Masts and Paint

The boat I just bought has a mast and spars painted an awful color that I would very much like to remove/change.

Question is, do these things really NEED paint? Why do I see both painted and unpainted masts around the marina? I've been quoted $2000 for repainting. I would like to avoid this cost and the hassle of doing it myself.

Can I sand off the paint and just leave the aluminum bare?

Thanks in advance!
