Titanic II was a planned ocean liner, intended to be a modern-day replica of the Olympic-class RMS Titanic. The new ship was planned to have a gross tonnage (GT) of 56,000 while the original ship measured about 46,000 gross register tons (GRT). The project was announced by Australian millionaire Clive Palmer in April 2012, as the flagship of a proposed cruise company Blue Star Line Pty. Ltd. of Brisbane, Australia. The intended launch date was originally set in 2016, then delayed to 2018. As of August 2018, the Blue Star Line has made no official announcement regarding the ship's construction status.
