S/Y FREESIA (name reserved) is a modern cutter rigged sloop, designed by Ocke Mannerfelt. She is the largest custom yacht built by The Hinckley Company of Southwest Harbor, Maine. Belying her size, her carbon furling spar and hydraulic winches give her unique singlehanded sailing capabilities underway. Since her launching for the original owner 1993, she has had a full time crew and has been professionally maintained. Updated constantly, she has undergone major refitting in recent years to bring her to her present modern condition. She is completely ready for a new owner to take the helm.

Hull and Deck
White Awlgrip topsides
Teak covered decks
Hull is hand-laid laminate of vinylester resins reinforced with knit hybrid Kevlar/E-glass fabric. This DuPont Kevlar® composite greatly increases hull strength against collision and abrasion. PVC 1.5” foam core is vacuum-bagged into the laminate to provide the greatest degree of stiffness and thermal/acoustic insulation.
Deck is also Kevlar/E-glass with vacuum-bagged, cross linked closed-cell PVC core. The core is deleted and replaced with solid Kevlar/E-glass in way of all penetration and stress areas. Deck is bonded to a hull flange with reinforced polyester compound and through bolted. FREESIA has a raised bulwark with varnished teak cap rail in keeping with her offshore mission statement.
Decks are uncluttered and laid with teak, with custom stainless fittings, well-placed dorade boxes with storage, butterfly hatches, and a raised bulwark. They offer secure and comfortable areas for lounging, and for moving about while sailing offshore.

On the port side forward is a full head with shower and next aft is a luxurious guest cabin with ensuite head and shower. This cabin with twin berths was built for and used by a royal family while cruising.
The main salon is the full beam of the vessel with a gourmet’s galley to starboard. An abundance of storage lockers and cabinets, Force 10 4 burner stove with oven (2010) and a Hoove Ostin washing machine (2010) are just a few of the many features in this area.

S/Y FREESIA (name reserved) is truly a rare sailing icon. She was custom designed and built for one of the world’s most experienced yachtsmen, who wanted a vessel that had classic lines, yet embodied all the latest in modern yacht building and sail-handling technology. Her old world appearance, with butterfly hatches and raised pilothouse, has attracted admirers in the most prestigious ports of call around the world. While turning heads in these venues, she discreetly entertained royalty in and along the quiet coasts of Scandinavia.
FREESIA’s second, and current, owner recognized the unique qualities of this fine yacht, and during recent sailing itineraries, brought her back to Hinckley for both refit work and upgrades that truly enhance her rare provenance.
Only a change in plans now allows this hallmark Hinckley to be offered for a second time. She is truly a yacht that must be seen to be appreciated.
