24' Mirage

Can anyone tell me what type of headroom, or height, is in the salon of the 24' Mirage? Can a person of short to average height stand upright? I found one that we may be interested in purchasing, but haven't seen it as of yet.

Re: 24' Mirage

You'd likely have to be VERY short... like 5' short (or less)...
Mirage made 2 boats in the 24 foot range.. including the 236 and the 24... The 236 is more of the racing type, and the 24 tends towards more of a cruiser.

You can get an idea which one it is by comparing how it looks to these:

That's all I got for you until someone who owns one can chime in.

Re: 24' Mirage

I wouldn't count on more than 5 feet of headroom under the closed hatch. Probably less. Definitely a sit-down situation below.

Re: 24' Mirage

Hi. I just bought a Mirage 24 and I have not measured the headroom but I would guess 4' 6" to 4, 8" would be close.

Re: 24' Mirage

The Mirage 24 was built by Mirage Yachts in Canada and the Mirage 236 was built by Mirage manufacturing Gainesville, FL two different companies. The 236 has a very low carriage top. I guess 4' 6" or less. Most boats under 27' will not have 6' head room.

The C&C designed Mirage 24 WAS a racing boat - in its day. It was an early 1/4 Tonner.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
