SS LURLINE ocean liner model

SS Lurline was the last of four fast and luxurious ocean liners that Matson built for the Hawaii and Australasia runs from the West Coast of the United States.  

The Lurline was legendary on the Hawaii run, offering warm hospitality and pleasant diversions on five day express crossings from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Honolulu.  The time spent onboard was as much a part of a Hawaiian holiday. 

SS Lurline was launched on July 18 1932.  She served as a troopship in World War II.  In 1963, the famous Lurline became Chandris Lines' RHMS Ellinis.
 

 

  

 

This SS Lurline ocean liner model features:

- Superior hollow hull (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Full set of lifeboats are included.  We left some out of the pictures so that you can see the beautiful davits.

36" L x 13.5" T x 7" W  (including base's dimensions)    $2,900   S & H is $90   SOLD OUT

Add light feature: $200

If you want the Matsonia model, we can build another one for the same price (three month lead time.)  There are several differences between the two ships that only experts/historians would know.
