RMS QUEEN ELIZABETH 2
NAVIGATIONAL CHART FROM HER FINAL VOYAGE QE821
SOUTHAMPTON- DUBAI 2008

QE2 is the most famous ship in existence. Recognised around the world she sailed over 5.5 million miles.
Available to purchase is a one of a kind original navigational chart that was used by the Navigation Officer on her final voyage in 2008 covering the Mediterranean.
The route from Gibraltar to Egypt is marked and signed by 8 Officers from the QE2 bridge, including Captain Ian McNaught.
It details the final ports of call for voyage number  QE821 Southampton – Dubai, 11th November – 27th November 2008 Final Voyage.
Only 6 charts exist for the final voyage and they were auctioned off on QE821 to international maritime collectors. Each chart marked there own navigational route to Dubai.  Each chart is a piece of maritime history and all are one of a kind.
The only reason I have this chart in my possession, is because I was the Art Auctioneer of the QE2 from 2007-2008 and it was given to me by the Bridge....

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Now that is a very nice item. Professionally mounted inside a nice frame it would look a picture (pun intended) on my wall.
Oh for a lottery win  ::)

Just proves how 'overpriced' all their onboard "ARTWORK" truly is......

We only go for the free 'champange'.

Its the one thing I hate on board ships now......its just a racket.

I was at the auction on board QE2 on the last voyage to Dubai and witnessed the charts being sold off - I recall the best bid for a series of charts being about $20,000. A nice piece of memorabilia to have. I have video footage of the auction and many pictures of the charts.

I just "won" a bid for a vintage Airfix Model of the QE2 still sealed in it's packaging. I was cock-a- hoop at "only" paying £16 for it and blow me if another one has not come out of the woodwork.  I was willing to pay more too!
I'll be interested to see what it goes for......

Not Ebay exactly - more 'Guess which part'?
http://newyork.kijiji.com/collectibles/brooklyn/qe2-engine-part-mounted-signed/?ad=1990356

That part is a turbine blade root fixing. I'd love to own something like this but not at that price  :o

I am surprised nobody bid on the navigational chart. I am even more surprised that someone would part with it. I have a navigational chart from QE2's 2nd to last voyage (Mediterranean) just before voyage to Dubai. They were auctioned off for charity during last day at sea. I could not think of parting with it.

How much  :o :o :o
I don't think that's a very good model myself. I certainly wouldn't buy it (at any price).
