RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after a disastrous collision with an Iceberg during her first journey from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. An Australian Billionaire Clive Palmer most widely recognized as possessor of Mineralogy and for his investments in other natural resource companies. The Billionaire is attempting the project on the construction of Clive Palmer’s Titanic II, a duplication of original RMS Titanic which claimed the lives of 1,500 passengers. Palmer is going to raise the Titanic once again and recreate the unsinkable ship which will mark her first voyage in year 2016. The ship will take the stunning start from Shanghai, China and continue to Southampton, England before arriving in New York, optimistically in single piece.
The novel ship will be created by CSC Jinling Shipyard, and will be operated by Palmer’s Blue Star Line (a parallel to the original Titanic’s White Star Line). The new ship will house approximately 2,600 passengers along with 900 crew members. The ship features 18 motor powered lifeboats competent enough of carrying 150 people each, as well as two life rafts that can bear 400 people. The calculations confirm that in case of a mishap the life boats will be enough of carrying 2,600 personals. The main flaw in the original Titanic was the shortage of life boats on the ship which led to a distasteful disaster and claimed 1,500 lives along with the engineer team.
The new Titanic is very much similar to the original Titanic in aesthetics and interior decorations, including Turkish baths, a grand staircase, etc. The new Titanic 2 is going to be 3 inches longer than the original one, also it hold many modern upgrades, including the air conditioning system.
