Unusually for a Tall Ship, the Stavros Niarchos  is for sale due to the often high running costs of operating a boat of this size.

Whatever her future fate she is the latest of a number of Tall Ships who have graced the West India Dock this year.

    Beautiful shots of the ship, Islander.

    I remember when she replaced the Malcolm Miller (now the Helena C).
