Freeman 26

Using the same hull as the Freeman 25, the Freeman 26's superstructure was developed from the Freeman 22 Mk2. We see the return of the step in the deck and larger cabin windows. The Freeman 26 offers larger accomodation and together with the Freeman 22 Mk2 formed the back bone of what is generally known as the Freeman range.
