Liberty is one of the Dictator-class Friendship Sloops built by the Jarvis Newman Boatyard in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Her original owner completed building her with superb attention to detail in all aspects. Her lines are directly from a working sloop built by Robert McLain of Bremen, Maine, for lobstering at the turn of the last century. She was built for stability and ease of sailing, which make her enjoyable sailing experience. With her clipper bow and gaff rig, she is a beautiful classic with a fiberglass hull. For the past 8 years she has been lightly sailed at a school on Lake Michigan. We recommend her highly.
