This yacht is an excellent example of a Mark II Mirage 28’ bilge keeler ideal for sailing around the East Coast’s shallow seas. Built in 1980 she has a strong seaworthy hull with plenty of freeboard making her an exceptionally dry boat with a lot of room inside. There is a skeg hung rudder and she balances brilliantly under sail. If require it is easy to careen her on shore, comfortably sitting on both keels. She was given a complete make over and re-paint by The Burnham Yacht Harbour, in 2013, with nearly all working gear replaced with new.
She can be viewed in the water at Orford, in Suffolk.
