Remarks:

Arguably the VW Beetle of the inland boating world with her almost cult-status, the Freeman 22 remains an ever popular choice for river cruising both here on the Norfolk Broads and throughout the rest of the inland waterways of the UK and Ireland. Following on from the success of the Freeman 22 MkI, the MkII version offers improved headroom and the distinctive step in her side decks, together with the beautiful traditional veneered wood and teak cockpit and cabin interior that Freemans are renowned for.

This Freeman 22 is for sale due to the passing of time and has been in the current ownership for some 20 years. Well looked after, and wintered ashore annually, she retains her original gelcoat finish externally which is in very good order. A good example of these supremely popular river craft!
