Was MIRAGE somehow connected to CORSA and MARTINI as well??

Believe it or not I do have a brochure from 1976 somewhere thats in mint condition. I just have to find it. We were not related to corsa or martini, but our founder was the carpenter that built the original 30' Corsa hull plug that went on to become the 30 midnight, 32 midnight, 33 ocean hawk, 34 super hawaii, all the same 26 degree bottom.

I have a few pictures I've collected over the years, most have come from here, others from online ads. I'll put them on a web page and post a link later.

Please post some more pics of your boat, I'm really warming up to the way you put your boat back together.

The 32 hull was a stretched 27 signature (cut in the middle not added at the transom) that Tommy Adams was building just before he got shot. (keep in minds that the 27 signature was a 27 magnum hull with a different deck). Once he got shot, the company folded and Byng purchased the plug, finished it and created the 32 closed deck (Jim Miur designed deck). In my opinion it was one of the best running under 35' hulls ever built.

Great info on the Mirage! I've got a 32, it was Obsession race teams boat out of Mass. It was black when I got her in 94. The boat runs great and loves the rough stuff.

HOTH2O-1,
VERY NICE BOAT!!
What nuclear plant is that in the background of your pics? What body of water do you boat on?
I can't wait to see more pics of your boat!

ALBOFAZ,
I can't wait to see the pics from the old Mirage brochures!
What was the last year the Mirages were built? What was the last model that left the factory? Did slow sales and the economy do them in?

DelawareRiverRunner - Thanks!
It's a nuc plant want a be, In Cincinnati. The plant couldn't pass requirements of some sort in the late 70's early 80's so it was converted to coal. We boat on the Ohio river !

ALBOFAZ, Did Mirage have a logo?
