Need ship ident STAT!

Saw the COOLEST boat ever while out sailing today. Ketch rigged, wishbone booms, bowsprit for the jib, and a hull kind of like an old square-rig ship, even down to the raised quarterdeck and rudder hung from the transom. Length seemed to be around 50', and she was pretty beamy. Fast, too. Anyone have an idea? Sorry, didn't have a camera, or I'd upload a pic.

What kind of boat is this, I MUST KNOW! (So, you know, I can imagine it's mine while I'm out in my little Venture 17!)

Is this it?



It's a 40' Freedom Yachts Cat Ketch.

Here's another one:

Our boat!

So I googled Freedom 40 to find a picture of our boat under sail, and I found a picture of our boat on your thread!

And we're all heading south in less than 7 days.

She was a fixer upper and badly neglected when we bought her. 3 years later, she now has a full cockpit enclosure with zip off panels, a remodeled interior, a kick ass water maker that runs off a Kubota engine (and puts out 40 gph) a huge freezer and fridge and a bow thruster (came with the boat but we got it working again.)

And my husband did all the work himself.
