Interior door salvaged from the tugboat Esso Massachusetts with a tag that states "DECKHAND ROOM." Four paneled door constructed with a solid mahogany frame with the top and bottom panels with slide panels that expose horizontal slat vents when removed. This design would allow air to vent during the warm months and closed off when cold. Retains its original lock, handles and hinges.
Width: 22-3/8", Height: 73", Thickness: 1-3/8"
This authentic tugboat door could be re-purposed as an interior door in your residence as a closet door, bathroom door, or for many other potential usages. We have three of these doors now in stock that vary slightly in size, but identical in design. We also have portholes, passageway lights, running lights and a built-in cabinet that was salvaged from the Esso Massachusetts.
