Yacht price :



An excellent example of this very popular yacht. The ease of sailing this boat has to be done in order to be appreciated. And it has excellent sailing characteristics up or off the wind. Great for couples or small families who have better things to do than grind winches all day. This boat is in excellent condition and shows very well due to her fastidious owners refit in 2013 and constant upkeep. Come see this boat if you are in the market for an upscale cruiser in excellent condition. Located in the water, commissioned in Tax free RI with a slip available for the remainder of the season.

Brokers Comments

Refit masterfully accomplished by Freedom Yacht specialists at Warren River Boatworks in 2013. The owners have continually improved the vessel since then, fully yard-maintained at Brewer Cove Haven and Brewer Wickford Cove Marinas. Recent retirement plans have brought this fine yacht to the market. You will be hard pressed to find a more thoughtfully rigged and improved Freedom 38.
