The Barbar Pirates' ship first appeared in Episode 97. It can run on sand and its figurehead is an umbrella. After accidentally breaking their mast, Luffy promised to search for wood in order to repair their ship, a promise that he carried to the end. The crew also uses Sand Sleds, which Rasa in particular is said to be quite skilled at using.[1]


  • Their name seems to be taken from the Barbary pirates, Muslim pirates who raided parts of North Africa. Their captain's real-life namesake, Hayreddin Barbarossa, was affiliated with pirates from that region.
