    Built to last only 30 years, the 1869 clipper was in urgent need of conservation work by the end of 2006 when The Cutty Sark Conservation Project started. The ship is of composite construction, and so the conservation process is a complicated one! This is the biggest overhaul the ship has had in over fifty years and will ensure that no major work is required for another fifty years. The Project will not only conserve the vessel, but will also result in a greatly enhanced visitor attraction with exciting new exhibitions presenting stories from the ship’s eventful history. An inspiring learning resource, when re-opened Cutty Sark will bring the bygone era of sail to life.
