rolo is on a distinguished road
My wife and I chartered the Freedom 30 from Bluepacific for a 4-day trip to Catalina in September. Neat boat, but nothing fancy. Very easy to handle due to sailplan with big fully battened main and small semi-self-tacking jib. Freestanding keel stepped carbon-fibre mast without shrouds, so you can let that main out all the way... great for running, at the cost of reduced reaching performance.

We were happy with the boat. The halyards were hard to get quiet at night due to resonance inside the large diameter mast though, might be a problem for sleeping in the fore cabin. The charter company was friendly and professional too.
