Magic Moments - Freeman 23 Hardtop

Post by magicmoments on Thu Jun 01, 2017 11:12 am

Hi all

Thought it was time I uploaded some pictures of MM as I've spent so much time and effort getting her into shape


Due to work and other commitments, I haven't even had chance to get out this year and it is nearly June so we'll see how much we get out this year.........

I am 'thinking' about selling her as I HATE the fact that she isn't being used and someone else could get so much pleasure out of her that I simply don't have the time for (you have all heard that before I'm sure and probably thought it yourselves.......) If you know of anyone who might be in the market for a 23, can you PM me and I will give you more details, as I say still undecided but for the right price but more important the right person..........

Hi all, I've had a few messages requesting further details so I've put some more details below.

I'm looking for £7995 ovno due to the work and new parts I've put in, that's a fair price for the condition and what else is on the market at the moment (yes there are cheaper but not in this condition).


For Sale - Magic Moments
Freeman 23 – Built 1974

Due to work commitments, I am reluctantly selling my 1974 Freeman 23 hardtop ‘Magic Moments’ which I have spent many hours and lots of money restoring and bringing her back to what I consider to be in good condition.

Magic Moments is a classic Freeman cruiser with the usual four good berths, spacious interior with a well-equipped galley offering comfortable and versatile accommodation.

In the cockpit area there is an original bench seat in excellent condition which runs the full width of the boat. There is a brand new helm seat and double opening doors leading into the cabin area.

There is a useful galley with sink, hob and cupboards, an original Freeman table to comfortably seat 4 with storage underneath and this area converts to a double berth when required.

There is a wardrobe and toilet compartment with Porta Potti (NOT a sea toilet which you can’t use in rivers) and there are V berths in the bow with an infill to convert this to a large sleeping area.


An ideal starter boat or a classic to be maintained and loved, a low air draft and economical engine making river cruising a dream (currently moored on the River Avon in Warwickshire).

Some of the features include:


  • External original fittings in good condition but some may need rechroming.

  • Original gelcoat with some minor cracking (easily repaired, job for this year), never been painted over !

  • Interior woodwork all original and in very good condition, recently varnished in most areas

  • New Window seals throughout

  • New carpets this year

  • Antifouled 2016

  • Serviced 2016

  • Has an excellent hardtop (with 2 covers - Winter and Summer)

  • Shore power operates three pin sockets throughout

  • Transom ladder

  • Original Freeman Davits (currently not fitted)

  • Humminbird fish finder / depth guage

  • Well maintained and serviced petrol engine

  • Gearbox recently serviced and in good condition
     


  • Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) Certificate until 07 August 2018
