1985 Freedom 44 Centerboard Cat Ketch Ketch Sailboat in West Haverstraw, New York

Stock #175892

The Freedom 44 is an innovative design with two free-standing carbon fiber spars, a performance-cruising hull design by Garry Hoyt and outstanding construction and has won many offshore events while in full cruising trim with a minimal crew.

A centerboard design as well, only three such known to have been made, she has the added advantage of being able to cruise and moor in shallow waters, making her essentially the ultimate all-round performance cruiser.

The Freedom's unique self-tending Cat Ketch rig enables one to simply turn the wheel to tack, no grinding, and downwind could not be easier, a design that makes for a wonderful, short-handed, fast passage cruiser that can easily be handled by 2, but with room for the whole family.

Down below she has a warm, all wood interior with 2 private staterooms and two heads, one with shower, plenty of room in the main salon and sleeping capacity for at least six.

The galley features a three-burner stove with oven, plenty of counter space and storage, a double-sink and a large refrigerated ice box.

Abaft the salon to port is a large, comfortable navigation station, to starboard the aft stateroom with head and shower, and further aft to port a single quarter-berth.

Topside... what can you say? If you love the classic look of teak, you are all set as it abounds everywhere, the entire deck and cockpit, which is similarly ample and well equipped, with rigging terminating there for handling therefrom.

Half the quality of any vessel is in the owner, of course, and the current owner of over a decade has taken very good care of the boat with much refinishing and improvement since first sailing her home.

A truly unique vessel, big enough to cruise or live aboard, fast enough to participate in events or just get there quicker and easier, simple enough to maintain and built to last decades, it is hard to find a better all-round package that satisfies the needs of the adventurous explorer.

Tender included.

Information On Condition

The photos tell the story, the vessel appears in average to better condition for the age, the owner of quite some time reports that all the systems are in operational order, the sails in good condition and the running rigging in serviceable condition.
