Guessing you mean a galleon-type? Black Pearl sort of thing? Real pirates sailed anything that floated and would allow them to approach whatever they intended to rob.
It very much can be done, there are lots of square riggers out there. Some are sail powered, some are more like the movie props, with a motor and propeller hidden away.

WOW....that's the coolest thing I've seen in a while. Are those giant scale kits or all scratch by lt?
yes, that's what I was thinking....I am looking for big sailing ship, easier for my old hands to build.
Also very impressive.

These are from UK, I don't they are kits.

How about a wram up build, get some saw dust in your system.
