Broker's Comments

A superb example of the last design of the Freeman 23's to be built.
The hull and topsides are in original gelcoat that is in excellent condition as is the interior woodwork including the cockpit area.
The upholstery and carpets are new which look and feel superb.
The boat comes with a full inventory including a dinner service, china, utensils, saucepans and glassware
She has been lifted out of the water every 2 years for the hull to be polished, pressure washed and re anti fouled.
The engine is the 1100cc crossflow Ford kent design (by far the best option available).
This really is a boat that is well presented, the attention to detail is evident throughout.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
