Broker's Comments

This is by far the best Freeman 26 I have ever seen. Having undergone a full refit in 2006 using material as per original this really is a supreme example. The hull was treated for osmosis at the same time totalling a spend of £20k.
The canopy was new in 2010 and she has had a Stainless Steel bathing platform and pulpit, along with new upholstery in 2011.
A larger rudder has also been fitted to improve steering along with a conversion to fully folding windscreens.
The woodwork is also in excellent condition both in the cabin and cockpit. The hull is original gelcoat with no signs of damage.
she was last out out of the water winter 2011 where she was pressure washed, antifouled and the hull was polished.
In summary this is by far the best Freeman 26 I have ever seen, it has been meticulously cared for by the previous owner and this is evident throughout.
A truly stunning example.
