Frauscher Shipyard has launched the fully electric 740 Mirage Air 7.47m leisure craft with lithium-ion batteries, able to operate for 10 hours at 10km/h, or a range of 33km at 50km/h maximum speed.

The vessel uses a Torqeedo Deep Blue 100kW electric inboard motor (pictured) and two lithium batteries based on BMW i3 automotive technology. The boat was designed by studio KISKA and Thomas Gerzer, alongside hydrodynamic expert Harry Miesbauer.  It features high-tech yet easy-to-use controls and displays, with a bow thruster for simple docking.

“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 100kW drive system we are entering an entirely new dimension of electric mobility on the water,” said  the yard’s managing partner Stefan Frauscher.

The Deep Blue 100i 2400 used in the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air is specifically designed and constructed to power planing boats. Its direct-drive design delivers performance through the full power range, with up to 2,400 rpm and substantial low-speed torque. The battery system has been tailored by Torqeedo for the marine environment and is offered with up to nine-year limited battery capacity warranty.

“The Frauscher 740 Mirage Air provides a quiet and powerful luxury yachting experience for boats that operate in sensitive areas and those with a heart for nature,” said Torqeedo CEO Dr. Christoph Ballin. “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.”
