The flagship of the Union Castle Line , Built Cammell Laird & Company. Launched 1959

RMS Windsor Castle made a total of 124 round voyages. Carried around 270,000 passengers and steamed over 1.6 million nautical miles. She never missed a scheduled sailing

The demolition of the ship began on 18 August 2005, exactly 45 years to the day since her maiden voyage from Southampton to Durban

The Royal Mail Ship Windsor Castle of 1959 was the largest passenger and cargo mail ship operated by the Union-Castle Line on their ‘Cape Mail’ service to South African ports

The new vessel was notable for the high standard and design of her public rooms in a “traditional” first class and “contemporary” tourist class configuration, which afforded both classes public rooms and deck space facing forward

The spacious passenger lounges and dining rooms were designed by eminent British architects

RMS Windsor Castle was air-conditioned throughout the passenger and crew areas. Facilities included a fully equipped hospital, two outdoor swimming pools, a health spa and a theatre/cinema. A large amount of dry and refrigerated cargo space, cargo wine tanks and a bullion room, were also fitted

Salvaged from the 1950s ocean liner RMS Windsor Castle when she was broken up in 2005, we have managed to recently get these doors out from the back of one of our stores

The RMS Windsor Castle was the flag ship of the Union Castle Line

However, if you would like full resolution images any of our doors, please just ask, and we’ll go fish it out for a proper set of pics, or even better, make an appointment to come and choose your own

All of our doors are original and therefore there is a large variety of size, styles and even thicknesses, so sets are very difficult to achieve, although when more than one door is required we do make a special effort to try and find the same style of planking

The door furniture is the original set from the ship, and no, sadly we don’t get the keys from the ships as they are always long gone by the time the ship hits the beach

Please contact us prior to purchase so we can get you an accurate shipping quote, but please note, the average pallet cost in England is £50+vat each, and these doors would take 2  x pallet spaces (max 8 doors per double pallet consignment)
