AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Renowned yacht builder Frauscher Shipyard, who has been building some of the world's most luxurious yachts since 1927, has launched a clean, silent electric version of its 740 Mirage Air powered by Torqeedo's Deep Blue 100i.

The fully electric 740 Mirage Air further enhances tradition with innovation, high-tech features and eco-friendliness. Installed with a Deep Blue 100 kW electric inboard motor and two lithium batteries with BMW technology (i3-type), the 740 Mirage Air is the ideal day cruiser.

Owners can cruise silently at 10 km/h for more than 10 hours, appreciating both the natural world and the yacht's spacious, centre-console layout, distinctive design and extraordinary quality. At its top speed of near 50 km/h, the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air has a range of 33 km.

"At Frauscher Shipyard we see ourselves as 'Engineers of Emotions' and we always want the owners of our boats to have a great time on the water. With the powerful 100 kW drive system we are entering an entirely new dimension of electric mobility on the water," said Frauscher Shipyard's managing partner Stefan Frauscher.

The 7.47-metre yacht was designed by studio KISKA and Thomas Gerzer, alongside hydrodynamic expert Harry Miesbauer. The dynamic lines are suggestive of supercar design but inside you'll find all the creature comforts one could desire: a silent, environmentally friendly electric drive, refrigerated compartment, high-tech yet easy-to-use controls and displays, large sunbathing area, electric windlass, and bow thruster for foolproof docking.

The whisper-quiet Deep Blue 100i 2400 used in the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air is specifically designed and constructed to power planing motorboats. The system's reliable, easy-to-maintain direct-drive design delivers extraordinary performance at its full power range, with up to 2,400 rpm and incredible torque delivered at low rpm.

The 40 kWh Deep Blue batteries installed in the 740 Mirage Air bring the latest in automotive-grade lithium-ion technology from the famed motor works of BMW. The batteries feature industry-leading energy density and a comprehensive safety system. Torqeedo has tailored the characteristics of the Deep Blue battery to make it suitable for the marine environment and is offering up to a nine-year limited battery capacity warranty.

"With an industrially engineered, fully integrated electric drive system and the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Frauscher Shipyard, this electric yacht will attract the eye of discerning owners worldwide."
