Broker's Comments

An ideal bilge keel cruiser for exploring the east coast, or for that matter anywhere else. The Mirage 26 has good headroom and sleeps 5. This boat is in commission and has a good level of equipment; little needs doing to get her ready for the next season.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
