This is hull number 4 of the semi-custom 52 Legacy series built by Freedom Yachts of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Her Bill Langan design is a wonderful study in proportions, lines, form and function and it's outstanding performance may even be more impressive than it's looks! Twin 1050 h.p. MAN diesels make her leap up onto plane, and cut through a head sea delivering a soft landing. Fully loaded she weighs in at over 50,000 lbs, offers a spacious 2 cabin two head accommodations, yet still boasts a nimble and thrilling ride.
She boasts numerous upgrades during the last eighteen months including but not limited to the following:
Beginning aft, the cockpit is accessed from the 2 ½' deep teak swim platform through a starboard side transom door. There is a port side built-in cushioned settee forward on the port side and a stainless steel gradual ladder leading up to the flybridge to starboard. A large electrically opening hatch centerline forward gives access to the generous lazarette and engine room with 5'5" headroom. The cockpit perimeter has varnished teak cap rails. All exterior hardware is commercial grade 316L stainless steel, hawse pipes, cleats and deck hardware.
The flybridge features wrap around seating for eight surrounding a flip-up teak table and an insulated ice box attached forward of the helm console. A molded fiberglass bench seat for two has a storage locker to starboard and a small refrigerator to port. The helm station has excellent 360° visibility and all electronics and navigation equipment is duplicated or repeated. A Stratoglass panel wind screen slides in just forward of the helm. A fiberglass hardtop is supported with aluminum stanchions.
The bow is accessed via 19 inch wide side decks. There are varnished teak rails capping raised toe kicks and double stainless steel handrails. Fully forward on the raised bow are two lockers. One for fender storage, the other for anchor chain storage. A freshwater washdown is adjacent to the anchor locker. Just aft of the bow is a large Sunbrella cushioned sun pad.
The salon is entered through a heavy duty Freeman sliding aluminum door. One is immediately impressed with the craftsmanship of raised panel satin finished American cherry joinerwork which blends perfectly with the teak and holly sole as well as the Ultra Suede headliner throughout. There are large windows port, starboard and aft with curtains and Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades for privacy. The forward windshield has a snap-on exterior cover. Immediately to starboard is a new built-in refrigerator/ice maker combo unit, followed by cabinetry housing the entertainment center with flat screen TV on an electric lift, audio/video components and bottle storage.

Directly across from the lower helm to port is the traditional companion navigators station complete with chart table and lounge. Aft to port is a large newly upholstered L-shaped settee and matching ottoman with interior storage which serves as additional seating or cocktail table. There are port and starboard sliding doors forward for direct access to the side decks.
Moving forward from the salon, you descend five steps down a large centerline stairway into an open atrium where the galley and dining areas are located. This space is perfect for entertaining with its atrium effect achieved by being located below the windshield to
remain open above to the salon.The teak and holly sole continues from the galley/ dinette area right up to the master stateroom forward.
To port is the galley with raised panel satin cherry cabinetry and drawers, Ubatuba granite counter tops and top of the line appliances. There is a two-burner Gaggeneau glass cook-top forward and two under-mounted white ceramic sinks aft. Behind the cherry paneled cabinets are two Sub Zero refrigerator drawer units, a Fisher Paykel drawer style dishwasher, 15 bottle wine chiller, and a Tundra electric freezer
compartment under the counter top. An array of cabinets and deep storage areas are more than adequate for extended cruising. Across to starboard is an L-shaped dinette surrounded by more raised panel cabinetry. The ship's electrical panels are concealed behind two raised panel doors aft in this area. Forward is a built-in 15" TV flanked by two glass storage cabinets.
