YAQUE Class: 1947<br>Final Yankees

Product Description
United Fruit Company: A deck plan of the YAQUE Class of combo freighters built immediately after WW2. The plan itself is reminiscent of the great pre-WW2 designs - printed on thin tissue, opening to a large size (18" by 24"), nicely illustrated, and showing plans large enough that you can easily imagine yourself strolling the decks. Mark Goldberg, in his history of American fruit ships "Going Bananas", describes the class as "beautiful white ships with raked bow, two-knuckle counter sterns, and an uncluttered appearance." The plan opens to a big b&w portrait of class leader YAQUE. Fully opened, three decks are shown. Twelve passengers were carried in stylish comfort with open deck space and a small semi-enclosed Verandah on the Boat Deck, with eight cabins and a Lounge on Bridge Deck and a Dining Saloon tucked underneath. Along the left are three photos: Passenger Verandah, a wood-lined cabin, and the Lounge. On the back of the plan is a map of "Middle America", commonly known today as Central America. This class of nine (YAQUE, SANTO CERRO, HIBUERAS, QUISQUEYA, SIXAOLA, ULUA, CIBAO, TIVIVES, and MORAZAN) were the last American-flagged banana boats built for United Fruit. They served for more than twenty years until American flagged service proved too costly. The company switched them over to the British Elders & Fyffes in 1970 and by the mid-1970s all were scrapped. Excellent condition.
