Founded in 1980, Built in Taiwan
Al Mason first introduced the Mason 43 which was built by Ta Shing in Taiwan. The 43 was a classic American design which Al Mason learned while working for the three acclaimed sailboat designers: John Alden, Philip Rhodes and Olin Stevens. The Mason 43 is one of the most beloved offshore sailing yachts because it caters to sailing long range while shorthanded.
The construction of the Mason is strong and sturdy sailing yacht that has been called “bulletproof”. While producing Mason’s Ta Shing soon became the best yard in Taiwan and one of the best in the world. The interiors are beautiful and well designed and utilize as much space as possible making the Mason 43 perfect for a family of 4 or 2 couples.
The famed Mason 43 later became the 44 soon followed by several other designs that included the Mason 33, 53 and 63.
