Pros:
Cons:

Sloop rigged racer/cruiser produced in Canada from early 1980'w to about 1987 by Mirage Yachts, Ltd. The 33 was transformed into the 35 in 1985 by reversing the transom. Minor interior differences set the models apart. This is an especially big, roomy boat for its size with an 11'6 beam, berths to accomodate six, dinette, and nav station/quarter berth.
The boat is tender in winds exceeding 15kts and prone to rounding up if even slightly overcanvassed. She will accelerate quickly, points moderately high and generally handles well on all points of sail. Fitted with a Yanmar diesel, she is a spacious coastal cruiser or family cruiser/racer. Construction quality is good. Materials are typical of lesser expensive
boats (not plastic, formica lined tubs with bright prints or mauve patterns), but tastefully blended combinations of teak and light colored interior molded sections.

Overall somewhat pleased with the boat, particularly in view of its use on a freshwater lake with light to moderate wave action.

Pros:
Cons:

This boat has just been surveyed and reported to be in above average condition, well maintained and with many features that are in almost new condition or recently added. It comes with a nine foot Zodiac dinghy, with an 8hp Mercury motor with less than 2 hours running time. It is attached to the boat with a Dinghy Tow System worth approximately $1,400. There is a dodger, bimini, and full enclosure with screens, new in 2000. Interior upolstery completely redone in 2001. The boat comes with a full set of instruments, 3 deep cycle batteries, custom charging system, automatic high capacity electric bilge pump, hot and cold pressurized water system, natural gas stove and oven (very safe). It has an Aeroluft 150% jib (can be sized for various wind conditions) on Harken furling, full batten main sail (with Jiffy Reefing) a Jenaker, and Lewmar self tailing winches. There is an AM/FM stereo system with 10 stack CD player and speakers both interior (Bose) and in the cockpit (fully waterproof). Additionally it comes with 2 anchors with chain and line, deck pole, life jackets, electrical adapters for most clubs on Lake Ontario and a 6 pad folding cradle. This is a fast, roomy boat that sails well even in light winds. Ideal for summer conditions on Lake Ontario. Asking price $95,000.Cdn or $70,000.US. Boat lies at Toronto, Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club, Dock H 13. For more information contact Gord Wheeler at 416-261-0195 or gawheeler@sympatico.ca
