Broker's Comments

This is a lovely example of a well maintained and cherished Classic Freeman 23 MK3, which also benefits from a very nice farm mooring which is available to the new owner if they want it by separate negotiation with the farmer. The garden storage box is included with the mooring. The mooring costs around £300 a year and there is a private car park but there is no electric or water.

The boat had a good hull survey in July 2021 and was antifouled at the same time. She has a BSC until 11/2/2025.
