OWNER HAS RECENT SURVEY IN HAND. WOULD LIKE TO HAVE BOAT SOLD BEFORE DE-COMMISSIONING FOR WINTER. ALL REASONABLE OFFERS CONSIDERED.
This 1984 Freedom 32 is located in Barrington, Rhode Island and is available for showing by appointment.
The Freedom 32 was a transition boat for Freedom Yachts and designer Gary Hoyt. Hoyt’s idea when he founded Freedom Yachts was to make sailing simple and more accessible to those who had limited experience or exposure to sailing. By combining an un-stayed cat rig with modern fiberglass materials and construction methodology, the Freedom 32 accomplished this goal. Incorporating a clever vestigial jib, the 32 also includes a carbon fiber spar and the innovative gun mount, which allows the spinnaker to be raised and dropped from the cockpit. The 32 remained in production for four years and more than 90 boats were launched, making it one of the company's best-selling models.
The design is an intriguing option as a small but capable bluewater cruiser; many have made Atlantic crossings. She is a boat that is deceptively big, well built and cleverly designed. An easy boat to handle, own, and maintain. A very good couples boat, first time, or an experienced sailor. Whatever your experience level, the Freedom 32 is a boat to be considered.
IMAGine That has been well cared for and is ready for a new owner. The boat and machinery have always been yard commissioned / decommissioned. The boat is now fully commissioned for the summer of 2015, and the mooring is available for the remainder of the boating season.
A spacious interior is one of the added features of the 32. Includes two private double cabins, 6-foot, 2-inch headroom, a comfortable salon and a functional, seagoing galley. Ventilation is excellent and the quality joinery boats a warm, comfortable feeling interior, especially for a 32-foot boat. The Freedom 32 is one of the first boats to sneak a full double cabin aft, tucked under the cockpit, a design concept that would eventually sweep the industry. The aft cabin is to port and is entered from the galley. The aft cabin includes a hanging locker and adequate storage under the bunk. The engine is amidships, under the aft dinette settee, which also helps center weight in the boat. The salon area is spacious with a U shaped settee to port, with half moon shaped dinette table, and a single settee to starboard. The L-shaped galley features a two-burner stove and oven outboard, a large fridge/icebox and two good-sized sinks. Opposite the galley is a head with shower and just forward of that is a stand-up nav station, which allows for storage underneath. Forward is the V berth with hanging lockers to port and starboard.
