Blue Star Line has contracted Deltamarin to continue with the design of Titanic II. The contract covers activities and tasks for the design process, consultancy and project management services.

Deltamarin will provide Blue Star Line with outline design services including finalising and modifying the existing design to comply with the latest rules and regulations. These include the SOLAS 2020 requirements and the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).

Deltamarin will also further develop the design together with the selected yard and Blue Star Line, and handle the management of consultations with potential shipyards.

Blue Star Line Chairman Clive Palmer said Deltamarin was the perfect choice for the Titanic II project. “We are delighted that Deltamarin – one of the world’s leading ship design companies – will once again be working on Titanic II,’’ Mr Palmer said.
“Deltamarin was one of the first global companies to come aboard when Titanic II was originally launched in 2012 and we are looking forward to continuing our excellent relationship.”

Kristian Knaapi, Head of Sales and Marketing at Deltamarin said the project team members were excited to continue executing Deltamarin’s core business on Titanic II.
“We look forward to developing the highest level of design for a challenging project. It is a great honour to be part of the history in supporting Blue Star Line in this one-of-a-kind project, the Titanic II,” Mr Knaapi said.

Blue Star Line has advised Titanic II enquiries to be sent through their website bluestarline.com.au where you may either subscribe or send enquiries directly.

    This is excellent news! When can we expect the project development phase to finish and for construction of the vessel to begin?

    • Deltamarin January 22, 2019 at 15:24 #

      Dear Matthew,
      Our target is to finish the project development phase during Q4/2019.

      • john Greencott June 11, 2019 at 19:42 #

        Are you expecting to meet your target of completion in Q4 2019, or will it go into 2020?

        • Deltamarin June 14, 2019 at 11:31 #

          Dear John,
          At the moment we are making concept design which is in schedule.

        • Tony Inwood September 11, 2019 at 15:01 #

          Good to see you are back dealing with this highly historic project . We look forward to the outcome . is there any further news on a shipyard for the build yet ?

          • Deltamarin September 12, 2019 at 08:11 #

            Dear Tony,
            Thank you for your question. Deltamarin is supporting the Client who is looking for different alternatives for building yard. So far, selection of yard has not been made but the work is ongoing.

    • Wim Van San April 14, 2020 at 01:33 #

      Hi, the laters reply was 7 months ago. I’ve read some somewhere that Titanic II is being built as we speak in China by CSC Jinlin. Is that correct?

      • Deltamarin April 14, 2020 at 14:19 #

        Dear Wim,
        That information is not correct. Decision on the building yard has not yet been made.

  2. Matthew January 26, 2019 at 14:57 #

    What company/shipyard will be building Titanic II? and in what country will said construction take place?

    • Deltamarin January 29, 2019 at 08:44 #

      Dear Matthew,
      The shipyard has not yet been selected. After completing the outline design we will search for suitable shipyards for this project around the world and together with the owner select the ones requests for quotation will be sent to. After quotations are received the final building yard will be selected.

  3. Malcolm Oliver February 19, 2019 at 01:38 #

    Will the steerage cabins really be as basic as the original?

    • Deltamarin February 20, 2019 at 10:06 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      All details will be as original as it is possible taking into account today’s rules and regulations.

  4. Malcolm Oliver March 21, 2019 at 22:20 #

    Dear Deltamarin, the Titanic II project has gone very quiet. Are you still working on it?

    What is the progress update?

    • Deltamarin March 22, 2019 at 12:35 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      The project development phase is still going on. As stated in an earlier comment reply, we expect to finish this phase in Q4/2019. In such a special project there are a lot of exceptional features to resolve which takes time.

  5. Matthew May 10, 2019 at 12:52 #

    What will happen with the Titanic II project once the project development phase has been completed?

    • Deltamarin May 10, 2019 at 14:22 #

      Dear Matthew,
      After project development the project is normally in a stage where the shipyard has been selected and the shipbuilding contract is signed. After this, basic design phase to get the class society approval will be started. All this depends naturally on the owner’s will.

  6. Martin June 6, 2019 at 23:42 #

    Hello Deltamarin, it appears that there have not been any new announcements about this project. Is this project still on? If so, in what stage is this project?

    • Deltamarin June 14, 2019 at 11:30 #

      Dear Martin,
      The work we do is confidential between the designer and the client, so there normally are no announcements until the work is finished unless the client (in this case Blue Star Line) wants to release something. At the moment concept design continues in schedule.

  7. Edward Lingg September 24, 2019 at 01:23 #

    Dear Deltamarin,

    I don’t know if recreating Titanic II in Belfast, where the original ship was constructed, would be an option, but what a tribute and a great way to honor all those lives that were lost on that fateful night in 1912. I applaud you and Mr. Palmer for recreating an amazing part of history. Whatever way I can help to promote such an incredible project, I would be honored to do so.

