Meet S/V Last Tango

S/V Last Tango is a beautiful 1995 Mason 44, hull number 161.  She was designed by Al Mason and built in Taiwan by Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE).  


The Masons appeal to us, and many other ambitious cruisers, not only for their traditional lines and handcrafted teak interiors but because they were built to sail around the world.  Approximately 67 Mason 44s have been built to date, with quite a few of them completing one if not multiple circumnavigations under their keel.  

In the years since Jason and I met we've worked our way up from a Hunter 28, to a Catalina 350 to the Mason 44.  After owning two other boats and spending about 2 years looking, we had a pretty solid list of what we wanted in a boat and Last Tango had many of them.  As with any boat, it's all about tradeoffs.  Unless you are starting from scratch, no boat is going to be perfect.  However, we love her just the same. 

Here's her basic specs:

LOA 43' 11"
LWL 31' 9"
Beam 12' 4"
Draft 6' 3"
Displacement  ~30,000 lbs
