  • By Jake Lamb
  • March 20, 2024

Princess Yachts F55

The Princess Yachts’ F55 is a flybridge cruiser focused on entertaining, space efficiency and sporty performance. It’s the second-largest model in the builder’s F Class behind the flagship F65. Impulse Power is a 2020 F55 listed with HMY Yacht Sales and has an asking price of $1.9 million.

The F55 is designed by the Princess Design Studio in collaboration with British naval architect Bernard Olesinski, Yachting previously reported .

Outdoor spaces aboard this 55-footer include a foredeck terrace with booth seating and sun pads. Side decks with high rails create safe passage from the foredeck to the cockpit where guests can enjoy alfresco dining at the U-shaped transom bench seat and folding high-gloss teak table.

33 yacht

Stairs to port lead to the flybridge, which has the fiberglass hardtop and with a three-sided enclosure on the forward half. The two-seat helm station sits to port, adjacent to an L-shaped sofa for guests enjoying the view en route to the next waypoint. The after section of the flybridge has a U-shaped sofa and a high-gloss wood folding table, making it a great spot to enjoy lunch with a view.

Impulse Power ’s aft-galley layout is a design choice that reinforces the yacht’s focus on entertaining. The 55-footer’s galley can easily serve guests in the salon and the cockpit. In the cockpit, a bar to port shares its countertop with the galley when the window is open. The F55’s galley is equipped with an array of appliances, including:

  • 4-zone ceramic hob
  • Combination microwave/convection oven with grill
  • Stainless-steel sink with mixer tap
  • Full height fridge/freezer

Princess Yachts F55

Forward from the galley and up two steps is the amidships lounge. Seating around the salon is positioned to help maximize views out of the nearly 360 degrees of glass. There is a U-shaped sofa to port with a high-gloss dining table. A two-person sofa is to starboard, which hides a 49-inch flat-screen TV, in case you need to catch the big game while you’re enjoying a weekend cruise with the family.

At the two-seat helm station, there’s a full electronics suite, fuel gauges, exhaust temperature and engine warning system, and rudder- position indicator. The navigation system includes VHF/RT, speed and distance log, an echo sounder with alarm, autopilot and a high-speed magnetic compass. There are also joystick controls, bow thruster, windscreen wipers, bilge-pump controls and trim tab indicators.

Princess Yachts F55

Belowdecks, all staterooms benefit from amplified hullside windows that enhance the sense of space. The full-beam (16′) amidships master stateroom has a double berth, en suite head, private dinette and a flat-screen TV. The forepeak VIP also has a double berth and en suite head. The final guest stateroom has single berths that convert to a double.

Powered with twin 900 hp Volvo Penta D13-900 diesels, Impulse Power has a reported 33-knot top hop and a cruise speed of 22 to 23 knots.

Some other notable features on board Impulse Power include:

  • Radio/MP3 with waterproof speakers

Marlow Hunter The 33

360 Marlow-Hunter 33 Virtual Tour »


The Award-Winning Marlow-Hunter 33 is a stunning sailing yacht. Keeping with the Hunter of yesterday’s signature window line gives this yacht the sleek feel of the latest Marlow-Hunters, but the improvements do not end there. The hull design has been improved, featuring a wider beam further aft as well as a more profound bow hollow. The result of this hull design is a longer dynamic waterline, which means more speed. The deck features a sleek, modern profile with large side windows allowing for increased interior light. The deck hatches are flush-mount, offering an enhanced look that complements the new profile. Lengthening the cockpit has allowed the Marlow-Hunter 33 to have a cockpit that is longer than its predecessor. The cockpit of the Marlow-Hunter 33 also features a fold-down swim platform that extends the already lengthy cockpit when folded down while the boat is docked or at anchor.

Extending the cockpit allows for a larger master aft cabin that features more headroom. Overall, the interior has been enhanced with a richer look and feel. Enhancements start at the sole of the interior which features a hardwood flooring look that accentuates the true beauty of the Marlow-Hunter 33’s interior. Corian galley countertops feature complementing stainless steel fiddles that not only keep items from falling off the countertops in a seaway but also serve as excellent hand holds when moving about below. The interior wood used for the bulkheads as well as cabinet doors has been rotated 90 degrees so that the wood grain runs horizontally instead of vertically. Not only does this add a crisp modern touch to the interior, it also gives the eye an impression of a larger interior space.

The salon features several intelligent enhancements. To starboard, the comfortable settee features a center section that easily flips up to create a convenient chart table. The beauty of this system is its robust design…and no moving parts to wear out! To port, the elegant dinette sports Marlow-Hunter’s unique Easy Lift system. With a few simple cranks, the dinette table lowers to form the base of a double sleeper sofa. Above, near the overhead, Marlow-Hunter has thoughtfully provided flat, fiddle-protected cabinet tops that supply even more storage space.

Sail away on a Marlow-Hunter 33 for $148,998.

Nauticat 33 motorsailer: ‘classic and solidly built’

  • Duncan Kent
  • June 8, 2021

Duncan Kent looks at this classic and solidly built motorsailer, the Nauticat 33, which promises comfort and reliable passage making

Nauticat 33 motorsailer

Solid and study, the Nauticat 33 was modelled on a traditional Nordic fishing boat. Credit: David Harding

Product Overview

The Nauticat 33 comes from a generation of yachts intended for sailors who prefer the comfort of helming inside and the advantages of motorsailing to reach your destination on time.

Although her wheelhouse is a veritable cocoon, its huge windows and hatches keep the crew in touch and in control.

Being a ‘double-ender’ with a generous, almost constant beam throughout her length, she is surprisingly roomy, making them popular liveaboard boats with both blue water cruisers working their way around the world and those closer to home just seeking a comfortable, spacious and characterful yacht.

Design history of the Nauticat 33

Nauticats were built by Siltala in Finland for 50 years up to 2018.

