||Ship's Mast with Stainless Steel Fitting Kit and Accessories - Here we have a unique opportunity to appeal to architects, interior designers, or those contemplating their own "Grand Design" project! We have been fortunate in purchasing a strictly limited quantity of ship's masts that were intended for use in an overseas retail interior design scheme that reflected the nautical look. To this end, the company who won the contract to make these items was a genuine ship's mast manufacturer - the laminated design used is identical to that employed on traditional sailing ship's masts. The round timber section is made from best quality Redwood and is laminated from 8 sections with a hollow interior. The base plate is made from 8mm stainless steel and is complemented by two stainless facia panels made from polished stainless steel to again reflect the nautical theme. When used in store, a Redwood cross beam (100mm x 45mm) was mounted on the stainless steel 16 gauge wall bracket (which is included with this set), which in turn was fitted through the slot cut in the top section of the mast and was then locked in position by a beautifully engineered stainless wedge. We do not have any cross beams remaining, but these are an off-the-shelf item although it is likely the new owners of these masts may wish to adapt them to their own use and spaces. Whilst these were manufactured back in the late 1990’s, they are brand new and have never been used and became surplus when the design scheme was replaced. Some of the timber has minor storage issues resulting in the odd scratch to the mast's finish, but this would be very easy to tidy up where required. We even have the stainless fixing bolts for the base plates, although the locking adhesive that is included is now date expired. We would imagine this kit would sit equally well in a marine themed environment, a wine bar, restaurant, club house, or in a loft space. The applications are as wide as your imagination! We do not exaggerate to say the original purchase price of a single set back in the late 1990’s was close to £1000 a time! We are offering each set 14 years later at a fraction of the manufacturer's costs and we can only speculate what it would cost to produce this quality and specification today. Quite clearly this is a one off opportunity and when they are gone they are gone. Each mast stands 2030mm (80”) to the base of the slot and the total height including the base to the top of the mast is 2500mm (98.5”). In view of their size, these are offered at an ex-warehouse price with the buyer being responsible for collection and delivery. Clearly final use is up to the end user, but these kits were designed for interior use and we believe this would remain the most appropriate application for them. Further detailed pictures of the sets can be provided on request. If you require a bulk quantity for your project please get in touch and we can look at a discounted trade price dependent on number of units required.
