Broker's Comments

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

This Freeman 23 is in superb condition inside and out, probably the best I have seen in my time as a Boatshed broker. I have sold lots of Freemans over the years but this boat is truly beautiful, an absolute credit to her owners. She has a recent cockpit canopy, a Freeman helm seat, with a second co pilot seat, a Freeman steering wheel with protective cover, freeman mast and flags, everything on this boat is Freeman! Spacious cockpit with quality seating and flooring, the cabin is in the true John Freeman style with quality fabrics, curtains and loads of varnished woodwork. Fully equipped galley with cooker sink and water supply, (fridge housed in cockpit), separate heads compartment with sea toilet and holding tank, good sized dinette with table and seating for 4, (converts to a double berth as required), forward cabin with again a double berth.
She is powered by a Ford Watermota engine, she has 3 batteries, one for engine starting and 2 for leisure purposes, she also has an inverter.
Usual fire safety equipment and a fitted intruder alarm.
To summarise a superb Freeman 23, frankly possibly the very best I have seen here in Norfolk.
New boat safety certificate to 2018
Broads licence to 2015
Superb side on mooring paid up December 2014 and transferable to new owners. (car parking near to boat)
Give me a call on 0781 832 7020 anytime and come and view this boat, you will not be disappointed.
