Broker Remarks

1977 Mirage 28
The Mirage 28 was an extremely popular fin keel family cruiser from the 1970s. The design of the interior utilises the available space very well. The boat benefits from 5’10” headroom in the saloon. The cockpit offers good protection, and the boat can be easily sailed short handed. A very well presented and well-equipped example of the Mirage 28. A 2013 survey report is available on request.


The Mirage 28 offers 5 berths in 2 cabins. Fore cabin with double vee berth and stowage. Two single berths in the main saloon, a folding saloon table with seating for 4-5 people. Full width heads compartment with marine toilet (new) holding tank fitted but never used, wash basin and storage areas. Hot & cold-water system, water heated via a gas boiler.  Galley aft to starboard equipped with a gimballed gas cooker with 2-burners, oven, and grill (2009), sink, and stowage areas. 12v fridge, cutlery, crockery included.
