1988 Mason 34

Madisonville, Louisiana



Don't miss this opportunity to get a great deal on a great boat!

"Joan" is a fine example of a long distance blue water cruiser.  She has been meticulously maintained by her current owner, who is a professional yacht captain.  Single handing this boat would be easily done, having all lines lead aft to the cockpit.  The attention to detail throughout the vessel is obvious. 

When entering the cabin to starboard you will find a large u-shape galley with an opposing port side navigation station.  Continuing forward a center-line teak salon table with double leaves and port & starboard settee seating.  Moving forward through the boat, the enclosed head with shower & vanity is to port with an opposing hanging locker storage.  The forward berth is well laid out with an abundance of storage lockers. 

The high standards expected from Ta Shing PAE are seen throughout this vessel.   The beautiful teak interior only adds to the attraction of the cabin layout & well placed storage throughout the boat.  Seaman-like latches keep all lockers closed & easy open in the cockpit.  If you are looking for a vessel that has the extended cruising capabilities in a smaller sized boat, the Mason 34 could be your answer! 

Owner takes immaculate care of this vessel & it shows!