When asked by local sailors to build a 10m motorsailer able to cope with the worst ravages of the stormy Baltic, they created the Nauticat 33, its hull closely resembling a traditional Nordic fishing boat.

The MkI boats (pre-1977 with hull numbers 1 to 440) had a long shoal-draft, encapsulated keel and a wooden wheelhouse.

The following 59 retained the latter but had a raised poop deck with a second helm.

In 1979, an all-GRP MkII version was introduced (numbers 500 on), and from 1982 a deeper fin keel and skeg-hung rudder were offered.

In total, some 1,100 were launched over the boat’s 31 years in production.

Below decks

The Nauticat 33s are bestowed with warm hardwoods, creating a cosy feel below.

Rarely were two boats the same as Nauticat were happy to personalise the layout.

At the time, the Nauticat 33 had a larger internal volume than almost any other similarly sized yacht, which was, to many, its primary attraction.

Her beam remains fairly constant for two-thirds of her length, allowing enough room for two spacious cabins and heads.

Wheelhouse entry is via sliding side doors, which makes her vulnerable to breaking waves should you leave one open.

Entering from leeward when heeled isn’t easy either as the narrow side decks leave you leaning out over the rail.

Once inside, though, you are protected from the elements and large windows keep you in touch with the outside.

The Nauticat 33 has a wheel on the centreline and although her bulwarks rise going forward, they don’t restrict your view ahead.

An eye-level instrument console makes them easy to monitor and the engine controls are to hand.

There are wipers on all forward-facing windows and a clear hatch above for checking mainsail trim. In addition to the helm station, there’s a small table that can double as a cockpit table, surrounded by an L-shaped settee, and a single pilot’s seat opposite.

Beneath the sole is the powerful engine, commonly a 4.1 litre, 90hp Ford Lehman diesel, driving a fixed three-blade prop through a conventional shaft.

Service access is obtained by lifting the sole boards.

Steps down aft lead you into the aft cabin, which has a 2.1m/6ft 10in-long offset double berth and an ensuite head/shower.

Early models had a desk/vanity unit with a sink inside, but this was soon moved into the heads.

The hull sides were often planked and there is an abundance of stowage.

Linear Galley of the Nauticat 33

Lockers, shelves and drawers are plentiful in the linear galley. Credit: Nicholas Clegg

Three opening ports provide light and ventilation, but there was no overhead hatch as a means of escape from an engine fire.

Some had them retrofitted, despite creating a trip hazard in the cockpit. A modern ‘flush’ hatch would be ideal.

Stepping down forward from the wheelhouse brings you into the dinette-style saloon.

Early models had transverse settees each side of the table but this was later changed to a U-shaped settee to provide more seating and an optional double berth.

Headroom in the Nauticat 33 is 1.83m/6ft or more and stowage abounds in deep lockers above the seating, and in cavernous bins below.

A 450 litre/88 gallon freshwater tank is located under the cabin sole.

Opposite is a linear galley, comprising a deep sink with drainer, tall fridge and full-size, gimballed cooker/oven. Lockers, shelves and drawers are plentiful.

Moving forward brings you to the main heads/shower, opposite which is a large hanging locker.

The forecabin has two singles or a vee-berth, plus standing headroom without the infill. Again, there is bags of locker stowage above the bunks.

The Nauticat 33 has reassuringly high bulwarks, inspiring confidence when moving around the decks, although they’re a little narrow beside the wheelhouse.

Her foredeck features a large, planked bowsprit keeping the forestay well clear of her substantial ground tackle and bow rollers.

Cleats and fairleads are equally chunky and the chain locker is accessible from on deck.

Moving aft past the wheelhouse you step up onto the raised afterdeck which, in all but the first few boats, has its own wheel and engine controls, plus all the sail control lines and winches.

Nicholson 32 'Beduin' running past Ventisquero Italia of Cordillera Darwin, Brazo Noroeste of Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, Chile

Nicholson 32: an ocean-going pedigree that lasts

Built entirely out of GRP, the Nicholson 32’s ocean-going pedigree remains desirable to this day, says Duncan Kent

Halyards and mainsail reefing lines were generally left at the mast, leaving just the headsail sheets running aft to the poop deck and the mainsheet track within reach on the wheelhouse.

Some had removable benches or fixed seats, others were bare.

Later models had a proper cockpit with moulded GRP seating.

Both mainmast and mizzen are deck-stepped, stoutly engineered, and well stayed.

You need to be quick when close-quarter manoeuvring as her high topsides generate considerable windage.

She accelerates quickly, though, thanks to her big prop, and gives steerage almost instantly, but you need a plan for the prop walk!

She needs a solid Force 4 to really start sailing, but then she’s quicker than she looks.

Helming under sail from the poop deck is a little unnerving, due to the height above the water and the inability to see past the genoa, but the sturdy guardrails offer some reassurance.

The lead of the jib sheets rising up from the deck to the wheelhouse-mounted winches isn’t ideal, though, and you must remember to duck when tacking to avoid the mizzen boom!

Despite her hefty looks she only has a 29% ballast ratio, so isn’t as stiff as you might expect.

An ample beam gives plenty of space down below

When reaching the long-keel version in gusts over 20 knots, she feels a bit tender, despite tracking straight with her helm light and positive.

In these conditions she is better balanced with just her mizzen and jib hoisted.

With the long keel, tacking in light airs requires the headsail to be held aback until her bows are through the wind.

She heaves-to nicely, though, gently bobbing with the wind just forward of the beam.

The fin-keel version is stiffer, tacks quicker and the semi-balanced rudder reduces weather helm.

Off the wind, the drag from her substantial underwater surface area requires all the canvas you can muster.

Helming from the wheelhouse is easy, although you have to venture outside to trim the sheets.

In summary, the Nauticat 33 is an attractive and solid motorsailer that will cruise at around 5 knots.

