The WINDY 25 MIRAGE is a sublime piece of design and craftsmanship from Windy Boats AS. The Hans J. Johnsen hull is immensely maneuverable and has been reviewed as the best handling boat in the world by Motor Boat & Yachting.
She has a true deep-vee hull – which allows her to cut through chop with zest whilst always remaining composed, safe and, above all, fun to drive.
The Mirage cockpit is a simple wrap-round U-shaped seat, beautifully trimmed, with a full teak sole, recessed fridge, sink and two rotating helm seats forward. The dash console is clear of clutter, with all switches to hand and a highly ergonomic driving position. Her cabin is fully lined; has a hanging locker, double berth and a concealed marine w.c. for over-nighting if required.
“PURPLE HAZE” has been kept on the South Coast. She is beautifully presented and exceptionally good for a Mirage of her age – her engine bay is clean, her cockpit teak and Sunbrella exterior cushions also. Only 420 hours on her KAD44 diesel, just compound polished, serviced and ready for the season!
“The Mirage has been a fantastic upgrade to the family RIB we used to have. She has given us great fun but with all the added creature comforts of a proper Windy sportsboat. She handles fantastically well, has tons of grunt, cruises very comfortably all day long and barely burns any diesel. We are a family of 4 and she is plenty big enough for a day playing in the Solent, sun bathing on anchor or even overnighting. No more worrying about anyone needing the toilet or wanting some shelter from the cold wind and sea spray. I highly recommend a Mirage to anyone. I have spent a fair amount of money on her during the last 12 months on upgrades and just replacing items that were past their best. I’ve run out of jobs to do and bits to fix, the boat is spotless.”
