Posted by Tall Ships America on September 22, 2015
Where she sails
San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean
The schooner is named after the owner’s grandmother, Freda Marie Been
Originally commissioned as the Spirit of St. Augustine, she was designed by legendary East Coast naval architect, Charles Wittholtz. Her traditional gaff rigged design was intended for comfortable offshore passage-making between New England and Key West with well-appointed accommodations. Called Liberty during many of her 18 years of service before she was purchased in 2010 by Marina O’Neil and Paul Dines of SF Bay Adventures and brought to the Pacific Ocean. Re-christened the Freda B, she is now berthed in Sausalito, California, where she is available for private, custom parties and events, as well as public sails.