Her high, bluff bows keep the decks dry and, should the weather turn nasty, there’s always that cosy, warm wheelhouse.


Owners experiences of the Nauticat 33

S/y darika (1986).

According to her owner, Steve Klietz, Darika is probably the only Nauticat 33 in Southeast Asia.

‘Being a late model, she has the GRP wheelhouse, fin keel, skeg-hung rudder and taller mast. My mizzen has a slightly raised boom to accommodate a custom-made GRP bimini,’ he explained.

‘She has one hanked-on headsail, the other furling, and my mainsail is manually hoisted with one reef that I’ve never used. I can also hoist an asymmetrical spinnaker in lighter winds.

‘ Darika is a great passage-maker. With 15 knots of wind, I can sail at five knots, more in favourable conditions. She also has a Ford Lehman 90hp diesel with which I can comfortably motor at eight knots (hull speed). In a 5-10 knot wind 30° off the bow, with just the main and mizzen up she will motorsail through anything at 7 knots/1500rpm.

‘ Darika has been retrofitted with two 300 litre stainless fuel tanks, giving her a range of 600 miles. Then I can add four 25 litre cans of fuel/water on custom foredeck fittings, plus two more in the engine compartment. She came with 450- litre freshwater tanks and I can carry another 100 litres in cans that can be refilled ashore.

‘Along with a bag of rice and a fishing rod I can carry provisions for a month. I have added insulation and a water-cooled compressor to the under-counter fridge/freezer and ice maker, and I’ve fitted a full-size, front-opening refrigerator where the forward clothes locker was.

‘I have removed the wheelhouse pilot seat and added a bathroom to the rear cabin with toilet, sink and hot shower. Some of the space gained now contains three more house batteries (giving me a total of four 120Ah deep-cycle house batteries) plus solar/wind charging controllers and extra switches and fuses.

‘My engine has a 160A alternator and I have five 120W solar panels, a wind generator, a 40A shore power charger and a 2kW/220V portable Honda generator. Normally, my solar panels run for 12 hours a day here in Thailand and my wind generator runs at night, keeping my batteries fully charged. I rarely start the generator.’

S/Y The Boat of Laughter and Forgetting (HN 1072, 1989)

Bruce, 60, and Shari, 56, Goldman have owned their Nauticat 33 since 2017 and have since fitted a bow thruster, holding tank and lazyjacks, plus renewed the sails, running rigging, anchor and chain, most of the plumbing and gas lines, and changed all the lights to LED.

Previous owners fitted dinghy davits, behind-the-mast mainsail furling, a wind generator and solar panels, and replaced the fuel tank and water hoses.

‘I started sailing in the 1960s with my parents on a 23ft Pearson Ensign and got my own boat, a 30ft Beneteau racer/cruiser, in 1997,’ says Bruce.

‘After 20 years, we wanted a slightly bigger and more cruising-friendly boat. Shari and I frequently day sail with friends and family on Lake St. Clair but we’re now outfitting and planning for summer cruises in the Great Lakes.

‘Even though the owner’s manual states that she sails best in a ‘fresh breeze’, she is surprisingly slippery and will make way in all but the lightest airs. In heavier airs, she’s perfectly fine under jib and jigger, sailing on her lines. The ketch rig allows for an easily handled combination of sails.

‘Although she’s a great boat for two I frequently sail singlehanded. The most difficult part is mooring. All sail controls except the vang are led to the aft helm station. The main and genoa are furling, and the mizzen has lazyjacks. Tacking in light airs can sometimes require a gybe instead or use of the bow thruster, and steering in reverse under power is always an adventure.

‘She’s very comfortable and the layout makes her seem much bigger. She’s airy and bright with four hatches, sizable ports and windows throughout, plus doors on both sides and a sunroof in the pilothouse. She has ample storage and the galley is spacious. We have diesel heating for the early/late season chills and aircon throughout for the summer. If cruising further we would install a bigger fridge/freezer, add a gate and swimming platform at the stern, and improve the aft deck with seating.

‘Nauticat 33s have distinctive ‘little ship’ good looks and are substantially over-built, providing a sense of security. She’s also very comfortable under sail and at anchor.

‘Her only negatives are the hydraulic steering, which gives no feedback, and the headsail sheets running from midship up to winches on the pilothouse roof. Also, other than in the aft cabin, our portlights don’t open.’

S/Y Artemis of Wareham (HN 518, 1979)

Nicholas Clegg, 64, has owned Artemis for the past nine years and still reckons she’s a superb vessel.

He started sailing in dinghies in his youth and then owned a motorboat before buying Artemis .

He now cruises the UK South Coast regularly with friends and is happy to sail single-handed, although he finds manoeuvring into a marina berth tricky due to her high windage.

Just after buying her, Nicholas stripped her interior down to bare bulkheads before installing a new galley, bunks, and wheelhouse seating.

He also fitted a bow thruster, together with new wiring and a modern electrical management system.

‘She’s a compromise between sailing performance (not being able to point too close to the wind), comfortable and spacious accommodation and the ability to motor well in light airs,’ noted Nicholas.

What the experts say about the Nauticat 33

Nick Vass B,Sc B,Ed HND FRINA MCMS DipMarSur YS,

Marine Surveyor www.omega-yachtservices.co.uk

Nauticats hold their prices well and represent good value for money when you consider the vast quantity of fibreglass and hardwood required to build them.

Vessels of this type are rare these days due to massive build costs and availability of teak and mahogany, so investing in and maintaining a Nauticat 33 could be considered quite environmentally friendly.

Fitting a new engine to a Nauticat is often more sensible than refurbishing a lighter constructed yacht that has become worn and tired.

Many of the Nauticat 33s that I have inspected have suffered from osmotic blistering.

