The Yacht Freedom's Wind is a Sailing Catamaran built in 2007 for owner Forrest Gauthier.

The yacht was designed by Jeanneau's racing division Jeanneau Advanced Technologie (JAT) and built by the Lagoon division of Beneteau Group at Construction Navale Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France.

JAT combines the passion for competition and high-tech construction giving birth to over fifty high-tech competition yachts including formula 40, maxi-multihulls, trimarans, One Tonners, F1 monohulls and America's Cup Boats.

LAGOON has distinguished itself since the beginning in the construction of racing sailboats. In the open multihull class, LAGOON has not only built the FLEURY MICHONs series for Philippe Poupon, but also R.M.O. (PRIMAGAZ) and the famous PIERRE Ier (LAKOTA). Record transatlantic crossings such as the Route du Rhum 90 where the multihulls PIERRE Ier, FLEURY MICHON IX, and R.M.O. finished first, second, and third were followed by other victories, establishing the best overall record ever in offshore racing.

Thanks to this internationally-renowned reputation, LAGOON was asked to design and build the trimarans for the movie Waterworld.

Construction of Freedom's Wind was completed at CNB in late 2007 and fitted for the crossing. She was then sailed across the Atlantic from Bordeaux, France to Key Largo, Florida, which is her current home.
