Remarks:

Developed from the very popular Freeman 22, the Freeman 23 is a foot longer, thereby providing a slightly larger cockpit and heads compartment. She also has a slightly squarer shape than her smaller sister, with no step in the deck. Offering comfortable accommodation for 4, and the wonderful ‘Freeman’ wood finish to the cabin and cockpit, the Freeman 22/23 motor cruisers remain ever popular throughout the inland waterways of the UK and Ireland and have an almost cult following! Without doubt, a ‘modern’ classic!

This well presented Freeman 23 has a recently installed diesel inboard engine and was the subject of a professional renovation immediately prior to the vendor’s purchase in July 2020. She is for sale due to a change of plans.

MOORING: Whilst this vessel doesn’t have a transferable mooring, it’s understood that short term mooring arrangements could be made at the current location.
