BLUE ROSE is a highly improved Freedom 45 from the pen of Gary Mull and Freedom Yachts, as a division of TPI. She is in great condition, having benefited from an owner who sailed her extensively in the Bahamas and New England and had done substantive refits and improvements. She is NOT a rode hard and put away wet yacht left for the next victim.
There are two great cabins, two en suite heads, and legendary ease of sailing make this an ideal cruising boat for taking a family or friends on a once in a lifetime sailing expedition.
Ready to sail at a little more than a moments notice.
Not a Freedom 45 to miss for the serious cruising enthusiast.
