FREEDOM embodies the classic essence of the 1920s while offering all the comforts associated with modern cruising yachts of today.

This beautiful yacht is one of America’s great historic classics that has stood the test of time. Christened on July 4, 1926, the 150th anniversary of the United States of America’s independence, FREEDOM is rightfully named.

From 2005-2009, FREEDOM underwent a complete rebuild at McMillen Yachts in Newport, RI. During this time the fantail motor yacht was brought back to her former glory allowing her classic charm to shine amongst modern-day comforts. The rebuild was recognized worldwide at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards where FREEDOM received the “Judges’ Best Rebuild Award”.

Showcasing a timelessly elegant main salon and a lovely aft fantail deck, the classic yacht offers generous lounging and dining spaces, which make her ideal for relaxing cruises and entertaining. Classic yacht FREEDOM welcomes 10 guests in five generous staterooms, which each offer their own charm. She features two queen-bed staterooms, two twin-bed staterooms and a bunked stateroom. All staterooms have their own private baths except for the bunked stateroom, which shares the head across the companionway.

FREEDOM is a first-time public offering and a few shares of the yacht are being offered for sale to fulfill an opening in her unique “Partner Ownership” program. She is impeccably maintained, fully managed, and cruises seasonally from New England to South Florida and The Bahamas, fully crewed every year.
