Biography


Malcolm Miller was built in 1967. Half of the construction cost was donated by Sir James Miller, a former Lord Mayor of London and Lord Provost of Edinburgh. She was named in memory of Sir James’s son Malcolm, who had been killed in a car accident. She was used by the Sail Training Association as a sail training ship.

In 2000, the Malcolm Miller was replaced in service by the Stavros S Niarchos. In 2001, the Malcolm Miller was sold and her new owners renamed her Helena C. She was rebuilt and redelivered in 2004 as a private pleasure ship. She crossed the Atlantic Ocean on two occasions.

In June 2008, she was damaged by fire while being refurbished, leaving one man with serious burns. In August 2009, the ship was moored to a buoy in Falmouth harbour, mastless and bearing the name Malcolm Miller. In November 2011, she was laid up off Tolverne on the River Fal. In January 2012, she was towed to Saint Peter Port and then to Gdansk, to undergo a complete refit at the Conrad shipyard. She was relaunched in 2014.
