Captain’s Quarters, 1972

Surprisingly, this is not the luxurious living room of a contemporary home but living quarters found within the Sea Royal, the 225-foot tuna seiner built by Tacoma Boatbuilding. An ornate electric fireplace, large wooden bar with upholstered stools, red leather chairs and oversized stuffed sofa resting on rich, red wall-to-wall carpeting present a picture that is a far cry from sterile ship conditions. The Sea Royal was launched on November 11, 1972.
