The Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman is perhaps the best known of all ghost ships, originating from 17th-century nautical folklore. According to legend, it can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. If spotted by another ship, its crewmembers will try and send messages to land, and is considered by sailors to be a bad omen.
