Titanic began as just a vision back in 1907, when White Star Line envisioned a ship of immense size and luxury, to rival their competitors’ ships, the Cunard Line’s Mauritania and Lusitania.
Titanic was one of three vessel, the other two begin Olympic and Britannic. Construction of Olympic, the first of these new giant ships, began on December 16th 1908. The first section of Titanic’s hull was laid on March 31st 1909, whilst construction of Britannic would not start until November 30th 2011. Britannic would later become a Hospital ship, never carrying civilian passengers and instead served during the First World War.
In 1912 Titanic was the largest ship the world had ever seen. She weighed in a 46,328 tonne, had an overall length of 269 meters and a beam of 28 meters. Her 9 decks could accommodate 2435 passenger, served by 892 crew.

" Titanic has always fascinated me and without the ship, it is unlikely I would have ever developed my passion and love for ships, not to mention my ability to draw them. I remember watching the 1997 Titanic film many times and be amazed at how such a ship could be both engineered and built."
" From a very early age I knew I wanted to design or be part of a ship that would amaze the world. Although I no longer with to become a Naval Architect and have developed more of an interest in Business Management and the Cruise Industry in general, I still spend a considerable amount of time studying various ship plans and arrangements. "
" With such a connection with the famous ocean liner, it is of course very important that we commemorate this occasion accordingly, by assigning a brand new drawing of Titanic! "
