"As you know, I've been asked to serve as captain of the Ranger when next we sail."
Hal Gates to the crew of the Walrus.[src]

The Ranger was a pirate ship captained by Charles Vane.


It is unknown when and where Vane obtained the Ranger. When Eleanor demands that Vane's crew either decide to be blacklisted or join with Captain Flint in his expedition, the Ranger, to all intents and purposes, becomes Flint's ship. During the expedition, the Ranger is captained by Gates. Along with the Walrus, the Ranger was involved in the battle against the Spanish Man O' War. The Ranger was eventually destroyed and all of her crewmembers died.
