Duriing the 2019 Electric Days the new Frauscher 740 Mirage Air has made its debut: the electric flagship by the Austrian yard is powered by Torqeedo.
The Frauscher 740 Mirage Air is able to reach 27 knots (50 km/h). Most of the merit goes to the powerful Deep Blue electric motor by Torqeedo, the important German company for electro-mobility in water. The technology used is mass-produced for the first time in boting, and consists of high-voltage engines, whose safety standards meet the high automotive requirements. The manufacturer offers a nine-year warranty on batteries and remote maintenance services based on cutting-edge software solutions.
New powertrain, same look
Using the latest battery technology from the automotive industry, the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air electric is not only fast but also more efficient. With two 40 kWh batteries housed in the hull, it is possible to cover up to 20 nautical miles (36 km) at maximum speed; while at cruising speed you can go as far as 54 mn (100 km). The batteries can be charged at 3.3 kW per hour at 230V or 9.9 kW per hour with the optional 400V fast charge.
Despite many changes on board, the look of the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air has remained unchanged. There’s plenty of space thanks to the central helm station and large open areas with sun lounges, seats and enough room to store equipment and accessories. The boat features a JL Audio Sound system, bow thruster, electric winch with chain and stainless steel anchor, refrigerator, lighting, and a teak flooring: more luxurious features than any other electric boat.
The Torqeedo Deep Blue 100i system grants 100 kW of continuous power and 80 kWh of battery capacity. It is available for the Frauscher 740 Mirage and 740 Mirage Air models.
The smaller Torqeedo Deep Blue 50i system with 50 kW continuous power and 40 kWh battery capacity is available for the Frauscher 650 Alassio, 680 Lido, 740 Mirage and 740 Mirage Air models. Thanks to the Deep Blue engine, Frauscher 740 Mirage Air can cruise without emitting any pollutant, and is therefore also approved for use in waters where motor navigation is prohibited.
