Freedom 235

23' DUAL CONSOLE

 

Loaded with big boat features, the Freedom 235 is the best built family boat, perfect for both fishing and cruising. The sleek, forward-thinking design is a real head turner, and when you climb aboard, the expansive beam evokes a large boat feel. An oversized head compartment, freshwater cockpit shower, and sturdy transom door providing access to swim or dockside boarding platforms are just added conveniences not typically found on boats this size. This 23-foot boat offers an optional wet bar and electromechanically extendable lounge seat as well as many other added amenities, making this one of the best dual console boats and a delight for the whole family.
