So it's full steam ahead at one of Ireland's most popular visitor attractions as profits at Titanic Belfast increased last year by 63% to £4.2m.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, in the 12 months to the end of last March, more than 900,000 people visited the world's largest Titanic visitor experience in Belfast. This contributed to revenues increasing by 10% from £16.3m to £17.9m.

The 9% increase in visitors helped Titanic Belfast Ltd's pre-tax profits increase from £2.5m to £4.2m.

The visitor attraction celebrates Belfast as the birthplace of the ill-fated Harland & Wolff built liner that sank on its maiden voyage in 1912.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
