The text is as:

"Thames Marine, best known for its Snapdragon range, produced a variety of other fast cruising yachts in the mid-to-late 1970s which sold in reasonable numbers until the company fell out of cheaper Continental imports. The mirage 28 from 1975 was one of the most popular, with other models ranging from 7,62m (25 ft) up to 11,28m (37 ft). The hull was a well-balanced cruising shape with modest draught and the option of bilge keels to reduce it still further. Performance and handling in either configuration was steady and well mannered but not electrifying. She had good headroom below and four/five berth accommodation. The forecabin is on the small side ahead of a heads which occupies the full beam of the boat. The saloon has a settee/berth to port, which pulls out to a double and a quarter berth. Opposite the settee, which is too short to sleep on, is an aft facing chart table and a large practical galley. She was offered as a kit for home completion and was also popular with charter fleets, both facts worth checking when buying second-hand".