I have also found softness and flexibility underfoot on the decks of several, especially around the forward and aft ends of the superstructure.

In these cases, the balsa core sandwich stiffening material had absorbed water and begun to decay, causing it to compress and not bounce back when walked upon.

Water enters the core sandwich through the teak decks’ slat screw holes.

Teak decks are expensive to replace so make sure that all the slats are sound, free of movement and rot, and that the caulking between the slats is good to keep the water out.

Also, ensure the windows are not leaking as water ingress can cause massive damage to internal joinery.

Some early 33s had timber superstructure so make sure that it is sound and free from leaks and decay.

The Nauticats were certainly in a class of their own, and they do vary quite a bit in terms of fit out, finish and layouts.

I’ve surveyed several that all had a common fault of mast compression; the causes of which can be manifold.

The boats I examined all had a slight lack of suitable support for the loadings; some just had a bulkhead that had suffered from overloading.

Water ingress had caused the bulkhead to start rotting. Two had compressions of over 10mm on deck.

My advice is to look carefully before buying; faults will be obvious if it is raining!

As Nick highlighted, many Nauticat 33’s suffer with osmosis and dry laminate under the waterline so care is needed at survey.

I’ve also looked at many which had soggy decks under the teak finish.

This is not a cheap problem to solve.

Alternatives to consider

High bulwarks make the Fisher 34 a solid cruiser

The popular Fisher 34 was first launched in 1978.

Designers David Freeman and Gordon Wyatt teamed up in 1969 to produce a range of boats that had the seaworthiness of a North Sea fishing boat and the sailing abilities of a long-distance cruising yacht.

The Fishers all had canoe sterns and long keels for directional stability, plus a deep-vee entry and pronounced sheer with high, flared bows and deep bulwarks to keep the waves out.

Renowned for their build quality, Fishers are all hand-laminated and incorporate a long keel with encapsulated cast iron ballast.

Hulls are solid GRP, while the deck is a balsa sandwich.

Bulkheads are laminated to the hull and deck, and the raised bulwarks are part of the deck moulding, topped off with 25mm-thick teak capping.

The deck/hull join is through-bolted and then laminated over for strength and water tightness.

The Fisher 34 has a traditional, cosy wheelhouse from which the vessel may be steered under power or sail, the latter made possible thanks to a large transparent sliding hatch in the wheelhouse roof.

As standard she was ketch rigged, but a sloop option was available with double doors opening aft into the cockpit.

She has a generous sail plan that, given a good Force 4 breeze, allows her to be sailed quite competently.

When the going gets rough and making way to windward is mandatory, however, she also boasts a powerful 75hp Yanmar diesel engine driving a large fixed 3-blade prop via a conventional shaft.

Below, they were fitted out to a high standard with oodles of lovely warm wood in the cabin and wheelhouse.

No space was wasted, with locker and stowage fitted into every nook and cranny.

Every Fisher was built to order, so a degree of customising will be apparent between boats.

The 34 can sleep up to six comfortably with a double forecabin, and double aft quarter cabin set under the wheelhouse and a double berth in the saloon.

Over 100 were launched in three models, the final MkIII being launched by builders, Northshore, in 1995.

Colvic Watson 34.5

The largest of these renowned Colvic Watson motorsailers, the 34.5 is a canoe-sterned, long-keeled ketch loosely derived from one of Watson’s lifeboat designs.

The hulls were moulded by the prolific Colvic yard on the UK east coast and the large majority were fitted out by their owners, so the finish quality can vary considerably.

Her decks have high bulwarks and a sturdy teak-capped handrail all round.

Ground tackle is usually substantial, with a massive windlass and samson post on the foredeck.

Unlike the Fisher, she has no cockpit or outside steering position, but this is rarely a problem with this type of vessel.

A few boats had fitted seating on the poop deck for relaxing outside at anchor.

Although not dissimilar in displacement terms to the Fisher 34, she has another 2ft of beam so her internal volume is extremely generous.

All featured a cosy wheelhouse with a raked screen, coffee table, wheel steering and chart shelf.

Layouts varied, but most had a spacious double cabin aft, a well-equipped galley, dinette-style saloon, and a twin or double-bunked forecabin.

Quite often they were cutter rigged with a long bowsprit plank, increasing her sail area and sail plan flexibility for ocean passages.

They certainly aren’t the quickest under sail, due mainly to their considerable wetted surface and heavy displacement, and neither are they very close-winded.

Her barn door-style rudder also results in a good deal of weather helm.

But her ample beam adds considerable form stability and stiffness under sail, and she loves gentle motorsailing to windward with her large diesel humming quietly at little more than tickover revs.

Beneteau Evasion 34

Launched in 1984, the 34 was the most popular Evasion built and was lighter and roomier than the earlier Evasion 32.

For a motorsailer she had a fairly performance-orientated hull shape with a long fin keel (or centreboard) and a skeg-hung rudder.

She has a good size cockpit with a full depth locker.

As with most wheelhouse motorsailers the decks are on the narrow side, but access is secure thanks to the high guard wires and well-placed grabrails.

There’s also plenty of clear flat areas for lounging at anchor and enough room on the foredeck for handling the substantial ground tackle.

Anchoring is easy with stout twin bow rollers, windlass, and deep chain locker.

Though not built for speed, her masthead sloop or cutter rig sail plan was large enough to provide an acceptable sailing performance, particularly as she was comparatively light for a motorsailer.

Plus, her 50hp diesel engine and shaft-driven, 3-blade fixed prop ensured she could be motored against a foul tide with ease, and over a good range thanks to her 200-litre fuel tank.

Down below, she is spacious and practical, with her extended wheelhouse containing a well-equipped galley, dinette that seats six and converts into a useful double berth, and an inside helming position with an aft-facing chart table.

Headroom is a generous 1.90m/6ft 3in.

Steps down from the wheelhouse lead to three cosy double cabins and a single heads with shower and wet locker forward.

