Titanic Real Time

The thirteen lifeboats retrieved by Carpathia were taken to the White Star Line’s Pier 59 in New York.

The Titanic nameplates were removed by White Star Line workmen and the boats were inventoried by the C.M. Lane Lifeboat Co. of Brooklyn.
They were assessed for salvage at a collective value of £930 ($4,972) as the only salvageable items recovered from Titanic.


The ultimate fate of the lifeboats is unknown. 
They may have been taken back to England aboard Olympic, which left New York on 23 April 1912, before either being destroyed or quietly redistributed to other vessels.
