"The Freedom 21 sailboat was designed by Garry Hoyt for Freedom Yachts in
the early 80's. At least a couple hundred were built by TPI (Tillotson
Pearson, the JBoat manufacturer) in the 1980's. It is still
manufactured in England, and still much loved here in the States. It
is not a common sailboat, in any sense of the word. It is designed to be
fun to sail, easy enough for a novice and challenging enough for an
experienced sailor, an unusual combination." From previous
Freedom 21 Web site.
