This beautiful yacht is one of America’s great historic classics that has stood the test of time. Christened on July 4, 1926, the 150th anniversary of the United States of America’s independence, FREEDOM is rightfully named.
From 2005-2009, FREEDOM underwent a complete rebuild at McMillen Yachts in Newport, RI. During this time the fantail motor yacht was brought back to her former glory allowing her classic charm to shine amongst modern-day comforts. The rebuild was recognized worldwide at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards where FREEDOM received the “Judges’ Best Rebuild Award”.
Showcasing a timelessly elegant main salon and a lovely aft fantail deck, the classic yacht offers generous lounging and dining spaces, which make her ideal for relaxing cruises and entertaining. Classic yacht FREEDOM welcomes 10 guests in five generous staterooms, which each offer their own charm. She features two queen-bed staterooms, two twin-bed staterooms and a bunked stateroom. All staterooms have their own private baths except for the bunked stateroom, which shares the head across the companionway.
FREEDOM is a first time public offering and a few shares of the yacht are being offered for sale to fulfill an opening in her unique “Partner Ownership” program. She is impeccably maintained, fully managed, and cruises seasonally from New England to South Florida and The Bahamas fully crewed every year.

FREEDOM, Contract #181, was the 2nd Mathis-Trumpy commissioned by Druggist, Mr. Aubert J. Fay of Boston and christened as FREEDOM on the 150th anniversary of the United States of America’s Independence. Mr. Fay cruised her between his homes in Lowell, Massachusetts and Miami, FL until 1933 when she was sold to Mrs. J.P. Donahue, daughter of department store tycoon, F.W. Woolworth who sailed her out of Palm Beach. In 1939, FREEDOM was again sold and re-named SUNSET, a name she kept through a succession of six more owners, until 2002 when she was acquired by her current owner and returned her to her original name.
During 2005-2009, FREEDOM underwent an exhaustive and complete rebuild by the experts at McMillen Yachts in Newport, RI who updated, rebuilt and renewed all of her systems and structure. Shortly after being recommissioned, this undertaking was recognized with a World Super Yacht Award – for Judges Best Rebuild, in 2010. FREEDOM one again sails seasonally between New England, the Chesapeake and South Florida / Bahamas fully crewed and impeccably maintained.
