The ships I think are best based on aesthetics and construction quality;  :pir-classic:

12. HMS Gallardia - 1 point.
17. Tornado of Souls - 1 point.
26. Lion of Luebeck - 2 points.
29. Galleon - 1 point.
32. RTS San Legonio - 2 points.

All of the ships listed and nominated were fantastic! It was difficult for me to pick out which ships I liked best out of all of them, and even harder for me to pick out how many points went to each ship once I had picked them out!   :pir_laugh2:

Good luck to all nominees!

TWO POINTS
10. French Navy Xebec (probably the most polished of the 'traditional' sailing ships)
2. RTS Zavala (love the unique paddleboat twist)

ONE POINT
32. RTS San Legonio (lovely colour scheme)
1. HMS Achilles (cute, probably best sails of the lot)
11. Le Sang Royale (also another unique design)

Though there were plenty of great submissions. It's a shame some of the contestants are obviously better builders than they are photographers! I would have loved to see maybe some other angles with more flattering lighting.

My votes:

HMS Gallardia by Maydayartist - 1 point
An very original built vessel, I have seldomly seen this technique. Let alone seeing it being used on a ship. Excellent.

Le Vesta by Admiral Croissant - 2 points
I have seen the stages of this mighty vessel with my own eyes and the improvements on her all the time are truely spectacular.

HMS Sabre by Swab - 1 point
A simple but very effective ship, the vessel is really appealing to me and the rigging is absolutely top notch.

Tornado of Souls by Derfel Cardarn - 1 points
A lovely ship, well shaped and great colours. The brick built sails really did it for me!

Le Achille by Perfectionist - 2 points
I have never deemed such a fantastic vessel being possible to be built with LEGO. While it has no sails yet it is one of the very best ships I've seen. Perfectionist is an excellent name for such a ship builder.

There you have it! :pir-sweet:
There are a lot of beautiful shaped LEGO ships sailing the seven seas, and I think everyone should be proud!

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

They all look quite similar to me, a non-pirates man. But a few stand out anyway.
4 points go to the tornado of souls. Excellent brickbuilt sails, and the whole ship just feels right to me.
3 points to DNL's hansa trade cog.

There are so many wonderful ships... I am in awe of those who have the talent to build such beautiful ships out of LEGO.

I decided to cast my votes not necessarily on ships that are 100% realistic, but on ships that are pleasing to my eyes.

In no particular order:

6 La Mort Royale: 1 point
9 Nuestra Senora de la Conception: 2 points
11 Le Sang Royale: 1 point
15 Vesta: 1 point
17 Tornado of Souls: 1 point
25 The Maeve Aulsebrock: 1 point

Good luck to everyone
