NORTHERN STAR: 1962 - Full-ship deck plan from 1960s

Product Description

Shaw Savill Line:  A fold-out deck plan (24" by 34) for the NORTHERN STAR, a ship that headed to the scrap yard well before her time. 

No date, but this plan is from the 1960s and shows part or all of ten decks, from the "Housetop Observation Deck" down to the laundry room on Lower Deck. 

The NORTHERN STAR's intended purpose as a one class immigrant ship is evident by the hundreds of tightly packed little cabins.  But at least there is plenty of common area: the Sports Deck unbroken by center funnel casings, a Sun Deck Swimming Pool with adjacent paddling and "non-swimming" pools, six big public rooms and a stern terrace on Lounge Deck, an Infants' Play Room with an outdoor area and a wading pool on Promenade Deck, and two large dining rooms on Restaurant Deck.  

Like her older sister SOUTHERN CROSS, the NORTHERN STAR had her engines mounted in the stern with a funnel tacked on back.  It was an odd look then, and an odd look now, although her stern engine placement is common today.  

When the Australian trade died down by the late 1960s because of jets, the ship was put into cruise service.  But she was plagued with mechanical problems during an era of rising oil costs and the NORTHERN STAR was sent to the breakers in 1974 at age 12. 

When ship buffs get together to debate the most unsuccessful ships of all time, the NORTHERN STAR usually ranks near the top.  

Very good condition.
