Broker's Comments

An excellent river cruiser with an excellent owners club! The Freeman 23 is a very popular solid little boat benefiting from a well thought design. This example has had several usefull additions and upgrades and is in good condition for its age. She is easily manouvred with positive steering and offers a good deal of space from a 23ft boat. |mechanically she has been very well cared for and the engine is one of the best I have seen in a boat this age.
