The construction of the enormous ship, a time longer than its cost, in which more than 23,000 tons of steel were used, 155 million dollars, and involved the work of 100 workers during six years, more than it took to manufacture the original.
Su Shaojun, the main investor in the project, decided to finance the daring 260-meter-long duplicate, to preserve the memories of the monumental transatlantic cruise ship. “I hope this ship is still here 100 or 200 years from now,” he said.
The Chinese replica is intended to be exact in every detail, from the door handles to the luxury bedrooms and the dining room. For this reason, experts and historians will validate the final result to approve the new copy of the legendary Titanic.
The Titanic sank in the depths of the Atlantic in 1912, after hitting an iceberg, leaving 1,500 dead.
