Serge Testa

Serge Testa is an Australian yachtsman who holds the world record for the circumnavigation in the smallest boat, completing the voyage in 1987. His 11-foot-10-inch (3.61 m) boat, the Acrohc Australis, was designed so that all controls could be operated from inside enabling him to close the hatch in foul weather.[1] The boat now resides in the Queensland Museum at South Brisbane.
