Freeman Mk2

Freeman 22 Mark 2 - (1964 - 1970)

The second Freeman production model was also 22 foot long and so became known as the Freeman 22 Mk 2 to differentiate it from the original Freeman 22.

The Mk 2 was to be an upgrade of the original design, whereby the cabin was raised so that you could walk right through. This change resulted in a distinctive step in the side deck

The typical factory specification for the Freeman 22 Mk2 was very similar to the Mk1:

Construction: Fibreglass Weight: 25cwt
Length: 22' Berths: 4
Draft: 2'-0" Fuel Capacity: 15 Gallons
Beam: 7'-6" Water Capacity: 15 Gallons
Headroom: 5'-10" Speed: 8 – 9 knots

Each boat was individually made, with owners sometimes choosing particular specifications for their boat, probably resulting in no two boats being exactly the same. As with the Mk 1, the Mk 2 could also be ordered in narrow beam form (6’-10” wide).
