Does your best friend wear an eye patch? Do you have a hideout full of buccaneers that need to ride in style? If the answer to either of those questions is a resounding “Aye!,” then this here might be the vessel for you,” writes msn. “The “Gypsy Rose” is a 1998 Ford bus that’s been completely transformed into a rolling pirate-themed party barge, and it’s up for sale right now on Craigslist in Pittsburgh.

In its previous life, the bus was used by a tour company as a colorful transport for winery and brewery tours, corporate team building outings and even weddings, they report.

“Some of the experiences included costumed actors and actresses that played out skits in the aisles, capped off with an appearance from the lead character, the infamous Cap’n McKraken.”

It’s all yours for $50,000. The bus is 39-feet long and holds 26 passengers and is fueled by a 5.9-liter Cummins diesel engine with 104,835 miles on it. It also has a custom sound system with USB and auxiliary inputs.
