General Details

This Freedom center cockpit ketch(first introduced in 1977) has a custom bowsprit which enables her to carry a jib and point to new destinations. Amoung her distinctive features are custom davits, a "hard dodger" and a "hard top". You can actually walk on the "hard top." The enourmous cockpit includes a double winged table for entertaining your friends, and drop down side curtains to make a full wrap around enclosure. The free-standing masts enable the sails to be easily set and handled. The free standing masts help lower the center of effort in the sailplan. You will have more "freedom" to gunkhole with a draft of 4'3" with the board up. This great cruiser has regularly served her owners well, and she is ready for the season!
