Default Queen Mary News

From Maritime Matters Web site:QUEEN MARY 2 moves forward
October 8, 2000: Stephen Payne, Naval architect and project manager for Carnival Corporations QM2 project announced aboard QUEEN MARY in Long Beach, California, the design of the new Cunard Liner is close to completion. He demonstrated a profile drawing of the new giant ship. At a glance it's design appeared to be a combination of elements from FRANCE, QUEEN MARY and QUEEN ELIZABETH 2, but clearly the scale will put this new transatlantic liner in a class of it's own. Mr. Paine gave the following statistics: The uppermost deck will be as high as the original QUEEN MARY's funnel top. To be built in France she will have a combination of gas turbines and diesel engines and four propellors of the "azipod" type, two steerable two fixed, the gross tonnage is estimated at 150,000. The Southampton registered ship will be approximately 1,170 feet will feature balconies and will debue in October 2003.
