19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

The Freedom Cat Ketch is a simple pleasure to sail – all lines run to the cockpit and tacking or jibing is easy as truning the wheel. Shoal draft allows “Wing & Wing” to go to quiet anchaorage and explore thin water coastline. Rigged to single hand. Decent windward performance and excellent downwind – and able to handle fresh winds with self vanging wishbone booms and freestanding spars. Sail wing and wing for excellent speed with the wind. The boat is in good conditon and has been werll maintained by the present owner with upgraded instuments and new stereo. New bottom job and professional fiberglass repairs done in May 2012 -Turnkey and ready to take a new owner cruising or daysailing. Includes coupon for haul and block in Carrabelle – good thru April 2013 – price lowered $2,000
