How many lifeboats were on the Titanic?

The Titanic was originally fitted with 16 davits, each with 4 lifeboats, which was more than enough for everyone on board. The White Star Line (Ismay) ordered the removal of three lifeboats per davit, leaving only 16 lifeboats, as the line claimed the full 64 lifeboats made the ship look bad. After the Titanic sank, her two sister ships, Olympic and Britannic, were both fitted with the full 64 lifeboats.

There were 14 wooden lifeboats with a capacity of 65 persons each, 4 collapsible lifeboats with a capacity of 47 persons each, and 2 rescue cutters with a capacity of 40 persons each, for a total of 20 lifeboats. There were also 3500 lifebelts aboard and 48 life rings, but they were useless in the icy water. Amazingly there were more lifeboats aboard than required by the Board of Trade. The Board of Trade only required enough lifeboats on board to hold 1,060 persons. Titanic's lifeboats held a capacity of 1,178 persons, more than required by law in 1912. This was because the lifeboat law was based on the ship's weight, not on the ship's number of passengers. Through this disaster, we learned that the laws need to be changed.

The Titanic carried only about 20 lifeboats, or enough to save about 1/3 of the crew and passengers on board the boat. It was originally designed to carry 32 boats, but the number was reduced because designers felt that the deck would be excessively cluttered. The ship actually had enough davits, or lifeboat supports, to carry 64 lifeboats, but most of them remained unfilled.

Titanic launched all of her twenty lifeboats when the ship sank (altho lifeboat D was a close one).

Of the 19 boats that reached her, Carpathia lifted 13.
Titanic carried 20 lifeboats, which wasn't enough to fit even half of all the passengers that were on board
Titanic is the only major vessel to sink after having discharged all of her life boats (Lusitania, for example, got off a few but dragged many others down with her). Therefore there is no lifeboats on the wreck of Titanic.

Several davits, however, have been salvaged and are on display in the traveling Titanic Exhibition.
The 20 lifeboats that ended up on board the luxury liner were approximately half the amount required to handle the potential evacuation of the more than 2,000 passengers and crew members onboard. While the managing director of the shipbuilding company, Harland and Wolff, wanted to have 64 lifeboats on board, the justification for omitting them was the concern, expressed by the Titanic's owner, that an excess of lifeboats would have made the ship less visually appealing
Titanic had 20 lifeboats (for 2,208 passengers).
