About this Sailboat:
1985 Freedom 21 FRESHWATER sailboat!
The unique Freedom 21 was designed by Garry Hoyt to be fast enough to race, comfortable enough to cruise and simple enough to singlehand. The easily stepped carbon fibre, stayless mast is positioned well forward, so that she is quite happy to sail with just the fully battened mainsail(like a large laser). Where wind strength permits, she can set a staysail (jib) or a spinnaker. The spinnaker is set on a unique swivelling pole making it very easy to control. The spacious and comfortable cockpit makes for great daysailing. The designer also enhanced the boats potential for cruising creating an impressively spacious cabin for a boat this size which comfortably sleeps four.
CONDITION: Moonshadow was last sailed during the summer of 2009 and is in good condition. There is some crackling of the gel coat on the deck where the mast is stepped. (see photo detail) She may be inspected at Crowleys Yacht Yard Lakeside at 3434 East 95th Street, Chicago, IL 60617 by appointment. To arrange an appointment, please contact Nautical Donations.
