The H.M.S. Coconut
My newest ship is called the H.M.S. Coconut and is the largest ship I have ever created. The name is drive from the brown, white and black hulls that resembles a coconut. It also comes from the fact that Admiral Anxious uses it tho go on his much needed vacations to the Caribbean. The Coconut features completely remove-able decks and customizable spaces. She is modestly armed (8 cannons and 2 deck guns) because she never goes into battle. Her main mission is to de-stress admiral anxious.
In these photos the gentle curve of the ship is visible. I used a ton of theseparts to get the desired effect (7662). The Coconut is an elegant ship built with the latest luxuries and comforts.
This shows how the ship splits into 3 parts. It was a challenge to build the ship with little to no support between the parts. The three parts are broken apart to access the interior of the ship. Then the decks are removed and placed aside. Then you split the main deck down the middle.
The front section with the brig and the ladder to the top. The sticker is from Soldier's Fort.
The middle section with the cannon bay
The aft section with the captain's office and Admiral Anxious's quarters
Here is the back with an opening flap.There is a black bar that keeps the flap up.
These are all the decks removed and displayed. They are as follows: Poop deck, Office floor, Back flap,
Main deck and Front deck.
The furniture inside the H.M.S. Coconut. The desk is my personal favorite.

I like it how you have a ship able to be seperated. I think more ships should become like this!
God save the gracious King,
Long live the noble King,
God save the King:
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the King.

These are just beautiful...
I love when people furnish MOCs, it is what makes Medieval Market Village so magical as well!
Great work look forward to your next creation!

I was trying to make a modular ship too, but I had issues with the masts.
Very good job!

The furniture are a really nice bonus too and I like that the decks are brickbuilt instead of just plates.
The amount of minifigs gives a nice crowded feeling and much life to the MOC. Me like
Congratulations to a top class ship!

The only suggestion I would make is removing the ratlines from the front spar. (looks a bit tacked on) other than that, she is a beauty. My favorite part? the little ship models.

Oh - and the design is very pleaing, and "too much" as seen in many other small ship MOCs. Well done
