Overview

The lines of a Mason 44 are “classic and timeless” – her well documented sea kindly motion offers effortless blue water cruising. 180 Mason 43 and 44 were built – long keel with solid GRP hull construction makes a ‘bullet proof’ go anywhere sailing vessel.
This example was imported into the UK in 2013 by the current owner with full UK VAT paid and CE certification in place.
MAJOR rebuild and refit included, new engine, generator, new electrical wiring, heating, hull paint, teak rub rails, refrigeration.  More recent upgrades include a bow thruster, Raymarine, Force 10 cooker, gas pipes.  In 2019 she had new standing rigging, new boom to suit a conventional slab reef main, new sails (main, yankee & staysail in Hydranet).  Also new batteries in 2023.
‘Lyra May’ has never had teak decks!  So…………she is quite special.

CONSTRUCTION - from the manufacturer
“The Mason 44 was designed and constructed to meet and exceed specifications set forth by the American Bureau of Shipping and Lloyd’s for fiberglass yacht construction. All laminations took place in dehumidified air-conditioned lay-up rooms. Materials such as fiberglass, resin, foam, etc., are also stored within climatically controlled areas as mandated by Lloyd’s regulations. Every Mason was built to the same rigorous standards.

The Mason 44 hull is completely hand laminated with eight full-length longitudinal foam-filled stringers. Heavy laminated transverse transvers stringers, double bonded ¾” structural bulkheads, and joiner bulkheads used for interior furniture assured a rigid structure capable of withstanding a great deal of abuse…

A vertical-end grain balsa core separated two hand laid laminates of one-piece molded fiberglass deck. The deck was secured to the hull using a combination of 3-M 5200 epoxy compound, heavy fiberglass bonding of six laminates, thru bolts on 8” centers and self-tapping stainless-steel screws on on 8” centers. Many designers of production fiberglass “offshore cruising boats” endorsed identical hull to deck joint construction but without the fiberglass lamination. The Mason 44 had without a question the toughest hull to deck joint in the industry.

It should be noted that there are no less than six ¾” structural bulkheads in a Mason 44, all of which are attached to fiber rope (mare’s tale) and three alternating laminates of 1 ½ oz. matt and woven roving on both sides of mahogany bulkhead. The foam between the bulkhead and the hull insures no hard spots on bulkhead transfer visible from the yachts exterior. Every joinery bulkhead (of which there are dozens) is also attached to the deck and hull using two alternating layers of fiberglass matt and woven roving. Also note that one of eight full-length foam and fiberglass longitudinal stringer. No other yacht offers this level of security and peace of mind.” ~ Pacific Asian Enterprises

RIGGING - from the manufacturer
“The design, fabrication, and installation of the chainplates on a Mason 44 is an example of the many details on which a Mason buyer gets their money’s worth. On the standard cutter-rigged boat, the double spreader rig utilizes a individual chainplate for both the upper and intermediate stays. The upper and intermediate chainplates, as with all the chainplates, are forged stainless steel measuring ½” x 2” and running below the deck level over 36”. Both chainplates are attached to a primary structural bulkhead which is reinforced with two ¾” mahogany doublers. The total thickness of this chainplate attachment is just under three inches, including all the fiberglass lamination. The two chainplates are anchored to either side of the bulkhead with eight 7/16’ stainless steel bolts. The fore and aft lower chainplates which are ¼” x 1 ¾” are similarly anchored to a ¾” mahogany webs laminate with three alternating layers of 1 ½ oz. matt and woven roving plus the mare’s tails as discussed in the structural bulkhead attachment.” ~ Pacific Asian Enterprises
