Cutty Sark Ship Model

Scotland might be a nation known for its rich history in the maritime industry, but the Cutty Sark is especially legendary. Built on the famous River Clyde in 1869, it was the work of top craftsman of the era. It served as one of the fastest ships not powered by steam on the market and served as one of the quickest tea clippers ever built. Indeed, she held the record time for a British transport for a decade.

The Cutty Sark is a rich naval ship that comes with an immense history and performance. If you are serious about enjoying a more history-driven form of furniture, this ship replica is an ideal choice for collectors and lovers of history alike. At 1:76 scale, this ship model delivers the history and strength of the Cutty Sark right into your home.

Key features of this Cutty Sark model ship:

  • Highly impressive 1:76 scale Cutty Sark model ship with overall dimensions: 85 x 18 x 68cm
  • Made using as much detail and planning as possible, given the history of the ship.
  • Not a kit – this fully hand-built wooden model ship arrived ready to be displayed on arrival.
  • Made using high quality woods and metals to help ensure every piece feels authentic.
  • The model ship is designed to handle changes and adjustments in the climate too.
  • Sails are made using handmade fine linen and also various textures used for rigging lines.
  • Arrived on a sturdy and solid wooden base, complete with a metal name plate.
  • Laminated sheet included that comes with the history of your ship model, also.

A perfect way to display your Cutty Sark model ship with a hardwood & perspex display case specially designed for tall ship models.

About the Cutty Sark

As the name implies, the Cutty Sark is a ship with a very interesting history. Though it was made to design and improve trade routes across the sea, her journey is very interesting indeed. First designed in 1869, the ship was put together by Hercules Linton. She was a major part of Scottish shipbuilding and was designed for Captain John Willis. The Cutty Sark was a major trade model and was very fast despite her incredible size.

Indeed, she used to race with other ships to make sure that she could reach China and get her tea delivered first. Also, the Cutty Sark managed to get into rapid races with the likes of Thermopylae, doing so in 1872. The two ships left Shanghai together, on June 18th 1872, but the Cutty Sark ran into trouble. She arrived in London a week after its competitor, after losing her rudder when passing through the Sunda Strait.

Despite this, she was only a week short of her needed time – despite navigating the ship with a rudder of questionable quality. Even more impressively, she even managed to run from Australia to Britain in just over 67 days. It was, despite her size, a ship of incredible speed, reaching speeds as high as 666km in a single day.

The ship was eventually renamed the Ferreira, after she was sold to the Portuguese firm of the same name. She was dismasted, sold and then re-rigged in 1916, and was renamed again; this time the Maria do Amparo. She was restored to originality by Captain Wilfred Dowman who used the ship as a training ship.

The Cutty Sark was eventually moved to Greenwich, where she resides in a bespoke dry dock, in 1954. It’s now a major part of the naval display down there, still many people to look at one of the last truly great tea clippers.

Shipping & Delivery

We do not offer Free Shipping. It’s important to note that due to ordering from some specific suppliers, our delivery times may vary slightly between products. Since we don’t hold stock ourselves, we do rely on third parties. Occasionally they make mistakes meaning a product we thought was in stock may have just run out — in which case we’ll let you know just as soon as we can and explain your options.

Also, the delivery times are our best estimates only. Many things can delay your order, including freight delays, bad weather, customer location and the local post/courier service. If we do know there is a delay, we’ll email you as soon as we can with the updated delivery time.

Most commercial courier and postal companies we use to send customers' packages will in most instance leave your parcel at the property / address indicated on the order, in a safe, concealed location if it hasn't already been accepted by a resident. At times certain courier drivers may leave a note for the customer with a contact number to call and organise a suitable time for re-delivery or an address of the depot where the package will be left in order for the customer to pick up, if the driver could not find a safe concealed location at the property. This is at the discretion of the courier driver.

In cases where the customers' package/parcel is left at the collection depot and the customer has not picked it up by the due date indicated or the customer has not organised a suitable time for re-delivery, the default course of action is for the item to be sent back to the sender. If this occurs, all returned packages, will be subject to a 20% (of item price) restocking fee. Any subsequent re-shipping charges will also be borne by the customer.
