The Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship. Built on the Clyde in 1869, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion. The Cutty Sark spent only a few years on the tea trade to China before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years. The ship was badly damaged by fire on 21 May 2007 while undergoing conservation. The vessel has been restored and was reopened to the public in April 2012. She weights in at 963 tons and is 65 meters long. And is of a composite construction, ie wooden hull on an iron frame.
