REVIEWS/ COMMENTS

Practical Sailor - Basic construction of the Freedom 33 hull and deck is, in our opinion, among the best in the production boat building industry. The Freedom 33 is stiffer (and, we think, foot-for foot, faster) than her sisters in the Freedom line The boat does have speed and liveliness that exceeds that of most out-and-out cruising boats of her size and in many conditions can rival the performance of the many so-called racer-cruisers or “performance cruisers.” The Freedom 33 impressive and innovative decor and layout, the stowage capacity is by far the best we have seen in a boat of this size. In particular, the huge galley drywell, incorporating a sliding section for seldom used items, is nonpareil. The engine (Yanmar 3GMD diesel) under the companionway is well above average in accessibility. The forward cabin can be completely closed off from the rest of the boat, including the head, by its own door.

If you want to turn heads in every port you enter, the Freedom 33 is the boat to do it. She will point at least as well as (or better than) any sloop her size. She tacks through 90 degrees and can point to within 45 degrees of the wind The boat sails much better than the average 33-foot sloop or ketch, and it is easily handled. This is a fast, comfortable, and capable sailboat.

Eric Sponberg NA Chief Engineer at TPI

TPI in 1980 were converting from aluminum masts to carbon fiber masts. Well-kept masts should last the life of the boat. There was plenty of safety factor designed into the rigs. The Freedom 33 in 1982 was converted from a center boarder to a keel boat. The centerboard took up too much interior room, and the overall weight was too high, and that is why we took the centerboard out and added the keel. The keel version is a much more sea kindly boat than the centerboard version. Boats with two-ply wrap-around sails will likely not be as weatherly as single ply sails with full battens. The MK I is popular in England as the Freedom 35
