Sylvan Mirage 8522 LZ (2013-) Test Video

The Sylvan Mirage 8522 comes in two different versions, with only slight changes to the layout differentiating between the CR and LZ versions. Our time onboard the LZ version showed her to be a comfortable boat in brisk chop and forgiving in sloppy conditions generated by 20 mph winds. It is not often we test boats in winds that high but with her Revolutionary Planing Technology (RPT) tubes we stayed comfortable and dry at speed.
