What Freedoms of this era do suffer from is gel coat spider cracks that are caused by the gel coat being applied too thick and the use of an unstayed masts where the forces are transferred through the mast base and deck partners only and not via stays and shrouds as on conventionally rigged boats. Thick gel coat is not as flexible as thinner gel coat and crack rather than yields to the changing forces. This is more of a cosmetic problem as the cracks very rarely are deeper than the gel coat itself.
I recently looked at a Freedom 25 with inboard. The bottompaint was in poor condition and quite thick. It had cracks all over it. In looking closer, I could see that the cracks in the paint were caused by cracks in the gelcoat. This was all over the bottom below the waterline. There were also stress cracks radiating from around the prop shaft strut. I wouldn't call this cosmetic. Those cracks are potential water entry points. I would have had to get the bottom blasted and epoxy coated.
I was also not too sure about the mast. It had circumferential cracking at about 1" intervals all the way up the mast. I have read why this happens, but not sure I would want such a mast. Apparentlt the mast builder also made flagpoles and lost a lot of money when they started failing.
There were a couple of other issues with the boat itself, a very poor trailer and a way too high asking price for the condition.
Too bad, I liked the concept and it is a pretty boat. But this was not a boat I could buy and love. (Having sold my excellent 32 footer, I was looking for something that I could single hand if need be.)
