Freebird 50 HUMMINGBIRD is a superb cat, built in the great tradition of sturdy, British oceangoing yachts. The quality of construction is outstanding both inside and out. The interior accommodation is fashioned of beautiful wood joinery that you no longer find on the "plastic fantastic" production cats of today.

The cat is handled entirely from the safety of the cockpit with a bulkhead wheel to port, under a full hard-top bimini and behind a generous dodger that gives you commanding views forward. Oversized winches and hardware provide total reliability of sail handling in all conditions. The mast is robustly stayed with inner forestay and split backstay and is just under 65 feet making the boat ICW friendly. 

HUMMINGBIRD is full of design innovations and common sense ergonomics. She offers a spacious three cabin, owner version layout. The owner's hull to port features a queen-sized island bed, numerous hanging lockers, a large vanity, a walk-in closet (literally) and a bathroom forward with a vast shower stall. The comfortable salon is ventilated by no less than 12 opening Lewmar hatches. The galley's countertops are long and wide; a gourmet chef's delight.

She is equipped with generator, large solar array, watermaker, two fridges and a freezer, washer/dryer to name some of the highlights. Water and fuel capacity are a whopping 216 gls and 210 gls respectively. 

If you are a serious bluewater voyager and have plans to travel far, this cat is a must see. The 50 foot waterline and high bridge-deck clearance will take you anywhere swiftly and comfortably. Please review the very complete inventory and photos attached for more.       

Some wise words from the owners below:

The most important characteristics of a cruising sailboat are safety and comfort...

  • Safety because you may have to face extreme weather and need the assurance that your boat will look after you in all conditions.
  • Comfort because most cruising boaters actually spend more than 90 percent of their time relaxing at anchor, rather than at sea.

Hummingbird was a new boat when we bought her 20 years ago and since then we have lived on her for 9 months of every year. We have crossed oceans and sailed in storm force conditions. At all times the well protected cockpit has provided everything needed for our safety. We have also lived outdoors in the Caribbean for 15 years and loved the comfort, space and stability which can only be found in a well built catamaran.

Our boat has many more years of wonderful experience to provide for her owners, but we are showing more signs of wear and tear, so for us, the time has come to sell.
