I'm in the process of buying a used boat and found a boat that woke my interest. I'ts a Freedom 35 Designed by Gary Hoyt.

Are there anyone out there who has any expeeience of such a boat ?

You find more information here : FREEDOM 35 CAT KTCH sailboat on sailboatdata.com.. More than 6000 sailboats, sailing yachts, dinghies and sailing craft listed.

The boat I'm looking at is this one : Freedom 35 ketch | Stockholm | Blocket

The rigg is a spexial one I've never seen before so I have my doupts

That Freedom model was , in my opinion, the worst boat they ever built. It is very slow. A friend of mine, big John, tried to race one to Hawaii single handed. He is a very good sailor and he was the dealer for Freedom. I think he dropped out of the race after three days. I have another story about that boat's performance but I think you get my drift.
