Standard features

SV Bolero Freedom 40 Center Cockpit Cat Ketch
The Freedom 40 is an classic blue water center-cockpit cruising yacht designed by legendary marine architects, Halsey Herreshoff, four-time Americas Cup defender and sailing Olympian Gary Hoyt.
Simplicity is a virtue, rugged, unstayed masts have many advantages over conventional rigs; simple and easy operation, uncluttered decks, lower center of gravity, easy and much later reefing, better sail profile, etc.
Her Cat-rig very easy to handle from the cockpit (electric winch) and ideal for long distance cruising with a small crew, even single handed (Bow Thruster). Bolero turns heads wherever she goes with her rogue, pirate look.
Together with her spacious interior and many, many upgrades, Bolero is the perfect vessel for live aboard, chartering and long distance blue water cruising. Her retractable centerboard/keel (draft 4’4” to 10’8”) allows for steady off-shore sailing and the luxury of shallow draft for those hidden anchorages.

Her owner has sailed her from Maine to Florida, Caribbean and the Bahamas. She has happily crossed the Atlantic and is now berthed in North Carolina. Motivated seller due to health issues.
