RMS Titanic

The R.M.S. Titanic was called the ship of dreams, and some called her the unsinkable ship. It was the largest steam engine ever built in the world. She was the most beautiful and biggest ship ever to set sail to the sea. In the summer of 1907, Lord Pierrie, Harland & Wolf, J.

In addition to the life boats the Titanic carried 3560 life jackets and 49 buoys. On the 3rd of February 1912, the gigantic ship dry-docked at the Belfasts Thompson Graving Dock.
