I have always had a great interest in the RMS Britannic, the third sister in the Olympic-class of ocean liners, which also included legendary RMS Titanic and RMS Olympic. Britannic was the largest and most improved of the three sister ships, with much-improved safety features and passenger facilities. She was also the largest of the three sisters, at 48,158 gross tons. Britannic was nicknamed "The Last Olympian", the "Forgotten Sister", among others.
Britannic was launched on the eve of the First World War and put to use as a hospital ship. Britannic could have done so much for the White Star Line and have given exemplary passenger service, yet her life was cut short by a German mine in 1916. After the war, Britannic's older sister Olympic was the last remaining Olympic-class ship in passenger service. Britannic was never given a chance to sail in passenger service because of the outbreak of WW1. That is the main reason why I want to rebuild her, to give her that chance to shine just as brightly as Olympic. Titanic's "Little Big Sister" would have been even more luxurious and safer than both the earlier ships, and would have given passengers the experience of a lifetime had they chosen to cross the Atlantic on her.
Replica Britannic will fulfill the dream of the Olympic-class liners. Please help me achieve my dream.
Replica Britannic would generate lots of media attention when she is ordered and throughout the construction process. Like her sister projects, the Replica Olympic and Clive Palmer's Titanic II, the construction of the new "Olympic-class liners" would be in the spotlight. Rival lines would watch the projects come to fruition and start planning their responses to these new luxury ocean liners. The Olympic II, Titanic II, and Britannic II would bring back the age of the "superliner" and begin anew the dream of a three-ship express service to New York. Let us hope that these projects come to fruition and someday in the future we may see brand-new Olympic-class liners sailing the oceans of the world. These three great Olympians will return...