    • Deltamarin September 25, 2019 at 13:04 #

      Dear Mr. Lingg,
      Thank you for your kind words.

  8. Malcolm Oliver October 6, 2019 at 21:02 #

    Hi Deltamarin,

    Is the project development phase is still on going? Are you still on-target o finish this phase in Q4/2019.

    • Deltamarin October 9, 2019 at 08:45 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      We are still working with the project development and expect to finish it by year-end.

  9. Victor Lima October 14, 2019 at 18:11 #

    Hi, Deltamarin,

    When do you expeted to be announced the start of the Titanic’s II building,? Maybe 1Q of 2020?
    I think the project would be a really inspiring experience iff the Blue Stars Line choose to build in Belfast , it would be incredible!! Thanks

    • Deltamarin November 11, 2019 at 13:16 #

      Dear Victor,
      We have been studying different alternatives during 2019. Hopefully we are in situation that yard will be selected during the first part of 2020.

  10. Cena November 2, 2019 at 02:46 #

    As it is now Q4 of 2019, do you have a more clear estimate of when the design phase for Titanic II will be completed?

    • Deltamarin November 11, 2019 at 13:18 #

      Dear Matthew,
      We have been studying different alternatives during 2019 and the design is still ongoing. Hopefully we are in situation that the yard will be selected during the first part of 2020.

  11. alfie law November 9, 2019 at 18:04 #

    are you guys still working on the project I need to know is it canceled or not and will it launch in 2020

    • Deltamarin November 11, 2019 at 13:20 #

      Dear Alfie,
      We are still working with the project. We have been studying different alternatives during 2019. Hopefully we are in situation that the yard will be selected during first part of 2020.

  12. Michael November 22, 2019 at 04:44 #

    dear Deltamarin, is there anything new on the design? notoriously on the number of portholes on deck C as on the original Titanic on the bow and stern of the Titanic ll? and will there be gates for disimulated lifeboats as you envisioned? if so it would give even more the impression of seeing the original and incredible ..

    • Deltamarin December 16, 2019 at 12:44 #

      Dear Michael,
      Design work is going on. Due to confidential reasons between Deltamarin and Blue Star Line such detail questions will have to be placed to the shipowner.

  13. Filipe November 29, 2019 at 22:26 #

    It´s possible to start building it at 2020?

    • Deltamarin December 16, 2019 at 12:47 #

      Dear Filipe,
      Due to confidential reasons between Deltamarin and Blue Star Line such questions have to be placed to the ships owner who makes the decision.

  14. Bruce December 7, 2019 at 15:01 #

    When will construction start ?

    • Deltamarin December 16, 2019 at 12:48 #

      Dear Bruce,
      Due to confidential reasons between Deltamarin and Blue Star Line such questions have to be placed to the ships owner who makes the decisions.

  15. Malcolm Oliver December 14, 2019 at 20:59 #

    Dear Deltamarin,

    So it’s the end of Q4. Have you finished the design of Titanic II?

    Merry Christmas!

    • Deltamarin December 16, 2019 at 13:09 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      Design work is still going on and will also continue after the shipbuilding contract.

      Merry Christmas to all Titanic fans as well!

  16. Helge Kåre Fauskanger January 21, 2020 at 02:14 #

    We are now in Q1 of 2020. Did you essentially complete the design work in Q4 of 2019, as you expected to do? Is the project now at the stage where a shipyard can, in principle, be selected if the owner so decides?

    • Deltamarin January 22, 2020 at 14:35 #

      Dear Helge,
      We are still in the stage where we are finalizing the conceptual design.

  17. Malcolm January 30, 2020 at 02:06 #

    Hi Deltamarin, does these mean you are behind schedule?

    • Deltamarin January 31, 2020 at 11:01 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      This project is like any other passenger vessel projects typically are. The conceptual design phase often continues longer than possibly expected because new ideas, all different features and possible technical solutions are considered at this particular stage.

  18. Helge Kåre Fauskanger January 31, 2020 at 19:43 #

    If the design is still being refined, are you able to comment on the possibility of covering up the new lifeboat deck behind doors, something I understand SOLAS regulations would allow?

    Very many who have reviewed the (former?) proposed design have found the new lifeboat deck a most painful eyesore which undermines the very purpose of a “TItanic replica”, since it spoils the original design. Yet I remember that this was discussed in comments on your site already years ago, and then you did indicate that covering up the lifeboats behind doors was a real possibility to be duly considered. Have there been any further conceptual developments regarding this that you are able to share?

    • Deltamarin February 5, 2020 at 11:19 #

      Dear Helge,
      This is one topic among the very many others we have been studying. Unfortunately we are at the moment not yet able to release any details.

  19. Malcolm February 9, 2020 at 19:51 #

    Hi Deltamarin, are historians also involved in the design?

    • Deltamarin February 27, 2020 at 15:23 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      Historians are involved from the behalf of the owner to guarantee the authentic atmosphere of the vessel.

