The Freedom Pilothouse 39 is a great cruising boat: she sails extremely well, has a great interior layout, and is built to cross oceans.

Salsa 2 has recently received new white Awlgrip paint to her hull and she shows well. Her present owner has cruised her extensively but now age has resulted in her being placed for sale.

Dimensions
LOA: 39 ft 0 in
Beam: 12 ft 10 in
LWL: 31 ft 0 in
Maximum Draft: 5 ft 6 in
Displacement: 18500 lbs
Ballast: 5300 lbs

Tanks
Fresh Water Tanks: 2 Plastic (80 Gallons)
Fuel Tanks: 2 Aluminum (50 Gallons)
Holding Tanks: 1 (30 Gallons)

Accommodations
From the large cockpit the companionway leads via a spiral staircase to the main cabin with its raised seating area and below decks helm station. This layout is what is now referred to as a deck salon but the Freedom 39 was built before this design became common.

At the base of the companionway, the raised seating area is to port with the lower helm and navigation area to starboard. Forward of the main cabin is the large galley to port with the forward head compartment to starboard. Forward again is the forward cabin with a double berth.

Aft of the companionway is the owners stateroom with a double quarter berth to starboard with head compartment to port.

The interior of the vessel is extremely roomy and it is only really possible to see how large it is by actually going below! For instance, the headroom in the main cavin is 7' 6".

Salsa 2 has one 16,000 BTU Cruisair air conditioner (with didital SMX II controls) which is ducted to the main and aft cabins. Whiler this is sufficient for cruising, those planning to live aboard in climates such as Texas may benefit from an additional smaller unit forward.

Sails and rigging
The Freedom 39 rig is unusual but highly practical and effective. Utilizing carbon fiber unstayed masts (which have been proven by many hundreds of ocean crossings) the vessel is a cat rigged schooner with her forward mast near the bow and her main mast just forward of the main salon.

Unlike some of the Freedom yachts, the Freedom 39 has conventional mast tracks on the trailing edge of each mast. This conventional "mainsail" arrangement with fully battened sailsd and lazy jacks results in an easily managed yet powerful sail plan. All sail handling lines are led aft! Sails include:

  • Foresail
  • Mainsail
  • Reacher

Known repair issues
Some months ago Salsa 2 was under contract and a number areas of concern were raised regarding potential core damage in the hull. As a result the owner took the vessel of the market while these were investigated. The questioned areas and results of the investigations are summarized here:

  • Cockpit sole: saturated core
  • Aft cockpit lids; core is sound
  • Cabin top close to mainsheet traveller: core sound but evidence of previous exposure to water
  • Foredeck above forepeak: core dry but previously saturated
  • Transom and platform: no significant water incursion
  • Starboard hull at portlight: core damaged and replacement required
  • Port hull amidships: no core damage found
  • Hull below the waterline: no evidence of core damage when through-hull fitting removed to investigate
These areas were checked by taking core samples and were undertaken by an experienced yacht builder who has worked on this vessel. His report is available to interested buyers. Estimates made in early 2011 were approximately $7,000 to repair these items. While the seller is not intending to undertake this work he is prepared to make an allowance for these to be undertaken by the next owner.

Other items requiring attention

  • Adler Barbor refrigeration not working
  • Pressure water pump needs replacement
  • Radar not working (scanner may be stuck)
  • Through-hull valves need servicing
  • Propane regulator and solenoid need replacing
  • Oven door springs need replacement