  • Sailboat Reviews

Funny-looking to some, innovative to others, the Freedom 33 is certainly an unusual boat.

When a restless 40-year-old advertising executive with a background in one-design sailing (1970 World’s Sunfish Champion) went shopping for a cruising boat some years ago, he could not find one that made him happy. Conventional cruisers he found poor performers, needlessly difficult to sail shorthanded with their big headsails and complicated rigs, and with hull forms that demand auxiliary power any time the wind is forward of abeam.

It was in 1972 that this sailor, Garry Hoyt, set about developing an alternative. His alternative was the original Freedom 40. Discarding conventions one by one, he came up with a long-waterline, quasi-traditional hull form and a wishbone cat-ketch rig.

Then, to prove he had something, he took his prototype to Antigua Race Week and decisively out-performed the cruising boats with which he had been so unhappy. Granted, his talents as a sailor were considerably better than those of his competition and granted, his prototype without an engine had no propeller or aperture drag; nevertheless his concept gained a qualified validity.

In the intervening years Hoyt refined his rig and developed a whole line of boats: a 21, 25, 28, 39 (express and pilothouse models), and the 44. The Freedom 33 is no longer in production, having been replaced in the line by the 32, which is a single masted “cat sloop” with a self-tacking jib and gun mount spinnaker. More rig innovation.

Hoyt’s natural ingenuity produced the innovative boats, basic good luck led him to Ev Pearson of Tillotson-Pearson when he went looking for a builder, and his background in advertising let him create attention-getting explanations of his concept. His one notable weakness has been in marketing; until recently he tried with little success to bring potential buyers to the boat rather than putting together a dealer network that takes the boat to the public.

The US builder, Tillotson-Pearson, has been one of the most successful low-profile boatbuilders, putting together such popular boats as the J-Boat line and the Etchells 22 one-design. The firm has been a leader in the development of balsa coring for hull structure and carbon fiber for light, stiff laminates.

Unlike the situation with more conventional craft, selling the sailing public on the concept behind the Freedoms is a stiff challenge. The rig in particular is unfamiliar to most cruising sailors and for the concept to gain acceptance they need to be educated. Not only must they be convinced that the stayless masts, wishbone booms, and wrap-around sails are durable, they must be literally taught how to use them advantageously, For this reason reception to the idea has been mixed, and the appeal of the Freedom has been to sailors outside of the mainstream.


Basic construction of the Freedom 33 hull and deck is, in our opinion, among the best in the production boat building industry. From our observation as a result of examining boats both finished and under construction, we can detect no serious cost cutting or scrimping in the way of materials or techniques.

The Freedom 33 (as with other boats in the Freedom line) has a balsa-cored hull and deck. There are advantages to this type of construction—hull rigidity, thermal and acoustical insulation, reduction in hull weight—that we believe recommends it for hull structure provided it is properly engineered. In the case of the Freedom 33, we believe it is.

Lead ballast, 3,800 lbs, is cast in wedge-shaped pieces and fiberglassed into the bilge. The aluminum fuel tank (25 gallons) is also deep in the bilge. The centerboard, a combination of lead and fiberglass, is a hefty 1,200 lbs, also contributing to stability. The centerboard is the product of perhaps the most thoughtful design and engineering on the boat. It is pivoted in a channel, eliminating the need for a pin that breaches the hull.

Hoyt, with his eye firmly on performance, adopted an idea of designer Jay Parris for a centerboard configuration having a triangular profile and a constant chord. The design permits a centerboard with a shape that gives lift at any angle and, more importantly in reducing drag, a centerboard that fits its slot closely.

If the centerboard is not the most extensively engineered feature of the Freedom 33, then the spars are. Initially the Freedom 33 had two-part aluminum tubular masts that were heavy, reducing stability and increasing pitching moment. To help cure this weakness, Tillotson-Pearson undertook a research program into building one-piece spars using a carbon-fiber laminate.

The result is an approximately 30% saving in weight and considerably stiffer spars. The saving translated itself into markedly better performance, so much so that we suggest any buyer considering one of the increasing number of boats available with stayless spars should look into spar weight and stiffness.

Additional construction details of note on the Freedom 33 include a hull-to-deck joint through-fastened with 5/16″ stainless steel bolts and bonded with 3M 5200 adhesive sealant, a technique we recommend. Bulkheads are tabbed to the inside fiberglass skin, leaving the core intact to prevent hard spots from showing up on the topsides. The interior joinerwork, fetchingly of oak, ash, and spruce, is done to a high quality; our only serious reservation is discussed below.


Our evaluation of the performance of the Freedom 33 is in part the product of having spent a week sailing aboard the boat during Antigua Race Week. For comparison with that experience on the prototype, we recently sailed a production version, as well.

Freedom 33

For those sailors used to masthead headsails and conventional mainsails with their sheeting, reefing, and halyard systems, the rig of the Freedom 33 does require some re-education. Initially one has the impression that the boat is under-rigged and that the sailplan is inefficient. That impression is, however, deceptive. The boat does have speed and liveliness that exceeds that of most out-and-out cruising boats of her size and in many conditions can rival the performance of the many so-called racer-cruisers or “performance cruisers.”

The mainsail and mizzen are efficient in that almost all their area forms an effective airfoil. The wishbone boom permits a longer luff than a conventional boom and does not interfere with the draft at the foot. The wishbone does create windage, though. Draft control is easier with a wishbone boom through either outhaul tension (the Freedom 33 mizzen) or adjustment of the effective length of the wishbone (the mainsail). Similarly the wrap-around sails are more efficient aerodynamically than sails set on a mast track or groove which are in part blanketed by the spar section. Given the greater diameter of stayless spars versus conventional spars, the wrap-around system is important in this type of rig.

