Freya is an exceptionally seaworthy, safe and comfortable go anywhere vessel which despite her size is simple in design and straightforward to sail. More like a small ship than a yacht, her capable and seaworthy design provides tremendous safety and inspires confidence in all weathers. On deck, her hydraulic steering allows fingertip control, electronic navigation and radar make passage making easy and the massively powerful electric windlass allows the anchor to be used very easily by one person. In rough weather, Freya’s heritage as a Baltic and North Sea fishing vessel comes into it’s own making her an extremely stable platform. Her 33 tons of momentum will smash through waves rather than ride over them and her deep draft, full length keel and deep forefoot design add to her overall sea kindly behaviour.
At anchor, there is no more comfortable vessel to live on. Her large deck areas provide lots of space and her enormous deckhouse, saloon, galley and cabins are an extremely comfortable place to rest after a long passage. Aside from the very well equipped galley, Freya has continuous running hot water in her pressurised water system, central heating via her diesel fuelled boiler system which feeds radiators throughout the boat and a full sized Miele washer/dryer tucked away in the heads. A full sized shower with a floor to ceiling ladder radiator for warmth and drying towels is a wonderful haven after a cold passage.
A 1000 litre fresh water tank means that 2-3 people can live at sea for several weeks and her 900 litre fuel tanks provide an enormous range under motor and fuel for the 15kVA generator and boiler. With the generator running, every electrical device on board (including the oven) can be run simultaneously and batteries can be charged quickly making Freya a very independent little ship. Many of Freya’s systems and equipment is over-engineered to provide numerous back up systems and exceptional strength throughout which is very comforting to know in heavy weather. She is a ship which will not let you down.
