One way of reaching the ship is by Gild Tesoro's Vivre Card, that is considered as a personal invitation by Tesoro himself. The invitation is delivered in a closed envelope sealed by the Gran Tesoro emblem. One invite was given to Mad Treasure by Tanaka so that the treasure hunter could deliver the Pure Gold to him. The envelope was later taken by Nami and the Vivre Card was used to guide the Straw Hat Pirates to the casino.
Ship Design and AppearanceEdit
A large portion of the Gran Tesoro is composed of gold, and its bow resembles a cruise ship, only much more massive in scale. The entire ship is ten kilometers long and a city is built inside it, with no roof covering it. The stern is a large circle with a tall golden tower in the center (designed to look like a roulette wheel), and at the very back is a large green area (designed to look like a card table). The front of the ship allows others ships to enter inside the Gran Tesoro. Its name and two pirate flags can be seen when entering the ship.
The ship's jolly roger is a thin skull wearing a purple top hat balanced on the left side of its head, with two white crossbones behind it. Behind the skull and crossbones there is a large yellow dotted pattern in the shape of a capital letter "G".
Above the entrance in the front of the ship, there is a figure of the jolly roger where the "G" is made out of light bulbs.
