Why an Australian billionaire's Titanic ship could be doomed before it begins

 The idea of an Australian billionaire, Clive Palmer, building a replica of the Titanic has generated a lot of interest and controversy since it was first announced in 2012. However, there are several reasons why the project may face significant challenges and ultimately fail.

Firstly, the project has faced numerous delays and setbacks, including financial difficulties and legal disputes. The ship was originally supposed to sail in 2016, but has been repeatedly delayed, and the latest estimates suggest that it may not be completed until 2022 at the earliest.

Secondly, the cost of the project has been reported to be well over $500 million, and it is not clear where all the funding will come from. It is possible that Palmer may struggle to secure the necessary financing to complete the project, particularly given the current economic climate and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thirdly, there are concerns about the safety of the Titanic II, particularly in light of the original Titanic's tragic sinking in 1912. While the Titanic II is designed to be more modern and equipped with advanced safety features, some experts have questioned whether it will be able to withstand the extreme weather conditions and rough seas that it may encounter on its transatlantic journeys.

Finally, there are also questions about whether there is enough demand for such a ship, particularly given the growing concerns about climate change and the environmental impact of large-scale cruise ships. It is possible that the Titanic II may struggle to attract enough customers to be financially viable.

In summary, while the idea of a new Titanic may be appealing to some, there are several significant challenges facing the project, and it remains to be seen whether it will ultimately succeed.
