TheCutty Sark Trust

The Cutty Sark Trust is an independent charity taks with the preservation for future generations of Cutty Sark, the world's only surviving extreme clipper, as an icon of world maritime heritage, an inspirational museum and an international visitor attraction.

On 21st May 2007, fire swept through Cutty Sark; history looked as if it was going up in smoke. But, all was not lost, because of an extensive conservation project, less than 5% of the ship's fabric from her working life was lost. The recovery plan started within hours.

With help from the Heritage Lottery Fund and other donations, we had raised £20m out of our original £25m target. But the fire has added up to £10m to the bill. We now need new saviours to save Cutty Sark, a ship with a great past and an exciting future.
