Found on Wikipedia:

Although the novel was written before the Olympic-class Titanic had even been designed, there are some remarkable similarities between the fictional and real-life counterparts. Like the Titanic, the fictional ship sank in April in the North Atlantic, and there were not enough lifeboats for the passengers. There are also similarities between the size (800 ft long for Titan versus 882½ ft long for the Titanic), speed (25 knots for Titan, 23 knots for Titanic) and life-saving equipment.
Similarities between Titanic and Titan:

  • Unsinkable
    • The Titanic was the world's largest luxury liner (882 feet, displacing 53,000 long tons), and was once described as being (nearly) "unsinkable".
    • The Titan was the largest craft afloat and the greatest of the works of men (800 feet, displacing 75,000 tons), and was considered "unsinkable".
  • Lifeboats
    • The Titanic carried only 20 lifeboats, less than half the number required for her passenger capacity of 3000.
    • The Titan carried "as few as the law allowed", 24 lifeboats, less than half needed for her 3000 capacity.
  • Struck an iceberg
    • Moving too fast at 23 knots, the Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912 in the North Atlantic 400 miles away from Terranova.
    • Also on an April night in North Atlantic 400 miles from Newfoundland (Terranova) , the Titan hit an iceberg while traveling at 25 knots.
  • The Unsinkable Sank
    • The unsinkable Titanic sank, and more than half of her 2208 passengers died.
    • The indestructible Titan also sank, more than half of her 2500 passengers drowning, their "voices raised in agonized screams."
[edit] Differences between Titanic and Titan

  • The Titan does not strike the iceberg a glancing blow on a clear night, as is the case with the Titanic, but drives headlong onto an ice shelf possibly formed by the recent overturning of a berg, rising up and falling on her side.
  • The Titanic hit the iceberg in perfect sailing conditions, while the Titan hit the iceberg in bad, misty and foggy conditions.
  • 705 people aboard the Titanic were saved, while only 13 of those aboard the Titan survived.
  • The Titanic sank on her maiden voyage, while the Titan had made several voyages.
  • Titanic sank while sailing from England to the USA, Titan was traveling in the opposite direction.
  • The Titan sinks a ship before hitting the ice. The Titanic came close to an accident with the New York but did not actually hit it.
  • The Titan had sails to improve her speed;Titanic did not.
  • The Titanic was the second of three nearly identical sister ships; the Titan had no sister ships.
