I have a mirage 236, hull #2. I live in Gainesville, Fl where Mirage is located. It is definitely built in Gainesville, Fl. Mine is partly restored, not sailing but on a restored trailer. A smaller 20 foot version was also available. Ken Fickett is the builder and is still building boats, just now cruising trawlers. I sailed mine for many years; very fast with spinnaker. I broke my rudder and had a custom one built for me by Fickett. My interior rotted out from exposure to water and I began restoring it before getting sidetracked. Ted

2) No boom.

3) No sails.

I know where to get sails, and most of the other stuff is just maintenance, and clean up.

Does anybody know where to find rudders and booms, or specs for a Mirage 236?
Are you still looking for equipment for your mirage 236? If you are not interested in restoring it, are you interested in selling it? If so, I am an interested buyer. My name is Chris Johannes, you can email me at christopherljohannes at gmail dot com or you can call me at 317-496-0806.

Hello Ted. My name is Chris, I am interested in buying an Mirage 236 Hull. Are you interested in selling yours? If not, do you know of anyone who is looking or willing to sell theirs? My hull got damaged in an accident and I want to stay with a Mirage. Thanks for your time. My email is christopherljohannes at gmail dot com.

Re: our free Mirage 236

Wow it's much later that the last post. I just purchased a Mirage 236 and I needs interior work. I will launch it 2016 summer. It was raced extensively on a lake in up state NY. It has lots of sails. The previous owners took out the bench seats on the left and the right down below and it looks like they removed the bulkhead???!! The boat has been sitting on a trailer for a few years and there are pads in the back and a "U" shaped cradle under the boat at the front. I noticed that the deck was not perfectly straight on one side, meaning that the bow might of sagged on the trailer. I am going to replace the bulkheads and the benches. I hope this boat is not totally screwed.

Re: our free Mirage 236

I also have a 1980 Mirage 236, Hull #15 retractable keel... Picked it up in Pensacola a few years ago it had no trailer found one and brought her back to New Orleans, inside of the cabin was totally destroyed water soaked and rotted. I stripped everything out of it and started from scratch inside the cabin. she was sailable but needed a good cleaning on the outside from sitting in the water and sun for a couple of years. I haven't sailed in 25 years so this should be good HA.
