The Tide 28 made world headlines when a 14 year old boy became the youngest person to single handed sail across the Atlantic. This particular boat is the one the Father sailed in company with the boy from Gibraltar to Antigua via the Canaries, so is a well proven sea boat! She is now in her second ownership and they wish upgrade to a larger pilot house vessel. The sailing performance of this boat is much better than the Odin, MacGregor or Imexus. Six berths in an open plan layout with lifting keel, separate heads compartment, wheel steering, road trailer and more makes this a compulsive package.
