The Freeman 22 is a modern classic amongst inland motor cruisers, with the MKII (MK2) version benefiting from better headroom than the earlier MKI (MK1) model. Famed for her interior and cockpit varnished woodwork, and with the distinctive step in her side decks, the Freeman 22 MKII was one of the earliest production boats and is still highly popular throughout the inland waterways of the UK and Ireland. This well maintained and much loved example, which has been owned by the current owners since 2007, is unusual in still having her original gelcoat finish, having never been painted. Photos coming soon!

MOORING: The Vessel’s mooring on the southern Broads is understood to be transferable by arrangement with marina owner, and cranage back into the water for the 2017 season has been pre-paid for by the Vendor.
