The Freedom 45 CC is not only renowned for their build quality, but most probably more so, for the ease of handling and performance she gives as a true passage making sailing vessel. "Helena" can be sailed completely alone, or enjoyed with friends, a real ease and pleasure to sail, without a doubt. Generous interior accommodation should please the most demanding of sailors or invited guests aboard."Helena" also benefits from a superb hull and deck condition and the equipment would make for a very safe and comfortable cruiser/ liveaboard. The horizon could just be your destination.
