Blue Star Line Chairman Clive Palmer has announced Blue Star Line in conjunction with German hydrodynamic service and consulting company Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) will next month be conducting the first model testing of the proposed Titanic II.

Hull form design with propulsion arrangement is developed by Deltamarin and optimised with extensive CFD-study. Original Titanic hull form characteristics above the design waterline have been followed, but the lower part is designed for high fuel efficiency and good seakeeping capabilities.

Model test coordination will be taken care of by Deltamarin as part of our contract with Blue Star Line.

We are very sorry for not having replied to your comments recently, however, here is a general comment to all inquiries about the project progress: As you may have read in the news the first project development phase has been completed and now the focus is on the evaluation and the project master plan development. More information will be available once this phase is completed.

Hi Vesa, it's all gone very quiet. The Blue star web site has not been updated. Is Deltamarin still working on the project? Is the final layout (cabins,public rooms) nearing completion?

I just wanted to ask how close is Deltamarin is to finalizing the design of Titanic II? Since the design of a cruise ship takes approximately 24 months (2 years), the design period of Titanic II should end in July 2014. Are you guys on track to show us the final design sometime in the summer?

When will the sea keeping, life boat cover and maneuverability tests take place?

Reply to Steven Sladic comment on 2014-02-25: The owners, Blue Star Line together with the selected yard will make the decision when to proceed to shipbuilding contract. We are not in a position to say when that will happen.

Name: kevin This is the company that helped with the davits in the movie and on the actual Titanic. That would be cool if you used them on the Titanic II.
