This Al Mason designed bluewater-ready Mason 33 is a standout in its class, and this one-of-a-kind refit has brought Pyxis fully up to new yacht standards.
In 2017 this vessel underwent a total refitting which has resulted in a virtually new vessel, combining the best characteristics of the original hullform and cabin layout with new hardware, sails, sail handling equipment, navigation electronics, and cosmetic upgrades.
The construction is solid, the deck is well laid out with excellent equipment, with rigging and sail handling equipment far exceeding any other cruiser on the market. Moreover the interior is designed with living comfort in mind and is exquisitely finished.
Pyxis is equipped as a serious bluewater offshore vessel, having accomplished multiple ocean crossings and explorations of both the East and West coasts of North America.
This boat is a MUST SEE – Please see the 3D Virtual Walkthrough on the Calibre Yacht Sales website
