The Vile Body (also known as the Bluto) is Bluto's crusty old ship, which he has used in his many attempts to get the best of Popeye out at sea. The vessel was only named in the 1980 live-action film Popeye. It also occasionally serves as Bluto's home.
Much like Popeye's, Bluto's ship has been wrecked and rebuilt several times during his many encounters with Popeye, but it often appears in the form of a very large sailboat or tugboat.
- Bluto's ship is a feature in Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
