1991 Mason 44' (13.41 m) Aft Cockpit Cutter
Annapolis, Maryland, United States
The lines of a Mason 44 are “classic and timeless”, probably they’re one of the prettiest yachts ever built and one that rivals the beautiful art of Bill Tripp and his Bermuda 40 and Hinckley Southwester 50 designs. The Mason 44 has lovely lines reflecting her classic CCA heritage and underbody.

The lines of a Mason 44 are “classic and timeless”, probably they’re one of the prettiest yachts ever built, and one that rivals the beautiful art of Bill Tripp and his Bermuda 40 and Hinckley Southwester 50 designs. The Mason 44 has lovely lines reflecting her classic CCA heritage and underbody. She is what a proper yacht/sailboat should look like; graceful, a great sheer, spoon bow and a reverse transom with a cunningly designed coach roof that belies the interior dimensions. In fact, one of the things we like best is the 6’10” headroom throughout her well designed interior. The lines of a Mason look absolutely beautiful at anchor with their long overhangs, high bow and flowing sheer line. Mason’s are capable and serious offshore sailing vessels with capabilities and equipment that go the distance.

The interior of this yacht is beautifully finished in teak joinery. Storage is amazing, virtually every bit of the boat is accessible through an unending variety of panels, cabinets and lockers.
The master stateroom forward has a very comfortable king sized V-berth with center filler. The 5” foam mattress is covered in Sunbrella and was replaced in 2005. Plenty of storage is found in shelves and drawers around the berth. There is a hanging locker in the master stateroom. There is a large opening hatch with screen and 2 opening ports with screens.
Aft of this is a large full length hanging locker to starboard. Walkway has a hatch and an opening porthole with screens for good cross ventilation. Opposite of the hanging locker, to port is the head with excellent head room and a separate shower. Plenty of storage in head and shower stall. Head has a hatch and opening porthole with screens.
The main salon has a U shaped dinette to port and has been enhanced with a custom fold out teak table. Opposite this, to starboard, is a settee. Deep cabinets and bookshelves are found on either side of the salon. Starboard settee converts to a bunk with stainless steel hanging supports. Bottom bunk is a sea-berth with removable lee cloths. Large opening hatch and 2 opening portholes with screens
Aft of the salon and to port, is the well-designed U-shaped galley with wine glass rack. The nav station is opposite the galley, to starboard. The nav station faces outboard and has a chair that stows below the desk and swings out when needed.
The aft stateroom is to port of the offset companionway and has a large double bed. Similar to the V-berth there is a 5” foam mattress, which is covered in Sunbrella and was replaced in 2005. Berth has 2 opening portholes and deck hatch with screens. Plenty of storage is found under the berth as well as above the berth and in a hanging locker. Opposite the aft stateroom, as you come down the companionway is a wet locker which drains to the bilge.
