The ship is first seen when the film begins, where a sailor tells Prince Eric and Grimsby the supposed legend surrounding King Triton.
The ship is seen again later in the film, when Ariel swims to the surface to examine it. It is shown shooting fireworks into the night sky as crewman dance in celebration of Prince Eric's birthday. Ariel is enamored when she sees Prince Eric, who is given a large statue of himself as a birthday present by Grimsby.
Without warning, a hurricane blows in, sweeping up both ship and crew violently in a volley of wind and water. Ariel is thrown off the vessel and into the sea, while Scuttle is blown away by the wind. Ariel surfaces just in time to witness a bolt of lightning strike one of the sails, setting it on fire. When the ship crashes into a gaggle of rocks, the crew is sent overboard, along with the statue of Eric. Though they all made it to the lifeboats, Eric discovers that Max is still on the burning vessel, and goes to rescue him. While Eric manages to get Max to safety, his foot gets stuck in a hole, and he is unable to save himself. He gets blown away by a massive explosion and lands into the ocean, unconscious. When she sees this and rushes towards his aid, Ariel rescues Eric and takes him back to shore.
The ship appeared cameo during the song, Tip and Dash.
This ship appeared on the show in Season 3 and was used by Prince Eric for travel to Agrabah.
