When Only the Best Will Do...


And most important of all  - GREAT VALUE!!

Mason sailboats have always brought out the romantic adventurer in sailors. Because of their sheer beauty, and because they are built to sail around the world, Masons appeal not only to those with an appreciation of fine traditional lines, but also to those with ambitious cruising plans. This combination of high aesthetic values and offshore capabilities has been tremendously successful; over 300 Masons have been built to date. Mason are synonymous with beautiful, handcrafted interiors, impeccable gelcoat, and meticulously finished stainless steel hardware. Their beauty is further enhanced and demonstrated by how well they sail on and off the wind, maximizing sailing performance right up to the point of NOT sacrificing cruising comfort.

From the Bow - Guest Stateroom: through solid teak door to cabin with double berth offset to port. Berth is expandable with the additional cushion provided. Dressing seat w/ storage under, hanging locker, drawer and cabinetry under berth, full length shelf to starboard, 9 lockers, fiddled cubby storage, 12V fan, overhead hatch w/ teak  framed screen, 2 opening portlights w/ screens, access to chain locker full forward. Guest Head: Has private entries from the guest stateroom as well as the salon, vanity with S/S sink, 4 lockers, mirrored medicine cabinet, NEW Jabsco head, shower, pressure and manual water. Starboard Salon: Settee to starboard is upholstered in beautiful leather. This settee can be converted to bunk berths if needed. Here you will find a bureau with 3 drawer and two cabinets, 4 lockers with open fiddled storage between and storage lockers behind the cushions. ALL of the leather cushions have tasteful covers to protect them from the elements (or careless Captains!) Portside Salon: Solid teak dining table surrounded by beautiful leather cushions, 4 cabinets with open fiddled shelving between, traditional brass trawler lamp over the table provides evening atmosphere and gives the salon a warm, cozy feel. A huge overhead hatch with screen provides ample ventilation when combined with her additional 4 hatches and 10 opening ports (all screened). Wine storage compartment under the settee plus hullside storage. A brass clock and barometer grace the aft bulkhead. Nav Station: Properly located at the starboard base of the companionway with easy access to the helm. She has a flip top chart table, dedicated nav seat, 3 drawers, storage locker, electrical panel, teak faced panel for additional electronics, 12v fan, charting tools, weather monitor and a chart light. Master Stateroom: Enter to port through a sliding solid teak privacy door. Queen berth is hullside with overhead storage, bureau with mirror over, hanging locker, 2 cabinets under berth, open cubby storage, teak staving hull (throughout the boat), two cabinets, 2 stainless ports with screens and a screened overhead hatch. The adjacent ensuite head is entered thru a bi-fold door and has a vanity with S/S sink, mirror, NEW Groco Model K head, pressure and foot-pump water, 4 lockers Companionway: Five steps up to cockpit. Adjacent to the steps are 4 storage cubby's, a storage locker, a hanging locker and a trash compartment. Engine Room: The placement of the engine is beneath the cabin sole of the main salon. If viewed from the side profile, it should be noted that the prop shaft is parallel with the yacht's waterline. The prop is deep and the thrust is directly out of the stern providing very efficient operation. The boat motors well and is very maneuverable during docking due to the effect of the deep prop blast directly against the large rudder. Another notable feature of the shaft is that torque pull when reversing is almost non-existent. Engine noise level is kept to a minimum due to the sound deadening effect of the heavily insulated cabin sole. Engine access is exceptional.
