The Wild Cat is a fictional green two-masted schooner that Captain Flint, the Swallows, the Amazons and Peter Duck sail to the West Indies in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons book Peter Duck She also appears in the opening chapters of Missee Lee The ship would have been about 50 ft 15 m long In the book and the illustrations there is no mention of a head This is typical of Arthur Ransome's reticence on the issue

The name is taken from Wild Cat Island which features in all the books set in the Lake District She was converted from a Baltic trading schooner by decking over the hold to make a saloon with a long skylight and four double cabins opening into it The deckhouse has a couple of bunks which are used by the adults, Captain Flint and Peter Duck, in the book Peter Duck

In Ransome's book Missee Lee, the ship was burned to the waterline and sinks when Gibber, Roger's monkey, put a lighted cigar in the fuel petrol holding tank In Peter Duck, the Swallow is aboard and is used as one of the ship's boats In Missee Lee, both the Swallow and Amazon are aboard and used as lifeboats when she sinks
