About this Freedom 40


Freedom 40, built 1984. From the design boards of Gary Holt comes this immediately recognisable and uniquely designed pioneering sailing yacht from the 80s. To those unfamiliar with the Freedom 40, the lack of standing rigging becomes instantly noticeable as soon as you step onboard, making for a far less cluttered deck. Westerbeke 42Four 39hp diesel engine (1991), Sleeps 4 in 2 cabins plus 3 in saloon. Located and ready for viewings at the Basimakopoulos Shipyard.

Construction

Blue GRP hull
White GRP deck with non-slip
White GRP superstructure
Centreboard swing keel
Transom hung rudder
Wheel steering

Owners comments
Purchased as a sail-away yacht in 1980 with interior mouldings fitted. The owner carried out subsequent interior carpentry to a professional standard. Classic layout with two forepeak bunks, toilet and washbasin (and shower) section, saloon, and galley vis-a-vis a large navigation table. Separate aft cabin with double bed.

Solid hull, no osmosis presence since a minor treatment in 1987. The vessel hit a channel marker in 1982, which took out a fist-sized chunk of GRP from the stem above the waterline. Repaired and
invisible now.

The foresail wishbone was replaced in 2007 after sustaining damage during an unplanned gybe in storm conditions off the southern Spanish. No other damage to the vessel.

Machinery

Westerbeke 42Four 39hp diesel engine (1991)
Estimated 1580 hours
ZF Gearbox
Shaft drive to 3 blade folding prop

Owners comments
An extensive set of spare parts will follow the sale of the vessel, including propeller anodes. Careful service was carried out by the owner, including yearly engine oil changes. Water
pump impellers, diesel filters, belts etc... all changed to the manufacturer's recommendation and logged on the boat.

The wiring harness of the engine was entirely replaced in 2009. The seawater to the primary cooling water heat exchanger was replaced with an OEM part in 2010. A new starter battery will be installed in May 2022 to allow test and demonstration runs of the engine.

Owners comments
The domestic power supply is 24v. All lamps are retrofitted to LED operation, with the
exception of the steaming light at the top of the mast. 24v is provided by two 12v l00Ah
standard batteries connected in series.

Solar panels are sufficiently sized to run the fridge and pressurised water systems indefinitely.
An Autohelm autopilot was fitted in the late 1980s but this is no longer functional and requires replacement.

Blue and With striped Dacron Spinnaker 1984
White Dacron storm jib 1984

Owners comments
Currently, Gazella is fitted with the refurbished first set of sails, manufactured by Dolphin Sails UK.
Sails are wrapped around, i.e. double layered and are much less stressed than modern Marconi rigged
sloops.

A set of newer wrap-around sails will be included in the sale. These are made from slightly heavier fabric and are more suited to windier locations. Mainsails are both equal in size, although not exactly interchangeable, and about 350 sq ft each in size.

They can be reefed by single line slab reefing, reducing sail area by about one-third. Typical reefing is to drop the entire mizzen and just sail by foresail alone.

Gazella can set an asymmetric spinnaker or light weather staysail from the mizzen top, using running
backstays to support the mizzen mast. Spinnaker is pale blue and white ve1tical striped, ca. 800 sq ft in
size. The light weather staysail is about 500 sq ft. A heavy-duty storm sail can also be set from the
mizzen top and requires the foresail boom to be dropped to the deck.

The freestanding rig with wrap-around sails and wishbone booms that are hoisted is an excellent low-effort rig, i.e. can be sailed with minimal winch use. The main winch is only used to pull up the last 25% of the sail. The rig is self-tacking, making upwind passages simple. Beam reach to downwind legs are best. The wishbone booms naturally steady the sails and provide superb stability.

Owners Comments
Most of the interior woodwork and carpentry were installed by the owner. Varnish is in good condition. Cushions were reupholstered in Turkey ca. 2014 and are in good condition. Lighting is both electric and by an Aladdin paraffin lamp.

Domestic

Owners comments
The "classic" Taylor cooker runs on paraffin. There is no gas onboard Gazella. The fridge compressor and cooling system is Isotherm from 2015 (replacing a previous 20-year-old Isotherm system). The pressurised fresh water system, hot and cold. Foot-operated saltwater tap in the galley.

Owners Comments
Gazella was intentionally rigged as a "low tech" vessel to avoid digital obsolescence in more remote cruising areas (read: Portugal 1980s and 90's). Navigation is paper-based and by portable GPS plotters. A reliable echosounder and high-quality compass will be included: no AIS, no radar, no anemometers and no onboard wifi.

An Autohelm autopilot was fitted in the late 1980s but this is no longer functional and requires replacement.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second-hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.
