Tall Ship Profile: Stavros S Niarchos

First published in Falmouth Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta 2014

Stavros S Niarchos is a British brig-rigged ship owned and operated by the Tall Ships Youth Trust, formerly the Sail Training Association.

She undertook her maiden voyage in February 2000 and was the first new tall ship to be built in Britain for over 12 years.

It was in the late 1990s that the STA’s two schooners, Malcolm Miller and Sir Winston Churchill, began to show the ravages of age and became increasingly expensive to maintain.

It was decided to sell them and replace them with the Stavros S Niarchos and her sister ship, Prince William.
