Who invented the clipper ship?
Donald Mckay invented the clipper ship:)
The Cutty Sark is a clipper ship. Built in 1869, she served as a merchant vessel (the last clipper to be built for that purpose), and then as a training ship until being put on public display in 1954. She is preserved in dry dock in Greenwich, London. She was retired due to age and the cost of maintaining a large clipper ship as an operating sailing vessel.
