The galleon is wooden with three riggings, three windows with cannons on the edges, the Kremling Krew symbol on the middle sailboat and a black flag on the back, K. Rool's golden figurehead on the ship bow and a red flag striped with black at the top of the mainbrace.

K. Rool's cabin contains four windows, desk, chandelier with four candles, maps, a sword, a chest with the same crown, barrels, a bed, a red carpet and portraits.

Artwork of Gangplank Galleon.

The galleon appears in Donkey Kong Country's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Diddy and Dixie Kong traveled through the galleon, which was wrecked on the left coast of Crocodile Isle. The ship holds many stages, and houses many enemies, not to mention a very large bird boss living in the crow's nest[1], Krow. Beating this area gives access to the Crocodile Cauldron.

Donkey Kong Land 2

In Donkey Kong Land 2, Kaptain K. Rool raised the galleon from the waters, newly reviving it as with the rest of Crocodile Isle. It is unravaged somewhat from being underwater, and it is later sunken once more by the Kongs, this time for good. The area possesses the same stages from Donkey Kong Country 2. After defeating the boss, the heroes can move forward to the Krem Cauldron.



  • In the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of Donkey Kong Country 2, the Donkey Kong Island can be seen in the background of the map of Gangplank Galleon.
  • In the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2, the Gangplank Galleon is crashed into the right side of Crocodile Isle, and not the left like in the original SNES version. The same change is also present in Donkey Kong Land 2.
