Probably not, a fife is a type of early musical instrument closely resembling a flute. A fife is shorter than a flute, often made of wood, and has only finger holes no "keys" like a modern flute has. Fifes were often used in 17C to 18C military bands, until they were gradually replaced by the modern flute.

Fife is another word for for a kind of flute. So your ship is the Dancing Flute so to speak.
