Corsair Pirate Ship:
The brigantine was quick and easy to maneuver due to its square-rigged foremast and fore-and-aft sails. One of the most popular vessels of the Caribbean pirates. A typical ship carried 100 pirates and had enough cannons to scare any ship.
Caribbean piracy was very popular in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since the government couldn’t afford to sponsor a navy, private ships would be hired to serve as the government’s Navy. These privateers would get payment from the government plus whatever they managed to loot from the enemy ships. The privateers would split part of the loot with the government. Noblemen would also hire these privateers to get some of the loot. This was considered a good investment.
