Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship built on the River Leven, Dumbarton, Scotland in 1869 for the Jock Willis Shipping Line. She was one of the last tea clippers to be constructed and one of the fastest, representing the culmination of a long period of design development that ceased with the advent of steam propulsion.
The opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 provided steamships with a much shorter route to China, which led to Cutty Sark spending only a few years in the tea trade before transitioning to the wool trade from Australia. In this trade, she held the record time to Britain for ten years. Advances in steam technology eventually allowed steamships to dominate even the longer sailing routes to Australia. Consequently, the ship was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. in 1895 and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until 1922, when retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman purchased her and used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth, Cornwall.
After Dowman's death, Cutty Sark was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College, Greenhithe, in 1938 where she served as an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954, she was no longer useful as a cadet ship and was moved to a permanent dry dock at Greenwich, London, for public display.
