35' Freedom 35


FREEDOM is a beautiful example of this David Pedrick designed cruiser from the well-respected New England builder Freedom Yachts.   Many feel that the exterior and interior layouts on the Freedom 35 are the best available in their size and class.   Features include a swim platform, walk-through transom, self-tending sailplan, easy stairway access to the interior, aft head with stall shower, all stainless-steel opening portlights, skylights, and two extra-large staterooms. On FREEDOM a two speed electric winch makes sail handling a snap and the Flag Blue Awl Gripped hull is a real standout in any harbor.

 If the motto of simple is easy then the Freedom 35 is for you. Imagine no stays, no turnbuckles, no need to go forward just speed, safety and easy sailing, isn't it a wonder all boats aren't thought out like this'  FREEDOM is a yacht that has been maliciously maintained by her current owner. Recent canvas package, electronic upgrades and bottom job all add value to an already stellar package. The beautiful, varnished cherry wood below and the quality of the joinery work would cost thousands more to duplicate today.

If you are looking for an exceptional performer that is designed for short-handed sailing and offers sleeping for six then FREEDOM might be the boat for you. Call today for a chance to see her for yourself.

There are 2 staterooms. One has a vee berth and the rear stateroom has a queen bed. Both have numerous storage lockers for clothing storage. Both staterooms have doors for privacy.

Small fans direct wired move air throughout all cabins and lighting throughout is excellent. On the deck, she features all lines tailed back to the cockpit for ease of sail handling and an electric winch for raising the sails. Stainless steel grab rails along the deck allow for safely moving on the topsides. Stainless steel dorades allow ventilation throughout the cabins. She is equipped with a folding prop. The cockpit is huge and features a drop leaf table for outdoor dinners at the marina. Her hull is navy blue and in excellent condition which is polished to a very bright shine.


There are 2 private staterooms in the boat, one nicely sized v berth forward in a cabin with lots of light and storage. The second stateroom is aft and to the portside with nice opening ports and sit up lounge area great for reading. Both cabins have true double berths, storage, ventilation, natural light and lots of beautiful cherry cabinetry. Owner's family and guests will live comfortably below decks in all climate conditions with several opening S.S. ports. Just down the companionway, the galley is a "L" shaped and located to port. It features a gimbaled propane stove/oven/broiler combination outboard, double stainless steel sinks on the center line and a commodious refrigerated icebox outboard. There are several storage lockers outboard for provisions. The Yanmar diesel is housed under the center section of the boar with the weight down low and in the middle.

A 7.5' "T" shaped cockpit with seat cushions throughout has many special features including foot braces, easy access to the interior, and wide uncluttered side decks. Line of sight sailing is unbeatable. You would be hard pressed to find a better seating for both the helmsperson and crew.

Hull, Deck and rigging

FREEDOM's hull is dark blue with double white boot stripes and a white cove stripe. The deck is white with ivory colored contrasting non-skid. This is a very clean traditional look.

SELF TACKING Jib equipment and sail handling led to the cockpit. Tacking FREEDOM does not require any line handling, just turn the wheel to the new course. To transition from close hauled to downwind sailing, simply adjust the single lines controlling the jib and main. All lines lead through stoppers to the cockpit. The deck is clean and easy to maintain with NO TEAK beyond the step on the swim platform. Portlights, stanchions, grab rails,bow and stern rails,and cowl vents are all 316 grade quality stainless. Stanchions and double lifelines are higher than industry standard for added safety. Boarding gates to port and starboard. The cockpit includes a walk-through transom and easy access to the companionway stairs for getting below. Integral anchor locker on foredeck keeps mud and water from inside the boat. Built in stainless steel dorade vents add fresh air to the cabin even when the boat is closed up. The mast is the free-standing, carbon fiber spar for which Freedom is so well known. The main is fully battened and has two built in reefs which are fully set from the safety of the cockpit. The jib has the standard Camberspar for easy self-tacking and self tending and this will wing out automatically on a run. Ask the broker about the Freedom "man-over-board drill" and also the safety of sailing a Freedom dead down-wind. Sail cover for the main is recent and is integrated to the sail. The cockpit cushons are white vinyl. There is a rigid boom vang for extra control and safety and lazy jacks control the sail and sail cover when it's lowered. All sail controls are lead to the cockpit through clutch style deck stoppers and all sail handling can be managed from the cockpit on a two speed electric winch.

Freedom Yachts Rig Design

Freedom Yachts was the maker of the Freedom (sail) and Legacy (power) yacht brands. The Freedom sailboats have unstayed rigs, meaning that the mast is freestanding and not supported by the normal set of wires called standing rigging. Garry Hoyt, a champion sailor and noted maverick, created the unstayed rigs to give "freedom" from the inefficient sail shapes of traditional sloop rigs as well as to give "freedom" from the compression and maintenance issues associated with standing rigging.
