In another wiki the basic German 3550 Piratenschiff versions (v1, v2) and variations (a, b, c, d) were described – https://www.klickypedia.com/wiki/3550-piratenschiff-german-versions-and-varitions/
But there are a lot of International versions.

These are all related to one of the German versions: v1 (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk) and v2 (crew members have skin colored rotating hands / the trunk being lifted becomes a brown one).

3550famobil-xx-box-00Begining in Spain, we have the FAMOBIL 3550.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/3550-fam-pirate-ship/
Similar to the german v1 version (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk)
It is easy to identify:
– the word Famobil in the box’s front replaces Playmobil;
– in here the words “5 CLICK” are added (inside a red jagged balloon) and also the word “CONTENIDO”.
– there is no set number in the front;
– the skull and bones flag in the ship’s front mast is black instead of red;

Also in Spain there are 2 variations of locally made PLAYMOBIL 3550, similar to the German v1 (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk).
They are also, both of them, easy to identify – the skull and bones flag in the ship’s front mast is black instead of red.

3550lyra-xx-boxAcross the Mediterranean there is a Grek LYRA 3550.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/3550-lyr-pirate-ship/
It uses one of the variations (b) of the german v1 version (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk).
It can be identified by:
– the word “LYRA” in the box’s front cover;
– a wider blue frame around the box’s front cover.

3550antex-01Across the Atlantic we have an Argentinian ANTEX 3550 version.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/3550-ant-pirate-ship/
It is probably similar to Germany’s v2 version (crew members have skin colored rotating hands / the trunk being lifted becomes a brown one).
Images of the box are not known (only of the catalogue and instrucions).

23.55.0trol-xx-boxThere is also a Brazilian TROL version, the 23.55.0.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/23-55-0-trol-pirate-ship/
Again it is similar to the German v1 version (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk).
The best way to identify it is to see:
– the “TROL” logo in the box’s cover (bottom left).

13550-cat-84-01a Mexican AURIMAT version, the 13550.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/13550-aur-pirate-ship/
It is probably similar to Germany’s v2 version (crew members have skin colored rotating hands / the trunk being lifted becomes a brown one).
Images of the box are not known (only of the catalogue and instrucions).
In 1989 there is also the probability of the set number becoming 23550.

barco pirata mattel 13333and another Mexican version, MATTEL 13333 Barco Pirata.   https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/13333-xat-pirate-ship/.  similar to the german 3550 v2 version (crew members have skin colored rotating hands / the trunk being lifted becomes a brown one).

North America, the oldest version is SCHAPER’s 0104 Super Deluxe Pirate Ship Set.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/0104-sch-super-deluxe-pirate-ship/
Similar to the german v1 version (crew members have fixed hands colored as their torsos; / the crane in the box’s front lifts a yellow trunk).
Easy to identify:
– the words “Schaper a Play Set” are included in the box’s front near Playmobil Logo;
– also “GUARANTEED FUN..” inside a yellow jagged balloon;
– and also the set number (top right) and the mention “Super Deluxe Pirate Ship Set” (bottom left).

There are probably some variations of this set:

jcpenney1980-pg491-923-7926-bSold by JC Penney, set number 923-7926.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/923-7926-sch-pirate-ship-set/

https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/49-59993-sch-pirate-ship/

0104schaper-cat-sales-01And also a possible older version, yet to be confirmed, with a different design, similar to the other Schaper sets that were made back then.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/0104-sch-super-deluxe-set-pirate-series/

Finally, North American Playmobil produced its own version – the 3050 Pirate Ship.
https://www.klickypedia.com/sets/3050-usa-pirate-ship/.
It is similar to Germany’s v2 version (crew members have skin colored rotating hands / the trunk being lifted becomes a brown one).
It has 2 variations:

3050us-pirate-ship-box-00The variation a:
– has an outline set number in its box.

3050us-pirate-ship-box-01The variation b:
– a solid black set t number in its box.

Is this all there is?
Maybe yes maybe no.
Some of these versions or variations were only confirmed very recently and from some of them there is a lot of information missing.
But others can appear.
