Ship Design and AppearanceEdit
The Oro Jackson was made from wood hewn from the treasure tree "Adam", the same wood is used during the creation of the Thousand Sunny, the ship that belongs to the Straw Hat Pirates. The figurehead of the ship appears to be a pair of mermaids alongside a forward facing cannon. The ship had three masts, with red sails and a jolly roger on the foremast. The sails also have a vertical stripe design.
The ship was built by Tom at Water 7, and was sailed from there.
While by normal standards, a shipwright who built a pirate ship will not be charged of any crimes as they have no control over the pilots of the ship, Tom was made a special case for building the Oro Jackson, as the clientele was Roger. Tom was ultimately sentenced to death, though he did proudly proclaimed he built the ship, showing neither regret nor denial.
Franky, one of Tom's protege, dreams of creating a ship that will surpass the Oro Jackson. Although the dream had been shattered when Tom was executed, it has been revitalized upon the meeting with the Straw Hat Pirates, thus giving rise to the Thousand Sunny, also built from Adam tree wood. The Thousand Sunny has yet to achieve Franky's dream, though he serves as the shipwright.
- 'Oro' is "gold" in Spanish and Italian, a reference to 'Gold Roger', the name most people know Gol D. Roger as.
- A ship used by Gol D. Roger's crew was seen in Buggy's flashback. This is possibly not the Oro Jackson, as she appears to not have any mermaid figureheads on the prow of the ship.
- The center of the ship holds a polka-dotted object. While in the manga its shape is unclear, the anime and merchandise seem to depict it as an egg.
