Our family boat – Freedom – is a 24’ Atlantic City Catboat that hearkens back to an earlier age of sail. Catboats were designed in the 1840’s as magnificent small sailing vessels, made to ply the cool, open waters of New England. They were used primarily for fishing and pleasure craft because of their solid stability and ease of sailing. With mahogany woodwork below housing a spacious cabin and restroom, spacious seating on deck, and a billowing white sail flying above, we feel Freedom is the ideal boat for cruising with up to 6 guests on the picturesque waters of the Indian and Banana Rivers.
