Broker's Comments

I will start by stating the obvious and that is that this will not be the cheapest freeman 22 you will find on the market, However i do feel that once you read on and appreciate just what you are getting for your money I do feel the asking price to be justified.
We have a boat owned by a boat builder that has undergone several refurbs during her life. Most recently she has had a new Beta Diesel engine, a Pump out toilet with holding tank, new upholstery, hot water via immersion heater and a calorifier, heating in saloon and cockpit, New wiring and instruments, a spare outboard motor to drop on existing stern bracket and so on.
This boat has been refurbished with 2 in mind and is absolutely ideal for a couple. She has the benefit of added stainless grab rails for much improved safety and even a stainless upright pole in the saloon which is very tastefully sited.
The current owner had 2 hip replacements and it was this that prompted him in to addressing the safety aspects.
She also has a hard top over the aft cockpit which works very well, again ease of boarding and a useable area in winter with a catalytic heater.
She has a BSC until 2014 and is Broads Licensed until 2012. The owner is also confident there is little or no Osmosis present. The boat was last out of the water in June 2011 for an inspection as part of the owners maintenance schedule.
We often say "ready to go" but It has never been more applicable in this case.
Ideal as a safe and reliable starter boat or for a retired couple who need a retreat on the river with no additional spending needed.
This is by no means a typical freeman 22.
