Boat Reviews By Owners

0 -- 21' 7" MIRAGE

Model: 217 Intruder

Cockpit: Cockpit is a little small for the size of the boat, but typical of a performance-style boat with a long bow.

Cabin: The cabin is pretty good for a 21 foot cuddy, having a vee-berth, a sink to port with a one-burner propane stove mounted in a pull-out drawer, and a very comfortable lounge seat to starboard, with a porta-potty under a hinged cover in the middle. However, the vee-berth isn't level and the cushions are extremely uncomfortable.

Construction: The boat is very well-built, can take whatever you throw at it.

Handling: It rides quite well for a 21-footer. With my engine/drive setup it tops out at about 60 MPH, and tracks pretty straight at low speed.

Engine Room: Mercruiser454/Bravo3, twin counter-rotating stainless props. An unusual drive choice for a sport boat, and probably cuts a little top speed off compared to a single-prop Bravo 1, but I like it, it NEVER loses grip. It's like driving an all-wheel-drive car.

General Comments: I use it for daytime (and evening) boating on Lake Washington (Seattle). I tried overnighting on it, and have vowed never to sleep on it again, but that really isn't what this boat is for. It's a GREAT boat for general pleasure use, and it couldn't be better looking.
