2009 Sylvan Mirage 8520 Cruise
- Stock #084557 -
Fully Loaded And Ready To Go!
I'm going to be honest right from the start. When I found out I would be testing the new Sylvan Mirage 8520 Cruise with RPT tubes, I got very excited. I'm a big fan of this performance pontoon insurgence and an even bigger fan of the RPT tubes. The way they slice through the water and cut waves makes for an unparalleled ride.
The interior of the Mirage Cruise is nothing out of the norm. It has the usual facing lounge seating arrangement in the bow, along with a spacious L shaped lounge at the stern. All of the upholstery is premium vinyl, so the seating is comfortable enough for a nap.
The helm features a captain's chair similar in stature and comfort to my dad's lazy boy and access to the transom and the 90-hp mercury is simple and convenient. Nothing out of the norm happening here...but this is just fine with me.
Below is another story. Sylvan's goal with this model was to achieve triple log speeds with a twin log configuration and less horsepower on the back.
It's often easy to plateau in pontoon performance, which can sometimes lead to almost a waste of horsepower.
Sure a third log increases buoyancy, but it increases weight as well. So Sylvan hit the right chord by sticking with just the two logs, especially since they're RPT logs. A fine balance has been struck here between leisure and performance, form and function.
You may be more than content with cruising in the luxury of the Mirage Cruise 8520, after all "cruise" is in the name. But sometimes you want to put the throttles down and show off to the neighbors, because there is nothing cooler than a pontoon that planes.
