The Black Pearl, originally the Wicked Wench, is a fictional ship in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. In the screen-play, the Black Pearl is easily recognized by her distinctive black hull and sails. This turns out to be an advantage in more than one way. Not only do the black sails act as an intimidation tactic, but the Pearls crew can put out the deck lamps for added stealth at night. The Ship was originally named the Wicked Wench before she was ordered burned and sunk by Lord Beckett. It was later raised from the sea floor by Davy Jones after making a pact with Jack Sparrow who rechristened her the Black Pearl. She is said to be "nigh uncatchable". Indeed, in the three films she either overtakes or flees all other ships, including the Interceptor (regarded as the fastest ship in the Caribbean) and the Flying Dutchman (which is actually faster against the wind). Her speed is derived from the large amounts of sails she carries. She is noted in "At Worlds End as being "The only ship which can outrun the Flying Dutchman."
