2002 Freedom - Any good?
Now I am looking at a 2002 Freedom. Is this a good watercraft. Is it a 3 seater and what options does it have? Can't seem to find much on the net. Seems very close to the older virage. Thanks.

The Freedom is a twin cylinder carburetor Virage with just basic instrumentation and features, very few options. Same hull, different top side colors. Seat might be different.
There is only one Virage hull design for all years. Prior to that, the SLTX bottom hull was similar, with a different top deck style.
All Polaris are good watercraft!
There was only a handful of Polaris hull designs from 1992-2004. Within those hulls, there were a variety of engine sizes, and from 1999-2004, some models had the option of Ficht fuel injection or carbs.

The Freedom has got to be the worlds best gas mileage watercraft over 49mph. I think I heard Womak did like 3 round trips Long Beach/Catalina on one before refueling.

I think the virage 800i got better gas consumption than the freedom I heard, but yeah at $3.50+ per gallon, the freedom is a "wiser" choice for those who don't want to spend all their check at the pump.
