In a profession dating back thousands of years, one man’s dream, to find a better way, changed it ALL.
Billy Freeman was raised on the creeks and ocean of Charleston, South Carolina. An avid offshore fisherman his passion for boats and boat building ignited in his teenage years. Billy worked on, developed, and pondered the benefits of numerous mono hull and catamaran designs.
The catamaran hull offered the ride he was looking for but they were slow and poor performing in many sea states. They tend to yaw, chatter, and pitch side to side in following seas. At the time Billy had a Manta 24 while it was a huge improvement over his previous mono hulls and cats, he felt there was still room for improvement.
Billy knew fellow fisherman around the country wanted a fast, comfortable, stable ride but couldn’t deal with slow speeds, poor handling in certain conditions, and most important poor curb appeal of some catamarans.
This isn’t a story about a boat, it’s a story about the American Dream.
This is The Freeman Story.
