Just piping in for the searchers.
I own a Mirage 24 and sail her out of Toronto. As my first boat I couldn't ask for more. Purchased it last year so it hasn't been that long but many hours of sailing and maintenance have already been spent with it (topsides were treated with a light sanding, rubbing compound and wax and the finish came out almost perfect, bottom paint in spring, some electrical modifications, otherwise it needed nothing). Ours does not leak, at least, not anything worth mentioning. The only problem with the boat that we have had so far is that the gelcoat on the deck has not been waxed or treated in years so it's really dirty and chalky. I have spent the past few days cleaning the deck with Bar Keepers Friend (best product I've ever used to clean anything) and it's coming out great! Have started the waxing job as well and once this is done I think the boat will be in tip top shape. We could use a new main sail but that will have to wait.

Re: Mirage Yachts Ltd

I purchased a 1978 Mirage 24 and it didn't have a boom, anybody out there have a boom for sale, the main sail is 84" wide.
The fiberglass doors for the cockpit storage are also in bad shape, would purchase two of those if anybody has a boat for parts.

Don't fret about the twin mainsheets on her it can easily be changed to a windward traveller in the cockpit, We've done it. Improved performance immensely.


I just recently bought a 84 Mirage25.
I'm interested in how you convertered the twin main sheets to a travler system?

Look at Harken's website regarding a windward sheeting car system. Call Harken for information and help with your application. They helped me convert my 24 to a newer windward car system.
