They've been running these Titanic stories for at least 20 years - none have ever materialised - most are investment scams where they make elaborate plans, animations, pretty pictures and even lay down a bit of cheap steel - all to get international investors to hand over buckets of cash - before the company disappears with their money.

I'll be VERY surprised if this ever gets finished or sees water or ever sees a customer.

Ah. Not sea going, it will be permanently moored on the river (that'll teach me to read the first page in the article).
