Off Market since Aug 23rd 2018

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

"Singlehanded" is one of the most highly sought-after cruising designs. Gary Mull designed the free-standing rigged sloop to be handled solo, and the seaworthiness and ease of sailing have made this boat intensely popular. This gal was just refit in 2017, but is now being sold due to owner's change of plans. You have everything to gain from this boat!

Practical Sailor said of this model, "Probably the most distinctive thing youll be getting in the Freedom 36 is the ease of handling. We cant imagine how you could get a 36-footer that sails well and make it any easier to handle. A lot of the joy of sailing is making the wind work for you, and the Freedom 36 gives you more return for your labor than any other boat weve sailed."
