Australian Billionaire To Build Titanic II
As to whether the ship will be as seaworthy as the original vessel, Mr. Palmer stated that the Titanic II will have the same aesthetic as the historical ship but will be updated with modern sailing technology and a more robust design. Hopefully that reassurance will allay any fears about the ship suffering a similar fate as its predecessor.
In addition to the design updates, the Chinese navy has apparently agreed to escort the ship on its maiden voyage between Europe and the United States, though it's unclear whether that's for fanfare or protection.
