RMS Republic Low-poly 3D model
RMS Republic was a steam-powered ocean liner built in 1903 by Harland and Wolff in Belfast originally for Dominion Line as Columbus, and lost at sea in a collision in 1909 while sailing for the White Star Line. The ship was equipped with a new Marconi wireless telegraphy transmitter, and issued a CQD distress call, resulting in the saving of around 1500 lives. Known as the Millionaires' Ship because of the number of wealthy Americans who traveled by her, she was described as a palatial liner and was the flagship of White Star Line's Boston service. This was the first important marine rescue made possible by radio, and brought worldwide attention to this new technology.
