One and the same...
The Bounty that recently sunk was a working replica of Bounty built for the movie, Bounty appeared at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. It was built to Admiralty plans, but significantly larger to accommodate the filming crew and equipment. In the summer of 2007 it sailed to Britain and visited several ports, although not in "Bounty" trim: masquerading as the pirate ship The Black Pearl from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.

The replica was located in Norway, and offered for sale at a price of US $4,600,000.

On October 29, 2012 the ship had sunk 90 miles off the North Carolina coast after being caught by Hurricane Sandy.
