This is a particularly rare Cabin Accommodation plan for White Star Line's MV Britannic from September 1931, just a year after her maiden service on 28th June 1930.
The plan is in superb, original condition, with no rips or tears and has a wonderful, colour image of the ship in the top-left of the plan.
She was the penultimate ship built for White Star Line before its 1934 merger with Cunard. When built, Britannic was the largest motor vessel in the UK. Her running mate ship was the MV Georgic.
Follwing White Star's 1934 merged with Cunard, both Britannic and Georgic retained their White Star Line colours and flew the house flags of both companies.
From 1935 the pair served London and at the time, were the largest ships to do so. From early in her career Britannic operated on cruises as well as scheduled transatlantic services. Diesel propulsion, economical speeds and modern "cabin ship" passenger facilities enabled Britannic and Georgic to make a profit throughout the 1930s, when many other liners were unable to do so.
MV Britannic was the last White Star Line ship to be scrapped in 1961.
