How many boilers were there on the Titanic?


It is important to know that when completed, Titanic was 882′ 8″ long (268 meters) and 92′ 0″ wide.  Moreover, her draft (required water depth) was 59.5 feet.  The ship had 8 steel decks and a cellular double bottom.  There were 29 boilers on Titanic. This signifies that there were 24 double ended boilers and 5 single ended boilers.  Keep in mind that over 8,000 tons of coal filled her coal bunkers.  Not too many people know that on May 31, 1911, Titanic was launched into the Irish Sea from slip number 3 of the Thompson dry-dock at Queens shipyard for the final fitting.
