Manufacturers Comments - (abridged from original data sheet)

Characteristically, Mirages are excellent to windward. The Mirage 2700 is no exception.
The wide-bodied hull has clean lines, a fine entry with a low centre of gravity and a high ballast ratio.
Efficient long luff genoas, mainsail with slab reefing and deck led halyards to winches make the modern sail plan easy to work.
On deck the working space is clear and uncluttered and the deck is anti-slip throughout. There's a foothold by the mast and good sized pulpit plus lifelines and stanchions.
A high coaming surrounds the cockpit, which has plenty of room to encompass the average family with shelter and safety.

Bold styling and a generous beam amidships allowed us to push the use of space in the interior to new limits in this wide- bodied new performance cruiser.
Wide side decks and a low profile cabin on a hull of good freeboard contribute to excellent headroom and a feeling of airy spaciousness in the six berth layout.
The forward cabin offers a double berth, with shelves and plenty of stowage under the bunks. To  starboard, the separate toilet has a vanity unit with wash basin and pump. Whilst to port, there's a good sized hanging locker.
In the main saloon, the berths are separated by a solidly mounted table with folding leaves, which give you that option of leaving one leaf up, with the other down for access to the fore cabin.
The galley includes gimballed cooker; stainless steel sink; an ice box and chopping board with stowage under.
To starboard is a large chart table which folds neatly away under the side deck.
Aft the quarter berth is a cosy double.
Both cabins are lines with condensation resistant material and the cabin floor is ply-decked. The layout is designed to give good access to the engine from within the cabin with engine controls in the cockpit.

Owner's comments

We have sailed her extensively over weekends and holidays during Summer 2001 and 2002, and have always enjoyed safe fast sailing. This summer we enjoyed an excellent summer cruise with our family (three weeks with all of the trappings and stores for a family of four). "DV" showed us how much fun sailing could be. 
We are now moving on to a much bigger boat as the kids and their friends are growing fast and we would also like to be able to take our two dogs!

Broker's Comments

It is a delight to have Double Vision back with us to sell. The current owner bought her through us in 2001, has upgraded her considerably, by replacing the standing and running rigging, VHF aerial, tricolour, mast electrics, lights and deck sockets.  All sea cocks have been replaced, new battery boxes fitted. Heads overhauled and all seals replaced, new gas pipe to cooker, etc. etc..
