Merlin Mirage

Hi all,

There is a speedy boat sitting in the car park at work, nice looking beast, i spoke to the chap who owns it and he did not know alot about the history he said it was a merlin mirage and they used to be raced at one time. Its about 22ft long and has a moulded in gill bracket type assembly. Any one heard of them he said there were only 22 made.

Regards
John
