Pirates beware - the tiny ship is equipped with six cannons.<br />
<br />
Yours for £360k - Full size replica of Sir Francis Drake's legendary ship the Golden Hind.<br />
<br />
Sir Francis Drake's famed Elizabethan galleon, in which he circumnavigated the globe, is a floating museum in Brixham harbour in Devon.<br />
<br />
The 120ft wooden ship is an exact remake of the flagship which Drake sailed round the world from 1577 to 1580, the first Englishman ever to circumnavigate the globe.<br />
<br />
The boat, which was built in 1988, is the second of two replica Golden Hinds which have taken pride of place in Brixham, Devon, since the 1954.<br />
<br />
The current owner, Simon Read, inherited the boat from his father John who bought the original replica in 1970 and ran it until 1988 when it was replaced by a new version.<br />
<br />
Above decks it boasts two square-rigged masts each with iconic 'crow's nests', and six canons.
