The Schooner Freda B: A beautiful tall ship sailing out of the Sausalito! Public and private sails available. Originally commissioned as the Spirit of St. Augustine, she was designed by legendary East Coast naval architect, Charles Wittholtz. She was built in steel by Treworgy Yachts of Florida and launched in 1991. Her traditional gaff rigged design was intended for comfortable offshore passage-making between New England and Key West with well-appointed accommodations.
Renowned for their grace and elegance, the gaff schooner has inspired artists, poets and sailors for almost two centuries. Called Liberty during many of her eighteen years of service, scores of guests enjoyed her before she was purchased by Marina O'Neill and Paul Dines of SF Bay Adventures and brought to the Pacific Ocean.
The transit from Miami to Sausalito was accomplished in two steps; first on the deck of a huge freighter, taking only two weeks to arrive in Ensenada Mexico. After which, it took just three days to sail her through the beautiful Golden Gate and to her new home port.
Liberty has since been christened Freda B, lovingly restored and is every inch a yacht. Once onboard, guests may relax and let the experienced crew take you sailing on the San Francisco Bay and beyond. For the more engaged groups, we always welcome our guests to join in, hoist sails and take a turn at the helm. Our crew is enthusiastic about what they do and love to share sailing on the San Francisco Bay.
