The Malcolm Miller was commissioned in 1968 at the Aberdeen yard of John Lewis & Sons to a Camper & Nicholson design, She was co-founded by Sir James Miller, a former Lord Mayor of London and Lord Provost of Edinburgh and named after his son Malcolm. For more than thirty years she served as a training ship for the Sail Training Association and participated in the tall ships races. In 2000 she was replaced by the Stavros S Niarchos, rebuilt as a private yacht and delivered in 2004 to her new owners, who renamed her Helena C. In January 2012 she changed hands again and was towed to Gdansk in Poland, to undergo a complete refit at the Conrad shipyard. She was relaunched in 2014 and is pictured below at the start of the Halmstad tall ships race 2017
