We found our boat

Two weeks ago we purchased a 1987 Mirage 25 in "above average" condition according to the surveyor. Very nice and easy for two relative beginners to sail. Have it moored in Fisherman's Cove in West Vancouver, great place to sail out of.

Rejected Mirage

Looks like it has good bones but needs keel work and likely a new diesel. Yes, I have looked at it thanks. Good boat for the right owner.

Faster Is this the Mirage 27 you rejected earlier?

27' 1981 Mirage Sailboat

Fall Boat purchase

I'm hoping for the next few weeks to find something. Difference here is that there is no haul out, we sail all year around so motivation is not so strong here!

We bought our boat in October and the seller was anxious to get it off her hands so she wouldn't have to pay another months' slip fee, insurance and winter haul out. It was only three days between having our offer accepted, sending the certified check and then jumping on the boat to bring it home. You might want to be prepared to move on things quickly if you find the boat that you want and the seller wants it gone before another month of fees come around. If someone can take it off their hands more quickly, you might lose out.

The downside to buying in October was that it was just in time to haul out for the winter. So we had a beautiful sail back to our marina and then had to suffer all winter, anxiously awaiting spring.

Good luck!
