    A New Titanic?

    Titanic II - a £500m project

    A South African millionaire is to present his plans to build a new version of the Titanic luxury liner in Belfast on Friday.

    He has already held talks with the head of the technical department at the Harland and Wolff shipyard, where the original liner, which sank in 1912, was built.

    After the recent Hollywood reminder, Mr Gous believes the romance of the Leonardo DiCaprio movie has inspired cruise line enthusiasts.

    'Titanic II' would be based on the old ship but it would be much bigger, in fact the biggest liner in the world - dwarfing its namesake, which sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

    Former Belfast Lord Mayor, Assemblyman Dr Ian Adamson, who had discussions with Mr Gous on his previous visit, said: 'This is not a pipe-dream. Cruising is the last resort of the millionaire in the 21st century, but all cruise ships seem to look the same. Titanic II, bigger and better than the original, but with its own famous grand staircase and luxury, would be a winner.'
