The first model tests for Titanic II were carried out on September 9 - 12, 2013 at the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA). The 9.3 m wooden model of the ship was put through propulsion and power testing in a 300 m long tank at HSVA's facilities in Hamburg.

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.
