Mirage 37 Center Cockpit Ketch
To the best of my knowledge this was the first of the Mirage
range that Thames Marine built after the successful Snapdragon series. After the
37 followed the Mirage 28, 26,2700 etc. until the company met financial problems
and shut down.
I have never seen a Mirage 37 in Greece or in any magazines,
sites etc. I discovered these photographs in the site of Sea Venture Ltd (a
British broker company) and I copied the photographs they had for the sale of
this specific boat just for reference of the boat type. I hope that this doesn't
create a problem for them.
The Data of the boat according to the site:
