In 2011 one of the last beautiful mid-century ocean liners was sadly scrapped in India, signalling the ‘end of of an era’ for us and ‘vintage ocean liner salvage’ in general. MV Augustus, built in Italy and launched in 1952, was not only the last of Her kind but also the last of a famous Italian fleet of ships that did the Italy to S.America run, the rest being torpedoed or scrapped’. She was incredibly well designed & built, inside and out, during the swan-song period of European ship-building. The best designers, craftsman and materials went into the construction of Her which is why so much of the original material onboard survived being sold on and re-fitted. We salvaged so many wonderful items from Her, the variety & quantity of which meant we were able to buy them at a rate low enough to be able to sell them at a price where the wonderful provenance is for free! ‘True to form’
