Freedom 33 Centreboard Cat Ketch Sail Boat
I have owned EMMA B for 11 years and keep her on our private mooring. She is set up for easy single handed sailing. She is sadly offered for sale due to a recent serious health issue. (I no longer have the strength or stamina to take her out).
Her ketch rig makes her simple to sail and she is set up for easy single-handing, which is how I sail her most of the time. She is in good condition and has been maintained regularly and well.
I hope to find an enthusiastic like-minded sailor who understands the unique characteristics of the Freedom design and who will get as much enjoyment from owning her as I have.
If you would like more information about Emma B or would like to come down for an inspection please call me on ******** 347.
