Designed by Hercules Linton, this is a model “Clipper Ship” from the 1800s, the Cutty Sark, built in 1869 at Dumbarton, Scotland.

Through meticulous craftsmanship and precision, this replica of the Cutty Sark is expertly handcrafted to scale using only the finest materials such as western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. Drawing upon historical photographs, drawings, and original plans, the exquisite plank-on-frame construction method used mirrors the building process of real ships, resulting in stunning attention to detail.

Experience the sophistication of the Cutty Sark model, with its meticulously crafted plank on frame construction, two decks, and iconic portholes lining each side of the ship. Advanced rigging and hand-knotted lines secure the front bowsprit and three large masts, while hand-stitched sails made of fine linen adorn each yard. The front and rear of the ship are adorned with metal anchors and a wooden rudder, combining to create a truly elegant and exclusive ship. 

On the deck, there are authentic hand-built lifeboats with ribs and planks, metal steering wheels, wood ladders and windlass, captain’s dining and sleeping cabin, and many other handcrafted ornaments.

This model arrives to you with a solid wood base and brass nameplate, fully assembled.

Dimensions: 34" length x 12" wide 27.5" tall
