Robert Perry designed this boat to be affordable, yet “state of the art” construction techniques were used by Mirage Yachts to create a most elegant and sophisticated cruising sloop at an unbelievably low price. Her self-bailing cockpit is spacious and a lot of thought went into the deck layout. Below there is a generous use of teak. She sleeps 6 in a cabin with 6’5” headroom. There’s the typical double forepeak cabin with head and vanity just aft and then the main salon with dinette to starboard and a settee to port with a quarter berth aft to port. The U-shaped galley is across from the navigation table just aft of the port settee. The boat sails perfectly with a well-balanced helm so that she hardly needs to be steered at all with outstanding tracking. The boat is stiff and creates little wake in her path. Performance is pleasing – a joy to sail. The standing rigging was inspected in July of 2018 and found to be in excellent condition.
