Freelancer has been fully upgraded to new boat standards for rig, deck hardware, electronics & instruments, galley, electrical wiring, plumbing. tankage, bateries, you name it. She is in remarkable condition. Owner has reported upgrade costs in excess of $160K.

Freelancer is a rare find. She is a 1973 Tartan 41 with major upgrades to all her operating systems, electronics, interior furnishings, rig and gear. Her owner has been meticulous in addressing every single issue you might question in a vintage yacht. He describes the upgrade project as having taken her down to fiberglass and restored from there.

The restoration was extensive and included a new sub floor and cabin sole in the interior, a redesigned and rebuilt V-berth to provide much more headroom, custom cabinetry in the V-berth, the main salon and the galley, a redesigned head to accomodate tall crew. The entire plumbing system was repalced in 2011 and 2012. The entire vessel was rewired with a new electrical distribution panel. A raised cabin top forward of the companionway to give 6'4" headroom, and rebuilt decks. All interior lighting is new.

Her mast was taken down and repainted. A new Leisurefurl  roller furling boom and Forespar boom vang were installed and a custom fiberglass arch installed to take the mainsheet traveler our of the cockpit and provide a solid support for her new dodger. A new hard top was installed in 2012 to provide protection from too much wind, sea and sun. Her standing and running rigging has been repalced.

She was repowered in 2011. Her fuel capacity has been upgraded to 155 gallons in new stainless steel tanks to extend her cruising range.

Her interior fit and finish is easily comparable to a new Tartan yacht.
