Refurbished clipper 'Cutty Sark' (1869), re-opened 25 April 2012
On Wednesday 25 April, Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, officially re-opened 'Cutty Sark', the world's last surviving tea clipper and one of Britain's greatest maritime treasures, following an extensive conservation project, with major support totalling â”œÃ²â”œâ•‘25 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
'Cutty Sark' was designed by Hercules Linton and built by Scott and Linton at Dumbarton but was later rigged and finished for sea by Denny Brothers of Greenock in 1869. Measuring 212 feet in length by 36 feet in the beam and a tonnage of 963 gross, it was composite built, that is, wooden planks on iron frames.
