Luxury Yacht FREEDOM in for Dockside Repairs

On Wednesday morning, June 11, 2014, the luxury yacht FREEDOM docked at Great Lakes Shipyard for dockside repairs before continuing to Chicago, IL later that evening. Below are photos of FREEDOM in all her beauty.

The 229.66ft /70m Custom motor yacht ‘FREEDOM’ was built in 2000 by Benetti and last refitted in 2006. Previously named Reverie, her luxurious interior was designed by John Munford and her exterior styling is by Stefano Natucci.

Freedom’s interior layout sleeps up to 12 guests in 8 staterooms, including a master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, and 2 double cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 27 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience. Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout her living areas to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere.

Freedom’s impressive leisure and entertainment facilities make her the ideal charter yacht for socialising and entertaining with family and friends.

Built with steel hull and aluminium superstructure, she features an ultra-modern stabilization system to reduce roll motion effect and ensure the ultimate comfort throughout your charter vacation. With a cruising speed of 12 knots, a maximum speed of 14 knots and a range of 6000nm from her 177502litre fuel tanks, she is the perfect combination of performance and luxury.
