Clive Palmer has an unsinkable dream: tohave a replica of the Titanic set sail sometime in 2018. The Australianbusinessman first began planning the project in 2012, but the original launchwas delayed. Now, 106 years after the untimely end of the ship’s namesake, theTitanic II is planned to embark on its maiden voyage from Jiangsu in EasternChina to Dubai.

The new Titanic will of course have modern evacuation procedures,satellite controls, digital navigation and radar systems and all those thingsyou’d expect on a 21st century ship,” assures James McDonald, the marketingdirector of Blue Star Line. For example, the new ship will have a 2,700lifeboat capacity for its 2,435 member crew, as opposed to the original’slifeboat capacity of 1,178 for its 2,223 passengers.( Source from the Boredpanda)
