Broker's comments

The Mason 43 design, commissioned by Pacific Asian Enterprises and built by Ta Shing in Taiwan, has roots deep in the American tradition of offshore sailing yachts that reach back to John Alden, Philip Rhodes, and Olin Stevens. In fact, Al Mason worked for all three of the famous yacht designers. This Mason 43 though dated is one of the most popular offshore boats built in the last 30 years.
