Freya (formerly Fiery Jubilee), a Bill Tripp design, was built by Iverson in 1959. Over the years, this boat has been well cared for and benefited from routine annual care to systems and finishes. Her fine lines and balanced design allow Freya to be equally at home daysailing or racing. Her practical accommodations make this an appealing option for a cruising couple. Freya has been well maintained by Rockport Marine and is currently stored in Northport, ME.

FREYA is a wonderful boat. She has beautiful lines, moves well in a light breeze, and stands up to a hard blow. Her previous owner reports that she was competitive in the classic yacht circuit. She’s carried me up, down, and all around the Maine Coast.
