For almost four decades, the ship used in this film, built to MGM's specifications at Lunenburg's Smith and Rhuland Ltd., at a cost of $750,000 has been a popular tourist attraction in St. Petersburg, Florida. It appeared at the New York World's Fair in 1964.
Visitors got to tour the ship itself and learn more about both the historical H.M.S. Bounty and MGM's two screen versions of the Nordhoff and Hall book. Beginning in 2007, the ship is recreating portions of the historical voyage, sailing from the United States to England to Pitcairn Island.
The replica tall ship was also used in Treasure Island (1990) and the Pirates of the Caribbean series, but was sunk during Hurricane Sandy on 29 October 2012.
