The last Freedom 45 built, NAMASTE was the pinnacle of the engineering excellence of this classic yacht. All of the previous interior designs were considered, re-engineered, and manufactured for an exacting client who had owned larger yachts and knew of the latest systems and design updates. 

With two private cabins and two ensuite, heads, the aft head having a stall shower her interior is large and very comfortable.  She sleeps six, four in private staterooms and two in the main salon.

Varnished Cherry Interior with many custom features including integral drip rail below the opening ports elegantly following the shear-line of the deck plan. Stainless Steel opening ports with tempered glass. Three levels of lighting including night lighting and indirect lighting.


From the bow, and just aft of the fo'c's'le, the forward stateroom has a very comfortable v-berth with impressive headroom above the berth. There is private access to the forward head/shower, drawers, dressers to port and starboard with multiple drawers. Storage is excellent by any standards. There is also Excellent Ventilation via 3 opening ports and large opening deck hatch. 


The forward head is next aft and to starboard, and this head functions also as a day head for those guests not staying the night, or otherwise uninvited. There is a pocket door between the head and the forward stateroom and another door to the salon. The shower is in the head. Deck hatch, opening port for ventilation.


Moving aft is the spacious main salon. There is an entertainment center on the port side at the forward end of the bench seating, containing TV/DVD. A commodious dining table is on centerline with additional L-shaped settee seating to starboard. The dining table folds out to an enormous size, great for entertaining 7 to 8 for dinner, enjoying a rainy day card game, or, as many Freedom 45 owners discover, being the roundtable of the flagship where all congregate.

NOTE: A great advantage of having fuel and water tankage below the cabin sole is that the area of entire settee dimensions are free to be used as easily accessed storage. In many shallow bilged yachts, which this is not, the salon, typically middle of the vessel, is an ideal spot for heavy things. As water weighs in at around 8 pounds per gallon, it is heavy, and not easily carried in the ends of the ship where the polar moments of inertia cause heavy stuff to become a liability, i.e.: pitching and other nasty characteristics.


Aft to port is U-shaped galley with Force 10 three burner stove, single deep stainless steel sink with integral stainless steel drain board on the centerline of the boat and microwave oven. The refrigeration system has very large Grunnert Hold over plates using a utectic plate solution--in english, this means superb efficiency, super cold system.

Further, opposite the galley and aft of the nav station is a large deep freezer.

Award winning to say the least.


On the starboard side, opposite the galley, is the navigation station with a very nice chart desk, large amount of storage and a swivel chair.

The navigation area contains a second VHF radio and repeater instruments for the Autopilot units at the helm.

Moving aft in the passage, on outboard is a hanging locker, while on centerline you will find access to the generator and Yanmar main engine. Above the Yanmar engine access are the controls for the generator and large AC/DC ships electrical panel. There is a clever pull out tray for the refrigeration compressor and condenser, allowing for very easy servicing.

The spacious passageway leads to the aft stateroom.


Further aft is the private owners stateroom with centerline Queen berth, private head with separate stall shower. This stateroom has multiple drawers, hanging locker, a ladies vanity and even a full-length mirror. The aft stateroom has multiple opening ports and a large 24x24 opening hatch on deck. There are two optional opening ports in the transom, very nice for viewing aft above the berth, and a multitude of opening ports, some 5 total in the cabin and a rather large deck hatch.