For performance, proper sail shape, adjustment, and trim are as vital for this rig as for more conventional rigs. There are still some aspects of the Freedom rig about which we have reservations but from our experience we believe the Freedom line has come closer to perfecting the system than any of its rivals boasting similar rigs. Incidentally, Ulmer Sails (in particular Ulmer sailmaker Bob Adams), has worked hard to develop Freedom sail shape plus reefing and trimming systems and we therefore urge buyers to order the sails offered as “factory installed options” rather than trying to find another sailmaker who will have to go through the extensive design exercise needed to provide suitable sails.

The Freedom 33 is stiffer (and, we think, foot-forfoot, faster) than her sisters in the Freedom line. Her sailplan gives optimum performance in a mid-range of wind strengths, say 10 to 15 knots. In winds below 10 knots, especially to windward in any chop, the stubby hull, with a centerboard and plenty of wetted surface, is sluggish. In fact, no Freedom is as lively as we would wish in lighter winds, a factor to consider in such areas as Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound. For such conditions we strongly recommend at least one mizzen staysail. Moreover, although we are not sold on poleless spinnakers (i.e., Flashers) for conventionally rigged cruising boats, we think they are superb as a mizzen spinnaker on a boat like a Freedom 33.

The wishbone booms and stayless masts combine to make the Freedom a delightful boat to sail with the wind from astern. The absence of shrouds lets the mainsail (and boom) swing forward of thwartships, encouraging her to sail wing and wing with the wind as much as 25 degrees or so off the quarter. Moreover, the sail stays out to windward in light winds without a preventer. Nor does it need a vang; the angle of the wishbone boom off the mast eliminates any tendency for the boom to lift. On a run almost any sailor accustomed to wrestling with blanketed or poled out headsails, cringing as his mainsail chafes on shrouds, and paranoid over the threat of accidentally jibing, will have to appreciate the Freedom rig.

Closewindedness is a relative term but a major attraction of the better modern designs. The Freedom 33 is not closewinded, as much as a result of her hull shape as her rig. However, she does not give away anything upwind to boats with shallow hull forms and long keels. Boat for boat she will sail by Morgan 41s, Irwin 44s, CSY 44s, Westsails, and their ilk.

The Freedom rig uses a slab or jiffy reefing system. Moreover, instead of the reefed portion gathering above the boom as with conventional sailplans the excess material gathers at the wishbone in aerodynamically messy folds. It is just not a rig that lends itself to simple, uncluttered reefing and we think finding combinations of reduced sail using staysails would be a better solution than trying to reef main and mizzen. Yet the present rig seems to have proven itself in offshore sailing. Several boats have made long passages without difficulty and weathered severe storms at sea with no breakdowns or crises. In fact, we sailed a Freedom 33 that a few days before had beat her way up Long Island sound in an easterly gale with gusts as high as 60 knots.

The sails are two-ply loosely connected at the leech. Furling is easy; the sail gathers into a basket formed of shock cord stretched across the wishbone. More shock cord across the top keeps the sail secured The convenience of this system, obvious as it may be, is one of the major recommendations of the rig, doing away with the onerous chores of conventional mainsail furling or headsail folding and bagging.

In all, we have been favorably impressed with the performance of a boat that experience and instinct tells us should be poor. The wrap-around sails take getting used to, but the more we played with them, the more effective they seemed to be.

Deck Layout

Other than to handle ground tackle or docking lines, there is no reason why anyone has to leave the cockpit of a Freedom 33 under sail. All halyards, sheets, outhauls, reefing pennants, and the centerboard pennant lead aft to the cockpit where they are handled by a pair of self-tailing winches (Barient 23s) and an array of sheet stoppers. Moreover, the cockpit is short enough so that anyone handling these lines can also keep one hand close to the steering wheel, a boon for shorthanded or singlehanded sailing.

The cockpit seating is deep and the coamings are unobstructed perches on the Freedom 33. Best of all, the cockpit space is entirely usable. In fact, because the mizzen traveler is mounted aft, the Freedom 33 is a distinct rarity among production boats—a boat in which the traveler does not threaten to squash one’s legs or the mainsheet garrote the crew. The feature alone makes the cockpit of the Freedom noteworthy.

The steering wheel on a pedestal is mounted well aft, the helmsman standing (or sitting on a fold-up seat) on a teak grate under which, uncommonly accessible, is the steering cable and quadrant for the outboard rudder. The grate also serves as the cockpit drain with scuppers through the transom, a most effective arrangement for quickly draining a flooded cockpit. A sliding door at the after end of the cockpit houses propane fuel bottles.

The decks and house top are uncluttered sundecks and lounging platforms. Sailors used to gingerly stepping around a conventional deck may feel disoriented—missing are chainplates and shrouds, headsail sheets and blocks, and a spinnaker pole.

The anchor sits in an optional fiberglass bowsprit. Man-sized chocks on either side of the bow and amidships are integrally fitted into the teak toerail.

Garry Hoyt’s forte as a designer is clearly in his ability to develop performance. It has not been in his ability to design an interior. The Freedom 40 originally appeared with a midships cockpit and an interior so broken into segments as to be a disaster. The public understandably could not accept an accommodation plan in a 40-footer that was best suited for a chummy young couple (that to go with a rig that already took a vivid imagination to comprehend). Marketplace pressure dictated an alternative version with an aft cockpit and more versatile layout and the present Freedom 40 is a more successful product.

Similarly the Freedom 33 was first designed with an aft cabin that reduced cockpit space and a main cabin that succumbed to, rather than accommodated itself to, the centerboard trunk dividing it. The present production version does away with the aft cabin, locates the galley conventionally at the base of the companionway, tucks a dinette (convertible to a double berth) to port of the trunk, and has a settee berth to starboard. The result is a main cabin laid out much like other production boats of comparable proportions.

