1980 Tillotson & Pearson Freedom 28 Ketch Sailboat in North Kingstown, Rhode Island

Stock #161034

This vessel is ready to sail! Equipped with solar, the boat is capable of supporting a liveaboard situation without having to start the engines to keep the batteries charged. Cockpit cushions will keep you comfortable while enjoying cruising in this beautiful two masted ketch.

The first half of its life was spent in the Great Lakes (freshwater) while it was owned by the Mexican Ambassador to Canada. The previous owner put in extensive work to restore the boat and its equipment.

The spacious interior, complete and functioning kitchen and clean head will surely make your cruising days a true pleasure. There is plenty of storage, a v-bunk capable of accommodating 2, and dual sofas that double as berths about the collapsible table. The interior design of the cabin is truly beautiful, well-lit, clean and open.

Information On Condition

The condition of the vessel is very good considering its age due to the extensive restoration undertaken by the previous owner. The current owner used the boat as a live aboard for the summer.

The sails are believed to be original but have always been maintained professionally and are in good shape.The portholes are not leaking and in great condition.

All doors and hatches for storage are intact and operable, and the same applies to the lighting.

The helm was found to be loose in the spring, so it was repaired/tightened.Two new batteries.

The previous owner put 2500 hours of work and $25,000 in material,including re-coring of decks (70%), all-grip decks
