Chances are if you were to ask any Marine Industry leader the question; “We’re needing maximum show value for our yacht and seeking a vetted team to optimize the cosmetic condition and preserve it until sold. Who should we call”? Their eyes would perk up and they’d quickly reply, “Call Freedom Yacht Services.”

Freedom Yacht Services specializes in exterior cosmetic refinishing, periodic exterior upkeep, and the application of protective yacht coatings such as polymer, ceramic and anti-foul systems.

Starting from a wash bucket in 2005, owner/operator Josh Cunningham seized on the need for 5-star professional deck services aboard crew-less yachts sitting static and/or awaiting sale in South Florida. Thirteen years later, Freedom Yacht has grown into a specialized trade group of 16 full time crew members and five Admin professionals – quite possibly the largest yacht detailing/deck service support group in South Florida.

Recent landmark developments include-

  • In September of 2017, FYS spearheaded a massive Hurricane Relief Drive with the help from M/Y Grey Matters and Lauderdale Marine Center to deliver much-needed medical and baby goods to the devastated islands of St Maarten and Barbuda.
  • In late September of 2017, Freedom Yacht Service’s bottom painting team coated the largest vessel ever hauled at Lauderdale Marine Center – M/Y Cary Ali weighing in at 475 Tons.
  • In October of 2017, FYS contracted with 3 of the industry’s most prominent Shipbuilders: Ferretti Group, Sanlorenzo and Cheoy Lee to lead in the exterior commissioning of all incoming product. Further duties include Exterior Representation for all Fleets at the 3 local International boat shows here in South Florida.
