MATSONIA: 1927 - Big fold-out deck plan after 1937 retrofit

Product Description

Matson Line: A BIG (33" by 36") fold-out deck plan brochure printed in November 1937 when the ship emerged from a retrofit with a new name - MATSONIA in place of the original MALOLO.

There is a large portrait of the ship showing off her stately lines flanked by large b&w photos of the Night Club and Bar. A further unfold reveals a route map and two more photos - Smoking Room and Dining Saloon.

The highlight is large, color-coded plans showing seven decks. You see those Lanai Suites on B Deck? Those were created during the retrofit when the lifeboats were moved up to Sun Deck. Both a large First Class and a much smaller Cabin Class are shown, although I think the ship sailed mostly as one class.

The MATSONIA served as a hard-working troopship during the war. Afterwards Matson rehabbed the liner but only operated her for two years before selling her to Home Lines. The First Class promenades and all those Lanai Suites from 1937 were filled in and divided into smaller immigrant cabins. She sailed as the ATLANTIC and then went to National Hellenic to became QUEEN FREDERICA. After being lay-up throughout most of the 1970s the ex-MALOLO was swept by fire in 1977 and gutted. Of course by then the darling of 1927 was just another old forgotten hulk.

Very good condition.
