Not only did its tale lend itself to a blockbuster movie, it is the world’s most famous ship that ever sailed. The Titanic was built back in 1909 and took around two years to finish. She was not only the largest moving man-made object at the time, this ship was also the most exquisite.
The ship was the pride and joy of American tycoon, J.P. Morgan and built by the White Star Line. It took 15,000 men and 3 million rivets to hold her all together. Plus, even in today’s standards, the Titanic was costly – 7.5 million dollars!
The Titanic measured in at epic proportions. It was 882 feet long (269 meters) and was 175 feet in height (53 meters). It was powered by steam, with burning coal at the heart of the ship. And even though she had four smokestacks, only three where ever used.
