Great liveaboard or cruising sailboat!  Only a few hours on rebuilt Yanmar diesel. 

The Freedom 38 is probably the smartest mid-size cruising sailboat ever designed and built. Simple to sail, simple to maintain, and simply a joy to cruise, this Gary Mull designed, Tillotson-Pearson built boat stands out as a timeless, excellent choice for coastal cruising. Fin keel, spade rudder, huge main, self taking jib, no standing rigging, lines led aft to the cockpit all combine to provide effortless, easy to control sailing performance.   Upwind sailing is a breeze. To tack, simply put the helm over.   Crash jibes are no issue with the very forgiving carbon fiber unstayed mast.   Wide, flat hull sections provide high form stability. This coupled with a flexible mast which bends off in puffs to depower the mainsail for less healing and flatter, more comfortable sailing.   Quality of build is excellent with a beautiful, hand fitted and hand crafted teak interior. Most furniture is glassed and tabbed to the hull and deck and there’s minimal use of interior liners.   Close examination of details and design will reveal why Ferenc Mate’ included Freedom Yachts and Tillotson-Pearson in “The World’s Best Sailboats".
