Remarks:

This well maintained example of the highly sought after Freeman 22 MkII was built in 1966 and retains many original features including her wood veneered cocktail cabinet! She has clearly been well cared for, with her engine and electrics overhauled 2015, new toilet holding tank 2015, new window seals 2017 (making her a very dry boat), exterior repaint 2017 and much more. With great headroom (the MkII version having full headroom throughout, unlike the earlier MkI version) and comfortable accommodation for 4, the Freeman 22 is an understandably popular river cruiser and ideal for cruising the Norfolk Broads or other inland waterway. A true classic!

A part exchange for a sailing vessel (GRP or wood) would be considered.

MOORING: It’s understood that the vessel’s current northern Broads mooring could be available to the purchaser at a cost of £1,450 pounds per year. The mooring is privately owned and water and electric are available on site.
