Mirage 28

There are loads of these Mirage 28 yachts for sale. At Apolloduck* alone, there are a dozen at the time of uploading this short article.

Designed by David Feltham, the Mirage 28 is a solid, well constructed Thames Marine production boat. A masthead GRP twin keel sloop, she is like a much larger version of Thames Marine’s first successful yacht, the Snapdragon 23**, and of course, her accommodation is more commodious. With standing headroom throughout, and five berths, a full galley complete with stove, and a separate toilet, she is very comfortable. The heads compartment is accessible, both from the forward cabin and the saloon. There’s a quarter berth for the skipper and a ‘v’ berth for the kids or guests up forward.

All in all, she looks like an able coastal cruiser that could also be competitive in club handicap racing. If the going gets tough her inboard diesel will help reassure her crew they will make it back home by Sunday night, so as to be able to start work on Monday morning.
