The Silent Mary was a Spanish Royal Navy ship of the line, which sailed in the Caribbean during the Age of Piracy. Commanded by Captain Salazar, she was the pride of the Spanish Navy and a fearsome pirate hunting ship. On her last mission, the Mary was wrecked in the mysterious waters of the Devil's Triangle while trying to capture the Wicked Wench. Several years later, she returned to the seas as a ghost ship. She made her debut in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Design and appearance

The Silent Mary was a three-masted ship of the line, with three gundecks. Her figurehead was a woman holding a spear. Originally, she held 28 cannons on the gun deck, 24 on the middle deck, 24 on the main deck, 4 on the forecastle, other four on the quarterdeck and 4 stern chasers beneath the captain's cabin: all these cannons made the Mary one of the heaviest armed ships of the Caribbean, able to face alone even a small armada of pirates. Despite her size, she was remarkably fast, since she caught up with the Wicked Wench while chasing her despite the latter's famous speed and a considerable headstart.

After being cursed in the Devil's Triangle, the Silent Mary was horribly wrecked, with ripped sails, almost no hull and one mast broken; despite that, the curse maintained her capable of sailing like a normal ship. In addition, Salazar gained the ability to lift the bow of the Silent Mary and crash the other ships under it, like the jaws of a sea monster, and the figurehead could animate and attack enemies with her spear.

Due to a large portion of the gundecks being broken, the Silent Mary could not carry as many cannons as she was capable before, but kept untouched her speed, if not augmenting it, since she was capable to match speed with the Black Pearl, known as the fastest ship of the Caribbean.


The Silent Mary was the jewel of the Spanish fleet, and under captain Salazar's command, it hunted many pirates, always coming out victorious. One day, a coalition of pirates engaged battle with the Mary near the Devil's Triangle, but they were quickly defeated due to the warship's superior firepower, sturdiness and skills of the crew. One last ship, the Wicked Wench, tried to flee and her newly-appointed captain, a boy named Jack, taunted Salazar provoking him into chase them. Salazar commanded the Silent Mary after the Wench, heading towards the Devil's Triangle, but Jack, with some ropes, turned the ship quickly and the Spanish vessel, with too much speed and no manuevering space, crashed in a cave: the gunpwder reserve exploded killing the whole crew, but the cursed magic of the place kept them alive, albeit in a twisted undead way, and the ship seaworthy, despite the damage suffered from the explosion. The Silent Mary was trapped in the Devil's Triangle for many years, unable to leave it due to the curse placed on it.

Dead Men Tell No Tales

While chasing a Dutch ship, the Monarch, a British Navy ship with Henry Turner on board, entered the Devil's Triangle: there, the crew saw a wreck in the fog, but it was the cursed Silent Mary, whose crew slaugthered the English leaving only the young Turner alive under the request of Salazar of delivering a message to Jack Sparrow.

Salazar was aboard the still trapped Mary when Jack sold his compass: due to the betrayal, the rocks that made the Devil's Triangle crumbled and collapsed around the ship, and finally the damned warship was free to sail. Salazar destroyed many pirate ships, taking control of the seas, when captain Barbossa, who lost half of his fleet against the undead, intercepted the Silent Mary and made a deal with Salazar: tracking Sparrow in exchange for letting his fleet live. Barbossa and what was left of his crew then boarded the Silent Mary and Hector piloted the ship in search of Sparrow: they found him, but they were unable to follow Jack on dry land, leaving them waiting at sea and being forced to release Barbossa's crew to capture Jack and his companions, Henry Turner and Carina Smyth.

When Barbossa betrayed the deal and released the Black Pearl in order to find the Trident of Poseidon, the Silent Mary, after destroying Lieutenant Scarfield's ship, the Essex, chased the Pearl and engaged battle with it, but was forced once again to interrupt its attack because the pirate ship went ashore on Black Rock Island.

The final fate of the Silent Mary is unknown, but it's certain the ship has been lifted from its curse with the destruction of the Trident of Poseidon, yet all the crew died when the Tomb of Poseidon closed above them.
