do I see a Mirage?

I am going to look at a Mirage 35'' this week end, what do people think of this boat as far as quality and long life? She looks nice!

These were reasonably well built boats. They were intended to be performance cruisers. I beleive that the 35 is a Bob Perry design. They were constructed using production boat techniques similar to a C&C of the same era.

Thanks Jeff,
I am looking at two: a 35 and a 39. The reviews are sparse, but as you say indicate well built boats.
Thanks for the reply. The 39 has some kind of mast repair, which I am curious about, and hope that it is not what I think it is from.
Have you sailed a mirage and do you own one?
