Sailing BoatsFreedomModel 27United Kingdom
Prelude is a Freedom 27. These yachts have free-standing masts, a concept that has been well-proven over the years. Garry Hoyt, a champion sailor, created the unstayed rigs to give 'freedom' from the traditional sail shapes and the compression and maintenance issues associated with standing rigging. Prelude is a well-balanced yacht and sails well, the self-tacking jib makes tacking simple and easy. The boat offers an extraordinary amount of internal space for her size with the mast stepped well forward, just aft of the stem.
She is in extremely good condition, clean and tidy with nicely varnished woodwork together with the fore and aft battened deckhead makes the cabin very pleasant. The current owner has spent time and money on her in 2019, keeping her in tip top shape.
