Re: Shopping around for the 10-20yr boat, need some info on the CS33's
I believe a closer comparison would be the Mirage 35 and CS36T and in that case the mirage's are selling for 10,000 to 15,000 less as per soldboats data
I think Mirage owners would be happy to hear that! But in reality, the two boats are really in a different class. Displacements provide a guide: CS36 15,500lb; Mirage 35 10,000lb; CS 33 10,000lb; Mirage 33 9,300lb. In rough terms, we paid for boats by the pound!
The Mirage 33 and CS-33 were on market at same time. CS higher quality finish & better sailing performance, Mirage more interior room, better engine and better glasswork. The Mirage 35 is same boat as 33 with reverse transom. The 35 had gradual improvement in interior finish up until end of production in late 80s.
Mirage made a practice of extending their Robert Perry boats - 26 became 27, 30 became 32, 33 became 35. Mostly by adding reverse transom. Except for the 32, which I seem to recall they just measured differently!
