Broker's Comments

The Mirage 28 is a well known design from Thames Marine. She has been locally owned for the last 20 years and whilst benefitting from a fin keel (for sailing performance) at 3'8" she is relatively shoal draught. Her present owner has looked after her well and she is clean, tidy and well presented for her age, with good brightwork and upholstery below decks. She would be ideal for a couple or young family and the right size for shorthanded cruising. Only for sale due to a growing family and the purchase of a larger vessel.
These boat details are subject to contract.
