1977 Mirage 28
The Mirage 28 was an extremely popular fin keel family cruiser from the 1970s. The design of the interior utilises the available space very well. The boat benefits from 5’10” headroom in the saloon. The cockpit offers good protection, and the boat can be easily sailed short handed. A very well presented and well-equipped example of the Mirage 28. A 2013 survey report is available on request.
An early viewing is highly recommended. Viewing by appointment through our Gillingham Office on 44 (0)1634 571605.
