Broker Remarks

This Mirage 28 mark two for sale with Network Yacht Brokers Plymouth is a great little starter boat for somebody, the owner has upgraded and maintained her to a good level with safety at sea being his first priority!
The owner has most recently upgrades the canvas stackpack, new genoa, Plastimo 4500 2 burner hob, grill & oven.
When the owner bought the boat he had the keels dropped and new keel bolts installed, this was done as a precautionary measure to ensure the keels would go on another 30+ years and to give him and future owner of the longevity of the bilge keels.
The owner has also had the standing rigging replaced in June 2012, again safety being the objection and out with the old and in with the new! 
The genoa was new in 2016 and the mainsail is also in good condition.
The benefit you have with this Mirage 28 is she is safe to go to sea on, there has been money well spent on the usual items that need replacing or servicing on yachts of this age, she is ready to sail and well worth viewing if you are looking specifically for a Mirage 28 or yacht of a similar size.

Owners Remarks:
I bought Reflection when she was based in Weston super Mare and primarily used for cruising I travelled along the Pembrokeshire coast, Iles of Scilly, Channel Islands, North and South Brittany.
The boat has only had two owners since being commissioned in 1980, the previous owner had her from new and I purchased it 2011.
She has always been wintered ashore from October to March, the previous owner and I were both in Weston Bay yacht Club, W-s-M, hence knowing the history and boat.
