The Mason 44 has lovely lines reflecting her classic CCA heritage and underbody. She is my idea of what a sailboat should look like. Graceful , great sheer, spoon bow and reverse transom with a cunningly designed coach roof that belies the interior dimensions. In fact one of the things we like best is the 6'3" headroom throughout.

Sloop rigged with a removable inner forestay, she was built by PAE/Mason at the TaShing yard. Hull is solid FRP, thick and heavily reinforced. This boat is quiet even in a gale. Production ended in 2000, about 170 were built over the years.

She is fast for her waterline, seakindly and very comfortable with the tankage necessary for long distance cruising. Note that the engine is below the cabin sole which is also where the generator or in our case battery box goes. Mine has a double bow roller and has no problems with a 45#CQR and 300' of chain plus a second anchor and rode.

Above and below decks the boat is well thought out (though not as trick as current boats), fitted with good hardware and features glorious teak joinerwork. Storage is amazing, virtually every bit of the boat is accessible through and unending variety of panels, cabinets and lockers. Great ventilation below, and a very airy feel.

In the past year I have restored the boat completely, replacing, refinishing or updating every part of her. I have opinions about most everything at this point =)

I got a lot of good advice from other owners on SailNet when I was looking for my boat, and I am glad to help you find yours, or correspond with other Mason owners.
