About

Seller is motivated and open to reasonable offers!

"Freebird" is a very special catamaran. She was atrend setting luxury catamaran with a no expense spared interior by Camper & Nicholson. Ahead of her time for the cruising catamaran market, she features many design elements that were very innovative at the time but are now standard on liveaboard cats.

The Freebird 50 catamaran design was developed from that of the smaller Firebird design by Modular Moldings, a blisteringly fast 25 foot open deck racing catamaran that twice won the Cowes Round the Island Race. The length and beam were doubled and a deck house added to create a strong, spacious cruising catamaran capable of taking its crew anywhere in the world.

Both boats were designed by Toby Richardson, a hugely experienced catamaran sailor and the stress calculations were handled by a former senior member of the British Aerospace engineering team which created the Concorde airliner.

Ultimately 9 Freebirds were built in Cornwall, England byModular Mouldings Ltd, but production ceased when the moulds were destroyed in a factory fire.

"Freebird" offers the rare opportunity to own a cruising capable classic performance catamaran at an affordable price point. With a little bit of love from a motivated new owner, Freebird can be returned to her former offshore cruising glory.

We take pride in our happy customers

I had a very good experience with Will Miller at TMC. He is very knowledgeable about his business and took care of all aspects of my purchase, and where he couldn’t places me in touch with the people who could. The transaction went very smoothly as far as I was concerned.

— Jeff

“Thank you Conor, for your integrity, continuous input and guidance during this process. The Multihull Company is a class act that I have had the honor of working with twice. I look forward to referring Conor to all I know in need of a broker.”


— Jeff and Julie

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

— Jimmy

I couldn’t be more grateful to have had TMC on my side throughout this process. Buying was a new experience for me and I know it wasn’t the easiest deal you’ve ever had, but you were competent and kind throughout.
