CRUISE THE WORLD IN COMFORT
Accommodations and Layout
This Mason 63 is a 3-cabin layout. Starting at the forecastle (bow) we find a teak-lined v-berth with storage cabinets and good hanging locker space. This a perfect guest stateroom. Just aft to starboard is the old head area that has been converted to hanging storage and a tool workshop. Across the hall is an accommodating 4-person settee for meals and relaxation. Just aft to starboard is a fully equipped galley with stove, oven, sinks, wall-mounted refrigerators with great food storage and counter space, that of a world-class cruising yacht. Aft again is a couple of steps that go up to the spacious raised salon. Ample light filters in through the great forward portlights and large windows on each side. Plenty of ventilation pours in through the hatches as well as the companionway to the cockpit. Aft again down a couple of steps to the aft staterooms. The starboard stateroom is and over and under-bunk suite suitable for two single crew. The aft master stateroom is spacious and has an adjoining head, large settee/berth, and a large queen/king berth with a custom made folding mattress for easy accessibility to under-bed storage. Teak lined cabins, big cruising yacht character, and a modest price makes "TE VEGA" a must-see.
Electronics and Navigation Equipment
The helm station is in the spacious cockpit area. There is a helm seat at the control station with a dodger, bimini, and extended fly. The large stainless-steel steering wheel is mounted at the bulkhead of this panel. Looking forward you see the compass, engine gauges, rudder indicator, chart plotter, radar, depth sounder, autopilot, engine controls, and a switch panel. The area has a large entertainment table and a circular seat along the aft portion of the cockpit. Great area to spend time while at sea or in port.
The Galley is forward of the salon to starboard. It is a horseshoe configuration with a large stainless-steel propane stove and oven at the end. Looking aft there are two large hinged teak doors for the access to the plate refrigeration, with good counter space there. The forward side has two stainless steel sinks with hot and cold freshwater. Also, there is a separate faucet with an under-counter filtration system. Counter space is abundant, there are several cabinets with great storage, and there is a pantry close by. There is a lead glass-doored, wine cabinet, and storage just above, that adds style and character to the cabin. All in all, this is a fully functional blue water galley, that can be used to prepare meals at sea or in port with style.
The Main Engine is a 120 HP 4-53 N Detroit diesel engine. The engine has been completely rebuilt (including exhaust) in April 2019 and only has 200 hours on it. It has a 100 amp Alternator, freshwater cooling, primary and secondary fuel filters, and morse mechanical controls. The engine purrs like a kitten and it is good to go for a long time!
The Generator is Northern Lights 6.0 newly installed in April 2019 and only has 135 hours on it. It has an impressive custom-built metal base that it is attached to for extra security and accessibility.
