Titanic II To Set Sail In 2016
Artists' images have been released of the ocean liner, which is a replica of the ill-fated ship but with enhanced safety features.
Australian billionaire Clive Palmer and Markku Kanerva of Finnish boat designers Deltamarin have released artists’ images of what the Titanic II will look like, as well as details about the replica ship. Announced last year, the ocean liner is being constructed at CSC Jinling Shipyard in China and her maiden voyage will be from Southampton to New York in 2016.
The new ship will have a welded hull, diesel power generation, bow thrusters for increased manoeuvrability and a new hull form below the waterline that provides greater stability and fuel efficiencies. It features ten principle steel decks with state-of-the-art 21st century technology, and the latest navigation and safety systems.
