The Titanic will sail again (for real) ! [News]
posted June 7 2012 8:06.06 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Some weeks after the 100 years anniversary Titanic's first (and last) voyage, an Australian billionaire Clive Palmer commissioned a Chinese shipyard (CSC Jinlin Shipyard) to build a historically accurate replica of the Titanic! This 21-st century replica of the historical ship will be an precise and accurate remake.

Palmer has hired a historical research team to figure our all the details of the nine-deck 840-rooms cruise ship. It will also have 4 towering smokestacks just like the original, but this time they will only be cosmetics, since the Titanic II will not be powered with coil but with diesel instead. It will have also gyms, spas, libraries, high class restaurants and luxury cabin-sand, as well as all the amenities people expect from luxury cruise ships. Additional changes will be an enlarged rudder and bow thrusters for improved manoeuvrability.

The construction of Titanic II will begin within 2013 and the total cost is not yet estimated. Hopefully, it will have also 21-st century building technology so that it will not sink from its maiden voyage on 2016.
