Frauscher has introduced the 747 Mirage, designed by studio Kiska alongside hydrodynamic expert, Harry Miesbauer.
With features suggestive of a supercar design such as the Z shaped split line, low nose and exaggerated feautre lines, the 747 Mirage emphasises Frauscher’s racing heritage. A lot of attention was paid to elongate the waterlines as much as possible to reduce resistance and increase straight line speed.
While the exterior shows an uncompromising focus on dynamics, the cockpit is a revelation of diversity, featuring an L-shaped bench with two foldable backrests. The co-driver’s backrest can be folded to create a sheltered chaise longue and by flipping down the main backrest, the sunbed can also be enlarged.
Customers can select from a wide range of exterior and interior colors. Also available with three different Mercruiser petrol engines and a Volvo Penta D4 Diesel option, ranging from 220 HP up to 430 HP, the 747 Mirage‘s possible top speed is 56 knots. With a generous 250 litre fuel tank, customers also have ample range for longer trips.
As with all Frauscher boats, the 747 Mirage is produced at the Frauscher shipyard in Ohlsdorf, Austria, which was newly opened in 2012. Frauscher will present the boat for her world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2014, held between the 9th - 14th September.
