FREEDOM, Contract #181, was the 2nd Mathis-Trumpy commissioned by Druggist, Mr. Aubert J. Fay of Boston and christened as FREEDOM on the 150th anniversary of the United States of America’s Independence. Mr. Fay cruised her between his homes in Lowell, Massachusetts and Miami, FL until 1933 when she was sold to Mrs. J.P. Donahue, daughter of department store tycoon, F.W. Woolworth who sailed her out of Palm Beach. In 1939, FREEDOM was again sold and re-named SUNSET, a name she kept through a succession of six more owners, until 2002 when she was acquired by her current owner and returned her to her original name.
During 2005-2009, FREEDOM underwent an exhaustive and complete rebuild by the experts at McMillen Yachts in Newport, RI who updated, rebuilt, and renewed all her systems and structure. Shortly after being recommissioned, this undertaking was recognized with a World Super Yacht Award – for Judges Best Rebuild, in 2010. FREEDOM one again sails seasonally between New England, the Chesapeake and South Florida / Bahamas fully crewed and impeccably maintained.
