An early Yarmouth 23 built on the Isle of Wight specially for the designer, and now berthed in Bilbao, Spain.
The current owner has enjoyed some exciting voyages on her and has made a number of improvements, including a complete new set of sails and a full osmosis prevention treatment.
He has also said he will consider sailing her back to the UK for a UK based buyer
I have owned Freeboter since 2012 when I found her in France. I sailed her all the way from Isle de Ré (France) to Getxo (Spain). The first half of the journey was pretty tough but Freebooter took care of my mate and me, including a very long night in front to the bay of Arcachon (France) with pretty steep waves. I have enjoyed her very much since that day, investing a great effort in upgrading her with new sails and ropes (including a small genaker), and having her ready for longer trips.
I did sail a lot on the Cantabrico coast (Bay of Biscay) all year round; alone, with friends and with family, including young children. I did take trips to Asturias, Cantabria and the French border with her and always felt like I was sailing a bigger boat. She is incredibly safe, seaworthy and behaves very well when wind catches up from F3-
My sailing plan has changed significantly and therefore I am looking for someone that will take care of her as much as she deserves, and keeps her sailing regularly.
