Titanic Model Ship Medium Size
The Titanic, named by J. Bruce Ismay, was built in March 1909. In May 1911,
she was launched, which was a heavily publicized event. The Titanic was designed
to be a marvel of modern safety technology and her accommodations were the most
modern and luxurious on any ocean. She was 883 feet long (1/6 of a mile), 92
feet wide and weighed 46,328 tons. She was 104 feet tall from keel to bridge,
almost 35 feet of which were below the waterline. She was capable of carrying
over 3500 peple, including passengers and crew. The Titanic Departed: April
10, 1912, at Noon from Southampton, England, narrowly escaping a collision as
the Titanics propeller suction snapped the mooring lines of another ship. Unfortunately,
at 11:40 p.m on April 14th, 1912, the greatest maritime disaster in history
began. During that night of heroism, terror, and tragedy, 705 lives were saved,
1502 lives were lost, and many legends were born.
