als piraat in the original Dutch) is a comic story written by Evert Geradts and drawn by Ben Verhagen. It features Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, numerous Beagle Boys both past and present, and, in their debut, Ringtail Van Dukke, Pinchpenny Van Dukke and Gruffy, Ruffy and Tuffy Van Dukke.
A mysterious drop in the level of the Money Bin's sea of coins reveals an old archives room in which the Ducks find and read the history of their pirate ancestor, Ringtail Van Dukke, up until he lost a treasure he had sworn to protect, dooming him to the life of a seafaring revenant ever looking for the chest. Not long after, a tornado whirls Donald and the boys at sea, where they don't take a long time to encounter a certain ghost pirate!
- This story's opening utilizes a similar format to the earlier The Adventures of Sinbad Duck (1985), with Donald Duck once more discovering the diary of a distant seafaring ancestor of his in a dusty library in Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin.
