Broker's Comments

A wonderful example of the Freedom 39 Pilothouse Schooner, converted to Junk Rig in 2011, lovingly owned and extensively sailed by her current owners of nearly 15 years. A very spacious liveaboard blue water vessel. The rig has cambered junk rig sails on her unstayed twin carbon fibre masts and all lines are brought aft to the cockpit to enable single-handed sailing without moving out of the cockpit.

Last out of the water for new antifoul, anodes and service in May 2021.

British Registered, EU VAT/IVA PAID. May 2021 survey available to seriously interested parties.
