QUIET WOMAN will be in Tortola. BVIs around the first week in December 2019 after summering on the hard in Antigua (covered). Her sale is motivated by her owners finding their next boat after 21 years. This would be a propitious time to have a look if offshore passaging and island cruising are in your plans and future.
There was consensus among10 Mason owners who have been aboard, all were effusive in complimenting the owner on upgrades, improvements, condition, gear & equipment renewal and plain old maintenance.
As sleek as she is stable and as practical as she is luxurious, QUIET WOMAN is a true, blue water, cruising yacht.
Fitted out for any sailing adventure with the performance a serious sailor demands and the comforts of home a sailing family requires. In every harbor she is the prettiest girl at the dance; above and below deck.
In twenty-five knots she is laughing out loud. In rough weather she is a steady, comfortable ride and a good night's sleep off watch.
When a lifelong sailor and President of a major marine manufacturing company embarked on his dream of an open-ended sailing adventure, he chose a Mason 53'--or maybe she chose him. Everywhere you look you see the result of over 20 years of loving stewardship.
