Sail No GBR F 733
Location Lymington
Year Built 2004

Built by Folkebad (Denmark) in 2004, the Nordic Folkboat is popular as both a racing yacht and cruising yacht, with a traditional classic look and sails like a dream.
Freedom is a proven race-winner in the Solent.  She is constructed in GRP fibreglass, with a wooden mast and jib-pole, and aluminium spinnaker pole.  After stripping all antifoul, refairing the keel, and repainting with epoxy, she has been dry-sailed this year.

Her hull and keel are in brand new condition, ideal for racing.  All topside woodwork was reconditioned in 2021, and looks as new.  She carries a fractional spinnaker, new in 2021, and jib and main are new in 2022.  The main halyard and outhauls were replaced with Dyneema in 2021.  She weighs in at 1960kg, less than 30kg over the minimum weight under class racing rules.  Comes with a spare cruising main and jib.  For cruising, a custom made infill creates a large, comfortable double berth.  Price includes a Harbeck road trailer and cradle in excellent condition.

Year Built 1965
Argo is an East German built Folkboat, circa 1965, builder unknown to myself.  Larch on oak frames, carvel, heavy gunwales with doghouse.
Bare weight is slightly heavier than UK built vessels of same vintage. The doghouse was originally covered in dark red canvas on roof section.
No engine in place- has prop shaft through to stern gland.
Hull in excellent condition given her age.
Have all internal ply woodwork for use as templates, same for windows and seating cushions.
Original wooden mast has been replaced before my time, with a Z Spars section(9metres plus) and boom.
Standing and most running rigging.
Main and jib
New Blakes seacocks (3 off) to replace originals (which I think I still have).
Rudder is off vessel at present
Hull is sitting on double axle braked trailer, uprated to carry full restored vessel weight- this will allow transport from present location.
This trailer will be surplus to my needs once Argo has been moved and I am open to offers as a separate sale if anyone interested.

She’s been in my ownership for the past 21years.

Fully rebuilt and commissioned sum 20 years ago, following a lengthy spell on the hard. (some 15 years). Full details available on request, supported by photographs. Including new keel bolts, new oak floors etc. entire new cockpit, coach roof etc…

I’ve just completed a major overhaul over the last 4 years (part time!) on the hard.

She is rot free and leak free and ready for a new adventure

Do not mistake this for one of the many aging wooden yachts out there that are down on their luck having been neglected and abandoned to their fate. This little Folkboat is fully restored. I’ve worked on her for 20 years. I know every inch of her. Inside and out. Structurally she is totally sound. Aesthetically superb.
The only area that lets her down are the sails. They are all past their best and would benefit from a new suit.
