  1. Harland and Wolff is actually still an active shipyard..It is more concerned with repairs then actually building ships..The sad thing is the yard would have built QUEEN MARY 2 for Cunard had it not been for the UK Government’s inability to help with the fiancing..H&W’s loss was STX France’s gain
