The structure is designed to look like a miniature ship; however, unlike a real ship it has wheels which allows it to move on land. Once Burger Beard turns it into a fast food restaurant, the recipes used to make the food are stored inside the ship and there is a red sign advertising "Burger Beard's Beard Burgers." The ship is equipped with cannons as well as an anchor.
Role in movie
It is first seen at the beginning of the movie when Burger Beard uses it as a method of transportation across the ocean to Bikini Atoll to find a special book. The skeleton who holds the book has enough strength to throw Burger Beard to his ship after stealing the book.
He later uses the vessel to transport himself to a nearby beach where he starts selling Krabby Patties using the Krabby Patty secret formula. When SpongeBob and his friends find him, they chase him down the streets and the vehicle is known to be equipped with cannons as it fires cannons at SpongeBob when he tries to pick up the formula off the ground.
The vehicle can travel both on land and sea although its appearance is meant to represent a ship.
