EXETER & EXCALIBUR: 1945 - Deck plan booklet w/ interiors pics

Product Description

American Export Line:  A twelve-page deck plan booklet from April 1960 for the EXETER and EXCALIBUR, the two remaining combo liners of the "FOUR ACES" Class. 

This plan shows five decks with details including the lay-out of officers' cabins on Boat Deck.  There are four b&w photos  - the Dining Room, Bar and Cocktail Lounge, Main Lounge, and a "Verandah Room".  You can see that on A Deck a group of four cabins on both the port and starboard sides are clustered around a common "verandah", or sitting room.  This meant that inner cabins would have daylight, albeit filtered through the common room.  Verandah Rooms were popular on the pre-war FOUR ACES, but in the post-war ships there were no inner cabins except for the four attached to the verandah.    

American Export bought four surplus hulls at the end of WW2 and built four luxurious combo ships, among the very first to be completely air conditioned.  By the late 1950s two had been mothballed due to economics, but the remaining pair, EXETER and EXCALIBUR, were kept in service.  These ships sailed until 1964 when American Export sold them to C.Y. Tung who used them for another 10 years before sending them onto the scrappers.  One of the earlier sister survived until 2007 when she was sunk off the Texas coast as an artificial reef. 

Good condition.
