Freedom Yachts 45 Center Cockpit

Stunning example of classic freshwater cruiser that was Freedom showboat of the 1989 eastcoast boat shows and was built for a member of the company's board of directors.  This is one of the few boats built to ABYS standards, has brass plate affixed below the companionway hatch to attest to ABYS status.  Conceived by Garry Hoyt and designed by Gary Mull, the Freedom 45 is easily sailed by a couple without leaving the cockpit.  Mainsail can be raised or lowered or reefed from the cockpit.  This vessel is in bristol condition, better than new, with many upgrades added by the current owner who has loved this boat for 12 years, including awlgriped hull and deck, refinished brightwork and interior teak, new canvas, new upholstery, upgraded electronics, new refrigeration and trash compactor, bow thruster and furling boom with new main sail.  The diesel engine has less than 1200 hours from new.  The owner is selling because of retirement plans.
