Tide 28 skippered transatlantic by the youngest ever single-hander

Michael Perham, the youngest skipper to ever sail transatlantic single-handed successfully sold his yacht at auction for £35k.

One of the celebrity draws at the Earl’s Court Boat Show pool in early December, the Tide 28, Cheeky Monkey, was auctioned on the website boatshed.com

Her new owner, Mr Frank Parker from London, is keen to get back into sailing after a few years off and was happy to see the proceeds from the sale going towards Michael’s next challenge, as he bids to become the youngest person ever to circumnavigate the globe single-handed.