By having her waterline stretched out to virtually the overall length of the boat, the 33 has exceptional roominess for her modest length on deck. Moreover, with her mast stepped close to the stem, her hull fullness has to be carried well forward to support the weight. The forward cabin with its V-berth is the beneficiary. Farther aft the roominess is deceptive, however, because the main cabin is broken up by a 5′ long, waist high centerboard trunk running down the middle and the mizzen mast rising at the after end of it.

Had Hoyt not had his eye so fixed on performance, he might have opted for a longer, narrower centerboard permitting a lower trunk that could be located where it would intrude little if at all into the main cabin. As it is, the centerboard does offer minimum drag, does not “thunk” annoyingly in the trunk, and is rugged. It also needs a trunk that makes casual conversation awkward and it makes the dinette a cul-de-sac, leaving the person on the inside no convenient way to get out.

The aesthetic impression created by the interior joinerwork is among the best we have had about any production boat. All the wood below—and there is plenty—is a combination of oak, ash, and spruce (plus the teak and holly cabin sole). We have long been critical of interior decor relying on dark woods such as teak and mahogany. The warmth and illusion of spaciousness imparted by these light colored woods will appeal to many sailors. It certainly does to us.

There is a place for teak below. Grab rails, companionway treads, the framing around hatches, and the trim in the head—all areas liable to wear and getting wet—would be better in teak than in woods like ash and oak which are subject to staining. Moreover, oak is less dimensionally stable than teak, so moisture may eventually affect the structure as well as the finish.

We have some further observations about the interior. The comfortably wide quarterberth to starboard has little overhead foot room. The pilot berth to starboard is accessible only to a person shorter than 4′ and weighing less than 40 lbs; it is either a luxuriously cushioned shelf or a berth for an agile ship’s cat. Both the chart table and the clever dinette table need removable fiddles, and the hinges on the chart table lid would be better recessed.

And we have some incidental compliments. The stowage capacity of the Freedom 33 is by far the best we have seen in a boat of this size. In particular, the huge galley drywell, incorporating a sliding section for seldom used items, is nonpareil. The engine (Yanmar 3GM diesel) under the companionway is well above average in accessibility. The forward cabin can be completely closed off from the rest of the boat, including the head, by its own door.

The Freedom 33 thus offers an intriguing dichotomy—impressive and innovative decor and layout offset to a disturbing extent by drawbacks that may justifiably turn off many buyers and give owners things they will “have to live with.”


The Freedom 33 is an interesting boat. She is, however, not a conventional boat and the concept behind her rig takes getting used to, especially for someone born and raised in the tradition of headsails, standing rigging, mainsails that ride on tracks, hulls with overhangs and aesthetic proportions, and other quaint qualities.

Boat Test: 2024 Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC

  • By Pete McDonald
  • March 20, 2024

Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC running offshore

I am a huge fan of taking RIBs offshore because their inflatable collars act as built-in shock absorbers in rough seas. So when the time came to test the Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I was hoping for some sporty conditions. As we approached the Port ­Everglades Inlet, the building stiff east wind ­buffeting against an outgoing tide ensured that my wish would be granted. We throttled the Prince 33 CC onto plane and pointed into the stacked rollers, and the big RIB took it all in stride. What’s more, the boat’s nimble handling allowed us to make a sharp hard-over turn and ride the following seas back to the Intracoastal Waterway in comfort. Conveniently, we saw folks in a similar-size fiberglass V-hull suffer comparably more visible discomfort while attempting to run the inlet. When it comes to ­rough-sea comfort, the Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC is hard to beat.

Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC helm

Interior and Accessories

The 33 CC has ­plenty of creature comforts on board to make an enjoyable day out of cruising in calm ­waters too. Start with the ­wraparound cockpit seating behind the console helm that can comfortably seat six to seven adults. The gunwales feature cushioned backrests, and a high-backed backrest extends along the transom seating. It’s a great conversation pit; throw in the dinette table when it’s time to serve lunch. Our test boat included the optional T-top that keeps the helm and part of the cockpit in the shade. The console hides a small cabin accessed by a sliding door to port of the helm station. In the forward part of the console, there’s a sink and ­stovetop and a small ­refrigerator. At rest or at anchor, the entire bow area serves as one giant sun pad for your happy crew to enjoy.

Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC cabin

If you didn’t already guess from my inlet run, driving this boat is a real blast. With the twin Mercury 400 Verados, we threatened 60 mph at top speed running in calmer waters, a number that Nuova Jolly says it can definitely surpass under less-windy ­conditions. ­Handling was superb; the deep-V hull helps it carve turns at 30 mph, and the boat felt very responsive executing S-curves at speed. In short, the Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC is a ton of fun.

Read Next: Mercury Verado 400 Outboard Review

Nuova Jolly Prince 33 CC cockpit seating

How We Tested

  • Engines: Twin 400 hp Mercury V-10 Verado outboards
  • Drive/Props: Outboard/Mercury Revolution 4 15 1/4″ x 19″ 4-blade stainless steel
  • Gear Ratio: 1.75:1 Fuel Load: 104 gal. Water on Board: 0 gal. Crew Weight: 360 lb.

High Points

  • Nonskid texture on RIB collar provides sure footing when stepping aboard from the dock.
  • RIB collar and deep-V fiberglass hull make this boat an offshore beast.
  • Swim platform extends around the engines to allow for more water access, with a telescoping ladder mounted to port that deploys away from the props.

Low Points 

  • Need to remove a cushion in the bow for windlass access.
  • More grab handles in the cockpit would be helpful. ABYC H-41 sets the standard that boats must have handrails on weather decks and in all seating areas intended to be occupied underway.  

Toughest Competitor

Italia Boats Sea Prop 33 is another performance RIB offering twin outboards that starts at $239,000 for the base boat with twin Mercury 350s.

