Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

This Freebird is one of only twelve yachts of this design ever built by Northshore Yachts in West Sussex, UK and was built to be a fast, reliable solid boat. The hulls were designed to minimise wetting, give maximum speed, she does not lean and sails well to windward unlike other catamarans! The current owners took her from the UK across the Atlantic to the British Virgin Islands in 2000 and for 14 years they enjoyed sailing holidays on her. Since then she has been used as a charter boat.

She feels huge inside and has plenty of space to move around, the deep cockpit makes her feel safe especially is taking the smaller family members on board. She is equipped for long distance sailing or if you prefer just a relaxing weekend she can certainly cater for everyone's needs.

The current owners will be sad to see her go after she has become part of their family, they are hoping the new owners will love her just as much!!

Awaiting further photos....
