Broker's Comments

The popular bilge keel Mirage 28 makes an ideal family cruiser at a modest price. They are robust, well made and quite swift for a bilge keeled boat of their era.

Their deep, long cockpits have plenty of room, their clear side decks and uncluttered foredeck make them easy to move around and the running rigging leads aft, to make short handed sailing a breeze.

The shallow draft makes them ideal for exploring local creeks, whilst down below, they offer comfortable & surprisingly spacious accommodation for their size, with a decent galley and saloon, a separate forward cabin, berths for 4 and good headroom throughout.

This particular example, owned by an engineer / keen sailor, is current and set up well. There are two forms of cabin heating, new sails in 2020, a windvane self steering system and a dinghy in superb condition.

If you require a good cruising boat at a budget price, look no further.
