The Freedom 40/40’s interior has a real big boat feel with spacious very private forward and aft staterooms and two heads.  The salon features a large L-shaped settee to port and a straight one to starboard.  Also to starboard is the nav station.  The J-shaped galley is fully equipped for meal prep at the dock and at sea.

The traditional wood interior and teak & holly sole is in excellent condition, exceptionally clean and odor free.  Operable ports and hatches provide plenty of light and ventilation.  The two zone HVAC system provides plenty of cooling capacity in warmer climates.

Sails and Rigging

The sails were replaced in 2011 and the running rigging has been updated since.  The lead wing keel and 13’6 beam combine for a stiff stable boat in varying conditions, however what sets this boat apart from other forty footers is the tremendous power generated from the working sails alone.  The elimination of spreaders and most of the associated rigging reduces weight aloft and allows for easing the fully battened huge main well outboard.  Control lines are led to the cockpit for short handed crews.  Hoisting the main is a breeze with the Harken Power winch while the Harken Batt Cars and lazy jacks make dropping it just as convenient.
