The legend of the Flying Dutchman is one of those stories that the crew might pass along when a ship is in trouble. There are various versions of the story, all with similarities shared with the legends and myths that preceded it. The Flying Dutchman is one of the most well known ghost ships of the seas. Also known as the phantom ship of Van der Decken, the story of this ghostly ship is believed to have originated during the 17th century. The Flying Dutchman began its spectral days haunting the seas around the Cape of Good Hope, but the ship is no longer bound to one.

The name of this ship has become a generic term for identifying either a fictional phantom ship or a real abandoned ship – often seen as an apparition – floating freely after being reported sunk. The Flying Dutchman is usually spotted in a ghostly glow from a far distance.   First noted in the late 18 th century, the legend of Flying Dutchman is the most famous story of a phantom vessel in European and American lore. It has inspired the imaginations of Washington.
