3-cylinder Yanmar.. Hour meter reads 840 at time of listing but owner not sure if meter is original. Shaft log, starter and all four engine mounts were replaced recently. Engine has been yard-maintained and serviced at regular intervals. This is the iconic Yanmar 3GM30F motor that runs forever while hardly burning any fuel!

DC system powered by one 12-volt group 24 starting battery and four 6-volt batteries for the house. Batteries are charged by engine-driven alternator or Xantrex Freedom HF 1800 battery charger when plugged into shore power. All batteries were replaced recently.
ANTARES is equipped with a microwave oven, TV, electric refrigeration, and electric hot-water heater. Original cabin lights have been replaced with LEDs and owners have installed 12-volt fans in both staterooms. Original manual head has been replaced with an electric head. Boat is equipped with an electric Maxwell windless for anchor rode management and a Harken 44 2-speed electric winch for easy mainsail management.
There are two propane tanks in a dedicated cockpit locker which feed a 2-burner gimbaled stove in the cabin protected by an electric solenoid switch.
Owners have recently replaced original instruments with up to date Garmin equipment, including radar, chart plotter, autopilot and wind instruments.
Fractional sloop configuration with free-standing composite mast and self-tacking jib on Camberspar. This is what makes a Freedom a Freedom! Full-battened mainsail with single-line reefing and two reef points is contained in stack pack with integral lazy jacks. All halyards and lines have been replaced recently and are led back to cockpit through well-organized line-stoppers. NO WIRE STANDING RIGGING TO WORRY ABOUT OR GET IN THE WAY ON DECK! The Freedom 35 is designed to sail easily with a crew of one or two, and sails like a dinghy under mainsail alone even in high winds.
ANTARES is laid out down below to accommodate two couples comfortably, or a couple with kids, and is technically able to sleep seven. There are two private cabins with double berths and a single and double in the main salon. Athwart-ship berth in aft cabin allows for excellent headroom so you won't feel like you are sleeping in a coffin. The wood joinery below and the attention to detail set the Freedom 35 interior apart from other boats in her class. The large opening port lights are heavy-duty stainless steel and afford the cabin a light, airy feel. ANTARES comes with a dodger, Bimini and connector, which, along with new cockpit cushions, turn the cockpit into another living or sleeping area. The Freedom 35 was designed with coastal cruising in mind and the accommodations are very well thought out.
ANTARES is equipped with air conditioning. She is also equipped with a versatile aluminum arch over the cockpit that is integral to the Bimini and could be used to mount solar panels or dinghy davits.
The owners are very experienced cruisers and have added several innovative features that you have to see in person to appreciate.
