The Freedom 39 is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wooden trim. It is a cat-rigged ketch, with carbon-fiber conventional booms and two free-standing carbon-fiber masts. It has an aft cockpit and features a raked stem, a slightly reverse transom, a skeg-mounted rudder controlled by a wheel and a fixed fin keel. The design displaces 18,500 lb (8,391 kg) and carries 5,300 lb (2,404 kg) of lead ballast.
The boat has a draft of 5.50 ft (1.68 m) with the standard keel fitted.
The boat is fitted with a British Perkins Engines 4-108 50 hp (37 kW) for docking and maneuvering. The fuel tank holds 80 U.S. gallons (300 L; 67 imp gal) and the fresh water tank has a capacity of 130 U.S. gallons (490 L; 110 imp gal).
The design has sleeping accommodations for six people. It has a private, aft, double cabin, under the cockpit on the starboard side, two pilot berths in the main cabin and a double berth in the bow cabin. The galley is "U"-shaped and located on the port side, at the foot of the companionway steps. It includes a three-burner stove and double sinks. The head is located just aft of the bow cabin on the starboard side.
