Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a well built solid family cruiser but want to make sure you don't get left behind then the Mirage 28 is definitely worth a look.

This bilge keel version outperforms similar boats of her era and with a long deep cockpit, clear sidedecks, unobstructed foredeck and grabrails running full length of the coachroof you'll feel comfortable and safe doing so.

Down below there is plenty of headroom, 5 berths, a well laid out galley and lots of usable storage. She's sat in a good yard and it wouldn't take much to get her back out on the water and sailing where she belongs.

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