Scarlet Squid Willow Clad Pirate Ship

A Naturally Finished Play Pirate Ship, Packed With Play Features

Clad in willow, The Scarlet Squid is a unique part of our fleet, combining subtle aesthetics with huge play potential. We were asked to create an outdoor play pirate ship for two very lucky children, just in time for a Pirate Birthday Party. We used Sandringham willow to clad the ship and translucent paints to create a more natural look, making the pirate ship fit in more naturally with its surroundings. Many of our other ships incorporate bold colours and this was the first time we constructed a pirate ship in this way, but based on the results, there will be many more like this to come. That is one of the joys of making completely bespoke play equipment: you can customise your play pirate ship – or any other piece of play apparatus – to be exactly as you want it to be.

Play Features Integrated Into The Pirate Ship

The ship itself, affectionately named the Scarlet Squid, is packed with play features and includes a plank (as all good pirate ships should), mast, step log, deck and cabin spaces, ship’s wheel, crow’s nest, slide pole, climbing holds, climbing net, skull and crossbones flag, and a steep slide. It’s a lot of play potential to pack into a small space, but maximising play potential whilst making attractive design sis something that we pride ourselves on.

We are happy to walk you through the design process and can either work with ideas that you might have or come up with something completely new. All of our designs are bespoke, meaning you will get a pirate ship play area like no other, so don’t be afraid to push the boundaries and design it exactly how you want it to be.
