Pros:
Cons:

We purchased our Mirage 24 Hull #329 in 1996. We sail it along the coast of Nova Scotia. We have added CDI furling,dodger,stern ladder,bilge pump (manual).
We have sailed this boat in a cruising mode,and she provides a safe fast platform. This model is a very stiff,stable and fast boat, very competitive should you wish to race.
The only drawback is the lack of standing headroom,otherwise a great first boat and learning platform! Love this boat! Would recommend it to anyone in the market for this size.

Pros: Points greats, fast, huge cockpit, Tac's quickly
Cons: Head room in the cabin

I sold my Mirage 24 for a Mirage 27 but I still miss sailing her. Great Sea worthy boat, I have sailed her strong winds and light. Hull is thick, Deck's are strong, lines are beautiful. C&C design but built by Mirage Yachts in Quebec.

Pros: solid design, quick, attractive, affordable
Cons: She's fast and manouverable but compromises interior headroom space.

Recently purchased #263 - last hull built in 1976. It's in great shape and was very affordable. A great little boat to invest some time into making it a comfortable weekender. Might be hard to justify a survey as many are selling for less than $5k Cdn, but it would depend on your knowledge and ability to assess it yourself. I opened up everything, crawled through the bilges and cockpit lockers, examining areas most people don't take the time to check and found this 33 yr old boat to be clean, dry, and stress free. I hauled it out the first week and have spent the time to recondition it before launching two weeks later and it is an amazing, fun boat to sail. If considering to purchase, expect the need for TLC but that should be reflected in the purchase price. Inspect behind the cooler box which can be removed from under the companionway stairs. Look for a clean, dry hull/bilge. Also inspect the rudder when the boat first comes out of the water. I drilled a small hole in the bottom and did get brown water dripping slowly, but the rudder is still solid and should be easily repairable this winter. Check port and stb interior shroud attachment points for stress. I was fortunate while on the hard to serendipitously meet the man who actually laid the fiberglass for this boat back in Montreal and he attested to it's excellent design and construction. Anyone who would like to see pictures of my little beauty can drop me a request and I will provide a link to photobucket. I really had fun reconditioning this boat!
