Superb spacious Freeman layout, immaculate order with gleaming woodwork and lovely fabrics.
This boat has been very well looked after by its present owner for 30 years, the condition is amazing, not suprising considering she has only had 2 owners from new.

Broker's Comments

This Freeman is so rare indeed, she has only had 2 owners from new, with the present owner having enjoyed her for some 30 years.The overall condition of this boat shows the love and attention she has had over the years, and I suspect that no expense has been spared on keeping her in such condition. She has been laid up ashore each winter
and has been maintained by a renowned local boatyard. She has a recent special design canopy and frame which gives easy access on and off the boat. Te diesel engine has been serviced recently and she has a new 4 year boat safety certificate.
If you are looking for a rather special Freeman, which is totally original and in beautifull order here she is, 2 owners from new, beat that! Come and see her, she is out of the water and just waiting for the right person to continue the care and attention of this rare lady.
