Gangplank Galleon is the final and fortieth area appearing in Donkey Kong Country.
In the game, Gangplank Galleon is visible from Donkey Kong Island in a little part of the distance after Kongo Jungle is finished. It comes closer and closer to Donkey Kong Island the further progress on the worlds Donkey and Diddy. Though, this area can only be accessed once the boss battle with Master Necky Snr. is completed, the boss battle being the last area of the final world, Chimp Caverns.
Mainly, this location is a major location as it is where the bananas from the Banana Hoard was taken from during the storyline of the game. Here, King K. Rool is battled for the bananas to be taken back. Once he is defeated, the Kongs talk to Cranky in his cabin (all the Kongs on the ship in the Game Boy Advance version). Also, the credits take place on this area in the Game Boy Advance remake rather than Donkey Kong's Treehouse from the original.
