freeman 32, Silver Pearl came to us after 4 years laid up. Inside the wooden structure had been badly degraded by water ingress from the rotten decks. whilst much of the fitout is savable but it needed removal to deal with the beams, knees and formers. The original engines are being rebuillt and the keel bolts replaced whilst the boat is apart. The boat is from the 1960's believed to be one of the earliest freeman 32's. She has a GRP hull and cabin roofs with mahogany framework and fittout. The deckbeams are of a hard to identify timber but look to be a light hardwood possibly birch or maple
