Mirage 36 Twin Screw Diesel Motor Yacht.
A 'classic' trawler style motor yacht built in Taiwan in 1980 of GRP. The hull, weather decks, superstructure and flying bridge are all constructed of GRP with overlaid teak decks. Vessels of this type built in Taiwan at that time were normally 'over built' by today's standards in terms of strength and quality of materials (thickness of hull and number of layers of woven overlapping fiber mats) which normally resulted in 'osmosis' free hulls, which is the case in this example.
She is a strong, safe vessel and proven design with good sea keeping characteristics. Ideal for coastal offshore cruising for a small family (covered and well protected deck walk ways and twin engines) or retired couple.
The vessel has been the subject of a significant 'refit' by the owner at considerable expense over the past few years. The scope of 'refit' works has included; mechanical (new propeller shafts, new rudders and stocks, new cutlass bearings, new PPS drip less seals, new water locks and exhaust systems throughout, new marine grade aluminium diesel and water tanks, new Muir 1000 windlass), electrical (renewal of all inboard AC shore power/generator cables, renewed all 12v DC wiring to cranking batteries/house/anchor batteries engines and controls,new LED cabin and navigation lighting, installation of two new AC Centaur 12/30 chargers and associated VCR regulators, new Westerbeke 6KVA generator), and, structural (original marine ply frames and floors f'wd. replaced with quality teak, and all table and galley tops with solid rose wood, separate heads and separate shower room remodelled, engine room bulkheads fore and aft refurbished where necessary) .
Notwithstanding the above, there remains scope for a new owner to add further upgrades to the mechanical/electrical systems as required (e.g. marine air conditioning and autopilot) and to make cosmetic improvements to the cabin areas to suite ones taste.
RED DRAGON LAUNCHED (9TH MARCH) AND UNDERGOING TESTING & COMMISSIONING. ENGINES RUNNING AND ALL SEALS PERFECT.
The pricing reflects the attractive 'classic' nature of the vessel, the value added invested in the refit and sound condition and the relatively scarce nature of comparable vessel offered for sale in the region.
