Blue Star Line Chairman, Professor Clive Palmer, appoints V.Ships Leisure as ship management services partner for his Titanic II project.

According to the Blue Star Line's press release, V.Ships Leisure is the world’s largest supplier of management and outsourcing services to the maritime leisure industry, and is the passenger shipping arm of V.Ships, a provider of third-party ship management and related services.

V.Group's primary customers are ship and other asset owners who deploy their assets worldwide including tankers, bulk carriers, gas carriers, chemical tankers, FSOs/FPSOs, containerships, cruise ships, ferries and super yachts. The company's parent, V.Group, was formed as V.Ships in 1984 by the de-merger of the ship management division of Monaco-based shipowner, Vlasov.

Titanic II is scheduled to be launched from its construction base in China in 2016, before her maiden passenger voyage retracing its original journey from Southampton to New York.
 
Titanic II will be a regular feature on the transatlantic route between the UK and USA,” Professor Palmer said. “This magnificent vessel is being constructed in memory of the heroic people who served on the first ship, as well as the passengers who sadly shared their fate. “We also want to recognise the artists and artisans whose skill, creativity and dexterity has never been fully recognised because of the ship’s limited service.”
