Broker's Comments

After 15 years in the same ownership, this lovely Mirage 28 is sadly up for sale. The owners are putting away their charts and giving somebody else the chance to own their pride and joy. She has been upgraded over the years with a replaced engine, nearly new sails and standing rigging as well as regular maintenance. A very comfortable cruising yacht with generous headroom and space in the cabin. With bilge keels she will let you explore the estuaries and coast line as well as take your further afield. She is regularly wintered ashore. Call Stephen to arrange a visit to see this Mirage 28.
