I am currently evaluating a Mason 44 as a possible liveaboard
cruising boat for the ICW
and possibly beyond. Unlike many other models of boats, there seems to be a dearth of information and opinions about this type of vessel. There are some reviews
about the Mason 43, but I am told that this is a very different boat than the Mason 44.
Any and all opinions welcomed, but I'm particularly interested in the sailing characteristics of this vessel, particularly the amount of heel required to reach maximum efficiency. Also any maintenance
issues or gotcha's inherent in this design.
Thanks in Advance
