Cruise across the Bay in style and comfort - or race with your friends on a proven winner.

This J124 is fast and responsive but has a beautiful interior for weekend cruises with friends. Decks are uncluttered and simple. She can be double handed, or fun for 8.

SPIRIT OF FREEDOM has had one owner who spared no expense on upkeep and maintenance. His new boat is in the slip and this one is priced to sell at our docks.


On the outside SPIRIT OF FREEDOM looks like a race boat. On the inside she has classic teak paneling, custom teak trim, and teak louvered cabinets that remind you she is also a weekend cruiser. There are 3 easy steps to the cabin sole, which is teak and holly. The settees on each side are comfortable seating for 8, or long enough for extra crew to sleep.

The V-berth is wide with room for two. It has a full teak door for privacy. On the starboard side is the roomy enclosed head with wet locker storage, the chart table with electrical panel above the ice box and 3 convenient drawers. On the port side is the efficient galley and the quarter-berth with line storage and master electrical switches.
