The Mason 43 is one of a long line of exceptional boats from Al Mason’s drawing board, built by the legendary Ta Shing Boat Building Company in Taiwan, known for their high quality work. Other outstanding brands built by this renowned yard include Nordhavn, Norseman, Skye, Babas, Flying Dutchman, Tashiba and Taswell. A very sea-kindly motion combined with great accommodations and classic good looks guarantee that this design is a worthy long term investment. The Ta Shing yard built these boats with the finest materials and top quality craftsmanship to stand the test of time.

The Mason 43 is a capable ocean-going sailboat with graceful sweeping lines, beautiful overhangs and a full keel. The large rudder provides excellent turning ability and the long keel gives tremendous directional control in all conditions. The rudder sits up four inches from the keel bottom providing a grounding safety assurance and is secured in place with a heavy bronze shoe. The cutter rig gives you different sail configurations that will add comfort and safety in the high seas.

Engine placement is below the salon sole to provide quieter running. It also provides excellent engine access and allows for a straight shaft, direct drive. With the propeller angle perpendicular to the water plane you get greater efficiency and performance.

The Mason 43 is a true classic and a proven offshore passage maker. This is the design chosen by George Day, former editor of Cruising World and founder of the touchstone publication Blue Water Sailing for his own family’s circumnavigation back in the 90s. This is a great pedigree and the Mason series are among the finest yachts ever built in Taiwan.
