As featured in Ferenc Maté’s splendid book THE WORLD’S BEST SAILBOATS, this Freedom 30 is Gary Mull’s most sought after design. The freestanding carbon fiber mast and well balanced sails whisk the boat along beautifully with cleverly crafted running rigging and self tacking jib. This is the type of sailing you read about in magazines!

Sometimes referred to as a Freedom 30/32, this is hull # 14, a 30 footer drawing 5 feet, that is well equipped for truly enjoying sailing and keeping her crew safe and comfortable. She is fitted with a professionally maintained Yanmar diesel inboard engine that runs like a Swiss watch and even heats up water for the pressurized water system. Radar, VHF, GPS, digital speed and depth instruments are vintage, though help you along your way. The cabins down below are very comfy and airy due to the 10+ foot beam, plenty of ventilation and excellent cushions throughout.

Two issues need attention: a headliner replacement and two opening portlights need to be re-bedded.

She’s aged well and shows well, and is a very dry vessel; certainly a treat for anyone to spend time aboard!

Hop over to Jersey City, and have a look! Take the Liberty State Park ferry from Battery Park City, it leaves Manhattan at 1/4 to the hour.
