Late model top-of-the-range boat. Lovely varnished teak interior. Black anodised mast, boom and spinnaker pole. Modern white gelcoat with black and grey stripes. Rare opportunity to acquire one of the best Sonatas in the fleet.

Mirage is well known in the Sonata Yacht Association of Victoria and has been set up for extended cruising by Grant Da Costa, long term member and former committee member of the association. After much agonizing, Leanne and Grant have decided to sell their irreplaceable Sonata 7 now that they spend too much time sailing big boats.

Around the edges of this page you will find photos that are links to various photo galleries of Mirage. Please click on them - a picture is worth a thousand words.
