The Tall Ship Glenlee

Welcome aboard this historic sailing cargo ship of the nineteenth century. Glenlee was built in 1896 on the River Clyde at the Bay Yard, Port Glasgow by Anderson Rodger & Co. She is one of just five Clyde built steel sailing ships still afloat, and the only one in the UK. At 86 metres/208 feet long, the ship was powered by the wind alone, could carry 2,600 tons of cargo, and had a crew of just 25 men. You can find out more about the ship and voyages here. Glenlee is owned and maintained by a charity, the Clyde Maritime Trust, for the people of Glasgow and all visitors to experience and enjoy. We ask you to support us in maintaining this important part of mercantile, maritime and shipbuilding tradition not only of Glasgow but of global international trade.
