The vessel was designed by Alvin Mason, A legendary designer who had also worked for Sparkman - Stephens and Philip Rhodes, two navel architecture firms whose legacy in American Yachting cannot be overstated. The Mason 63' not surprisingly is reminiscent of the classic Rhodes and S.S. motor-sailors.
TE VEGA is a center cockpit, three stateroom design with a spacious flush teak deck. She has been professionally maintained over the last few years with great attention to detail and recently completed an extensive refit with numerous upgrades. In addition, the vessel is in a transferable LLC which can save the next owner significantly on sales tax.
