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.

Lying by the Mersey at Fiddlers Ferry, Warrington
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.
