Model-Ships.co.uk is your source for quality custom wooden ship models at discount price. We have a large selection of stunning model yachts and ships, including the CuttySark model ship. The CuttySark was a famous English tea clipper built in 1869. Clipper ships were used for the China tea trade prior to steam powered ships.
The original builder of CuttySark demanded the finest materials for all aspects of ship construction and soon went bankrupt, at which time Denny Brothers oversaw the completion of the clipper. CuttySark was first used in the tea trade, and later for transporting wool, sailing around the Cape of Good Hope with speeds that ranged from 79 days to her fastest run in 69 days for the round trip journey.
Subsequently, the ship passed through several owners and was renamed. The ship was eventually donated to the Thames Nautical Training College and later opened as a museum at Greenwich in 1954. As one of the last clippers of the tea trade, CuttySark is popular among collectors and people interested in nautical history and classic ships.