  20. Malcolm Oliver April 13, 2020 at 15:13 #

    HI Deltamarin, I hope that all of your staff are well? Has the virus caused work to be suspended on the titanic “?

    • Deltamarin April 14, 2020 at 14:16 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      Thank you for asking, we are well. The virus has not caused any suspension, the work continues.

  21. Hector Hernandez May 7, 2020 at 03:16 #

    has construction of the ship begun yet or is this project not going to happen? haven’t heard any news on progression of Titanic 2 since last year. i really want to see this project come to fruition. starting to think this just isn’t happening.

    • Deltamarin May 7, 2020 at 09:34 #

      Dear Hector,
      The construction has not yet begun. At the moment different building yards are being shortlisted. Unfortunately the situation due to Covid-19 makes the response time from yards quite long. We expect to get some responses by the end of Q2/2020.

      • Hector Hernandez May 8, 2020 at 01:25 #

        i have one more question, given the fact of everything you just told me. where should i go to receive updates of titanic 2 project once you guys start getting responses by the end of Q2/2020 once the project starts moving forward?

        Thanks again stay safe.

        • Deltamarin May 11, 2020 at 13:05 #

          Dear Hector,
          It is up to the shipowner Blue Star Line to decide when they want to release new information. This will probably happen when the final building decision is made and the shipyard is chosen.

  22. Steve May 7, 2020 at 18:45 #

    Hello Deltamarin,

    Can we expect the construction to start this year? Also, is Harland & Wolff of Belfast, UK (the original builders of the real Titanic) also one of the potential yards that will build the replica?

    Thanks. I really appreciate it.

    • Deltamarin May 11, 2020 at 13:03 #

      Dear Steve,
      At the moment we are not able to inform when construction will start. It is a topic which is heavily depending on the possible yard candidates.

  23. Hector Hernandez May 14, 2020 at 06:29 #

    Dear Deltamarin,

    Hope you guys are doing well. just wanted to ask, whats the progression the design of Titanic 2? is it nearing its completion?

    • Deltamarin May 18, 2020 at 14:29 #

      Dear Hector,
      For pricing purposes, outline conceptual design has been delivered to shipyards.

  24. Malcolm May 15, 2020 at 15:47 #

    Hi Deltamarin, so if you are shortlisting shipyards does that mean that most of the design of the ship is complete? I assume that you can’t get a price from the shipyard if you can’t fully tell them what the finished design is?

    I appreciate that you cannot reveal details of the deign, but have there been any significant changes or major obstacles to overcome?

    Once again thank you very much for providing this feedback opportunity for us ship fans.

    • Deltamarin May 18, 2020 at 14:31 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      The typical material shipyards needs for their pricing is outline conceptual design.
      After ship building contract has been signed, basic design phase will start.
      There has been many kind of challenges as always during the design development but we have been able so far to tackle all of them.

  25. Malcolm Oliver May 22, 2020 at 01:13 #

    Thank you for the reply Deltamarin. So how long does the basic design phase typically take?

    • Deltamarin May 25, 2020 at 11:01 #

      Dear Malcolm,
      Typically this varies a lot depending on many different things like selected shipyard, etc. Approximate schedule could be around 12 to 18 months.

  26. Helge Kåre Fauskanger June 2, 2020 at 21:56 #

    And the basic design must be completed before construction can start, even when the shipyard has been selected? Thus, even if a shipyard were selected in the late summer of 2020, nothing can be built before next summer or even the beginning of 2022, given a schedule of 12 to 18 months for the basic design work?

    • Deltamarin August 6, 2020 at 13:04 #

      Dear Helge,
      You are correct, normally basic design has to be completed before construction can start.

  27. Hector Hernandez June 3, 2020 at 22:57 #

    is the year 2022 still the launch date for Titanic 2? or is the launch date going to be delayed a further few years?

    • Deltamarin August 6, 2020 at 13:06 #

      Dear Hector,
      Unfortunately, we cannot reply to this. This all depends on the shipowner’s decisions.

  28. Hector Hernandez June 10, 2020 at 21:32 #

    will the ship be ready to launch by the year 2022 or will it be delayed once again?

  29. Alan M Parker June 22, 2020 at 08:16 #

    hi is titanic nearing any kind of construction?

    • Deltamarin August 6, 2020 at 13:07 #

      Dear Alan,
      The owner Blue Star Line will inform when the matter progresses.

  30. Mark Kardash July 19, 2020 at 18:09 #

    Hello. Are there going to be any new public announcements about the Titanic II any time soon? Thank you.

    • Deltamarin August 6, 2020 at 13:15 #

      Dear Mark,
      It is up to the owner Blue Star Line to decide when they want to make new announcements.

  31. Deltamarin August 6, 2020 at 13:21 #

    For further Titanic II enquiries, Blue Star Line advised them to be sent through their website bluestarline.com.au where you may either subscribe or contact them directly.
