The fine sailing performance of a sloop rig combines with the ease of cat boat design to make this 32 the best cruising rig available.
The cat sloop rig is designed to sail in perfect balance under mainsail alone, something the conventional sloop never quite does. The small, self-tending, self vanging jib adds a degree of windward performance you'd never coax out of a straight cat. Yet it does so without adding the extra effort that most headsails require, because it's completely controlled from the cockpit.
Whether you're underway or at the mooring, there simply isn't any lack of comfort here. With standing headroom of 6'3" and 12'3 beam, the Freedom 32 is a big 32 footer. Nowhere is this more evident than down below. There are two totally private sleeping cabins, one very sociable main area, a workable galley and nav station and hot and cold pressure water with shower. The Freedom 32 is proof positive that a modern underbody, plus an innovative rig can provide stimulating cruising performance without a single sacrifice in comfort or ease of handling.
This very roomy boat has a three cabin layout, featuring a private owners stateroom aft. The aft stateroom has a large double sleeping area, ample storage and an opening portlight. On the aft starboard side is the head shower area. Moving forward is a great navigation station with lots of storage and room to layout charts. The L-shaped galley is on the port. The salon features a great U-shaped dinnett which converts into a double sleeping area, across is a staight settee that sleeps one. All the way forward is a large v-berth.
The interoir is finished in teak with blue cushions. The floor is teak and holly.
Hull is white with a double blue boot stripe and a blue cove stripe. The bottom is painted with VC-17. Large comfortable cockpit for the crew.
This is a very easy boat to sail short-handed, everything can be done from the cockpit. The mast is an unstayed carbon fiber spar. There is also a Hoyt gun mount pole sytem for handing the spinnaker. Sails include a main with lazy jacks and a blue cover, and a club-footed jib with a blue cover.
