Seems like it. Surprised at only 25 considering the large number of Mirage built boats around. They were the boat builder I knew best. Owned three of their boats myself and sailed countless miles on friends Mirages. Not the very best, but always a lot of boat for the money.

One thing I forgot to mention re the Mirage 33/35 - There were failures initially of the stem plate casting at bow - Most should by now have been upgraded using a kit Mirage supplied. It was a design fault in the original boats. I forget exact details, but I think it involved adding a U-bolt and some re-inforcing plates.
