Fairline Mirage Mk I ‘Kingfisher’ SALE AGREED

£14,500.00

Please Click Here For Printable Details (Kingfisher)

The Mirage is one of the most popular motor cruisers built by Fairline, having both offshore and inland capabilities. With economical twin diesel engines on stern drives, Kingfisher has manouverability at low speeds, control whilst cruising and the ability to plane in the right conditions. The sellers of Kingfisher had a detailed survey in 2022 (available for information purposes) as part of their purchase and, as with most boats of this vintage, there were some issues identified, but on the whole the vessel was well received. The boat was then moved from the Broads to Cambridgeshire where it has had little use since. A subsequent issue with the port engine was addressed by having it removed and a piston replaced, but this may require further investigation to ensure continued smooth operation. Kingfisher is priced to sell and takes into account that a purchaser is advised to evaluate the mechanical and electrical systems prior to using the vessel.
Viewings can be arranged 7 days a week by appointment please.
