Mason 43/44

I sailed on a friends Mason 44 for several seasons and was VERY impressed not only by the quality of workmanship but also her sailing performance (cutter rigged sloop). She was very comfortable for two couples. They are a high maintainence boat due to all the teak and brite work. They are also an excellent heavy weather boat. These boats were built by TaShing which is probably the best yard in the orient. In addition PAE does a very nice job with customer satisfaction and follow up and are very interested in maintaing contact with owners. Oftenthey are mistaken for Hinckley''s, but I think that their layout is much better for cruising and much more comfortable. Typically bargains are hard to find in the used market when it comes to Masons. Good Luck
