Default 33 ft Mirage

I am looking for any infomation on a 32.7 foot Mirage boat . Probably around the late 80's or early 90's . Any information on Mirage in general would be apprecitated . I have found lots of storys on the race boats but would like some info on one that May have had outboards and a bracket .

Thanks ,
Brian

We raced a 29' Mirage back in the early 90's. The boat was a 1979 model if I remember correctly. It was real heavy, built like a tank and we beat the crap out of it. We raced it for four years, the owner sold it to another guy who raced it for a few years and last I saw it (two years ago) it was still racing in P-5 class.

Hi Tom , what condition is it in? stored inside with cover or left outside in the snow? I have not seen many 36 mirages around, what do you think it would be worth?

Glad to hear it!

This is the sister boat to your boat that Pat ran in the 80's.
It is what I used to watch go blasting down the bay as a young teenager and say to myself, self, "one day that will be you!"
A couple years later, I met up with that crew who then had your boat after selling the B-33 and never looked back since! Sad to say that the boat pictured burned to the waterline shortly after it was sold.

I loved watching you guys "Armed & Dangerous" race back in the day. That was/is one bad Mirage.
