Default Freeman 37 & 34 - Miami 2015 *video added!*

***update!***

Check out this video!
https://vimeo.com/121997755

As we complete final preparations for the 2015 Miami boat show figured we would give our THT friends and followers a sneak peak.

We will have 2 boats at the show this year, a super tricked out 37VH and a nicely equipped 34VH.

The 37VH was designed for HUK Performance Gear and they loaded her down with very cool options!

Check them out at http://www.hukgear.com/

Keep an eye on these guys they are going to do great things in the coming years!

Some of these you may have seen before but this should tell the story!

Still have to add cup holders and arm rest to the center console but you can get the idea.

Photoshop work of the wrap the HUK guys will use and yes the Freeman logo will be also included.

Here are the performance numbers with Yamaha 23p props, the biggest ones they make. We are working on getting some higher pitch Mercury props. She has more top speed we just need the props to get to it.

We hope to have more numbers before the boat show. She has tons of torque! Feels like a sports car.


Now for the 34VH!

Very windy during this sea trial. Need more predictable weather to get final numbers but here is a start.

Simply the best. Freeman Boatworks raises the bar so quickly no other boat should be considered. I own a Freeman and am still jealous!!!!

Was this with the wind? If not those are pretty serious numbers granted you weren't loaded super heavy. Might have to consider the 300s as a more serious option. 350s get the same or better correct?

They are just beautiful boats. One of these days I am going to get a ride on a 34. Work will probably preclude Miami this year. I wish someone would commission one with a walk thru transom and nice dive ladder!

Hopefully you guys get to test the 34 with 300s again. Any difference in planing speed versus the 350s with more torque?

Sweet. So the twin 557's are faster than the quad 300 Yamaha's?

Seems that way. I didn't think it would be close but maybe they'll close the gap some with new props.

Trying to find a whole in my schedule to make it down to Miami. Wish the 29VH would be there. If I can make it down to Miami, the only reason I'm coming is to see the Freeman and take a ride in the 34 which I presume is as close as it gets to the 29.

That 37 is so tricked. Need to sea trial one at some point. The bow and cockpit size still amazes me for a 37ft boat.

I was surprised by all the little improvements that went into the new 34. There's a lot more there than just a vented hull changed from the 33. I'd seriously try to make it happen for a 34 over the 29 if I could. You're going to be able to hang with or outperform 35-40ft rigs in the 34 and the same with with 30-34ft boats with the 29, if that makes sense.


I like the etched polycarb lids and motor mounting plates with the Freeman logos.

Those are pretty sweet numbers on the 34.
