Design Discussions

We, at Mirage Manufacturing, have chosen to take our own path in creating the Mirage Trawlers. The reason for this is that we want to build for you the ABSOLUTE BEST POSSIBLE VESSEL FOR THE INTENDED SERVICE. Many of you may hear and read from time to time of opposing viewpoints, many of which are stated as fact. We want you to be able to understand our thought process and why we’ve made certain design decisions.

We’ll explore various of our unique features on these pages, adding content on a continual basis. Discussions will be about twin screws versus singles, Shoal Draft vs. Deep Draft, Form Stability vs. Ballast, etc. Feel free to pipe in with your comments by emailing us. We love nothing better than a good discussion.
