    For all practical purposes, the Mirage 33 and 35 are the same boat. The water line, sail area, beam, draft, and interior layout of these two boats is identical. The main difference is that the Mirage 35 has a reverse transom, weights a few hundred pounds more, and has an overall length that's two feet longer than the 33 foot model. The 35 footer is also supposed to have been built with a slightly nicer interior. These boats have a fairly large interior which featured 6' 5" (1.96m) of headroom. In their day, the beams of these boats would have been considered slightly wider than average, and this would have been especially true of the 33 foot model.

    It is interesting to note that these were the last two Mirages designed by Robert Perry. Mirage Yachts largely established itself as a keelboat builder with models drawn by Perry. Later Mirage models with aft-cabins were the work of French designer Phillippe Harle.
