A century after 1,500 lives were lost on the maiden voyage of the ill-fated RMS Titanic, a brand new avatar of the ship is built in China.

Christened the New Titanic, the full-scale replica recently began construction in China’s Sichuan province, more than 1,200 kilometres away from the sea.

The Chinese company, Star Energy Investment Group’s 1 billion yuan ($145 million) venture is expected to enjoy smoother sailing than its original, as part of a larger tourist resort on the banks of the Qijiang River.