What an epic day out on the water to celebrate a milestone birthday. Booking was easy and staff answered all our questions. Crew was so nice and helpful. We got to anchor and swim and paddle board just outside the marina. Even my 2 year old got to enjoy the water. Afterwards we had our treats and drinks while we cruised the marina. They even have a room you can change out of your wet clothes into your dry clothes. 10/10 recommend. Beautiful boat, wonderful crew. Thank you Latitude 33! Best day ever!

Incredible incredible half day experience with Latitude! The boat itself was stunning, high quality finishes, just beautiful. On top of that the boat staff was great - kind, helpful, patient as we were running a little late. You could tell that they really really cared about our experience. We had cozy blankets as we sailed in the winter. This completely shifted my perspective about only boating in the summer. The highlight was when they took us to see all the seals. One of a kind experience!

Whole process was very easy. We had a last minute change on our work event. Found Latitude 33 based on a referral and followed up on Yelp. They provided a quote quickly and we were off to the races. Beautiful yacht. Staff was very helpful and explained everything at the start. Weather wasn't perfect, but the staff made sure we had a great time. Will use again.

Thanks Jesse. It was a please to host your company event.

I can't say enough great things about my first time renting a boat charter! I wanted to do something different and fun for my office staff as a fun team building event and this was perfect!! Booking was incredibly easy as I asked a few questions via yelp initially. They responded right away and had quick answers to all my questions about number of people, food, drinks etc. Our day on the boat was incredible and our entire team loved it. If you are thinking about chartering a boat for an event or just some friends for a day I highly recommend Latitude! Cheryl was so great with communicating and made sure our trip was the best. I look forward to booking another boat day with friends.

My heart is full. Cheryl and Jack went above and beyond in creating a memorable experience for me and my guests. The hospitality is top notch and their yacht is absolutely beautiful! We had such a magical experience. Cheryl and Jack allowed me to come early to set up for my "Ocean Blue 32" birthday. Once the guests arrived we took off circling the marina del rey pier while eating and drinking. We then took off and enjoyed a calm December day taking in the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica pier. Jack was kind to point out things on the way as most of us were from out of town. What pleased me the most was the service. They really let us chill and keep to ourselves but we're immediately helpful and available once called upon. I can not wait to book again when the weather is warmer. Latitude 33 made my birthday celebration EPIC!

My family and I had a great time on Starting Over! Jack and Cheryl, owners, are hospitable and easy to work with- I could tell that they love helping make dreams come to life! Being able to choose a yacht that was the right size for our family and then customizing the trip based on our preferences made booking easy. Once on board, Captain Nic kept us safe and found dolphins and a Minke whale to see!! Such an amazing experience, it was like having a front-row seat to my own private dolphin show! The amazing Crew- Taylor and Ivan are so much fun and approachable. They explained anything we had questions about, ensured our drinks were full and helped us use the amenities offered on board! The boat itself is amazing!! A luxury yacht with lots of places to relax solo or as a group. The inside is clean and tastefully decorated with access to a full kitchen and bathroom. There are so many comfortable and welcoming spots on board it's hard to have a favorite! Parking is easy but plan on extra travel time as traffic can get congested in the area and you don't want to miss out on water time! Being able to anchor out in Paradise Cove to swim and paddle board is something I look forward to doing this Summer on my next trip! Thank You Lattitude 33 so much for the amazing trip!

Thanks Allison! We truly enjoyed taking you and your family out on the water.

Had such a great time with friends out on the water! Everyone on board made it an easy, super fun experience! We had some people running late and the crew was very patient and kind! They took us around so we could see what we wanted - Santa Monica Pier and seals! It was cold the day we went out - but they had plenty of blankets and drinks were flowing so we didn't mind and could hang in the spacious cabin! Definitely want to come back in the summer so we can experience all the paddle boards, floats, etc when the boat is anchored! I highly recommend!

Seals we saw from the boat!

I wanted to take a boat cruise up the coast to Malibu for a last minute celebration. I contacted a few companies on Yelp, but with short notice, some didn't even respond. Latitude 33 got back to me quickly and I'm stoked they did. They got the details sorted out and the whole experience was just stress free. We had a blast heading up the coast! Seeing Venice and Santa Monica from the ocean was such a cool perspective. The boat we were on was BEAUTIFUL. Felt like we were in a music video or something. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I don't mean friendly like a waiter is friendly to you. I mean, friendly like they treat you like are actually friends. Just great people and a great time. I'd absolutely do this again! Next time I want to go south and see Manhattan Beach and Palos Verdes.

Photo of Liz T.

This was definitely one of the most memorable birthday celebrations I've had to date thanks to this booking. The yacht looked even better than the pictures, the captain and deckhand were both incredibly friendly and helpful, and I even got to try out paddleboarding for the first time. Overall, had a blast and would definitely book with them again!

Had the most AMAZING experience the other week for a friends birthday. Sheryl, Taylor, and Jack were so attentive and amazing. Would 10/10 recommend!

Hallett 33: Overview

Fawcett Designs is pleased to have been chosen to collaborate with Richard Hallett of Hallett Canvas and Sails in Falmouth Maine, to develop a new 33 foot sport racer/cruiser.

In 2001, Richard Hallett won his class at Key West Race Week aboard Family Wagon a 27 foot sloop that he designed, built and sailed himself. In 2002 he returned to place second in this hotly contested sport class. Now, Richard Hallett has teamed with Sean Fawcett to develop a 33 foot evolution of this fast, fun and easy to sail sport boat.

This lightweight but powerful design features a hard chine design which enhances initial stability, provides a fine entry when heeled for upwind ability yet provides increased lifting surfaces for heavy air reaching and running conditions.

The Hallett 33 was built by Brion Reiff Boatbuilders in Brooklin Maine and launched in 2007.

Whether you are racing, cruising or just day-sailing with the family, the Hallett 33 is what a boat should be: Simply Fun!
