Frauscher is once more redefining the luxury day cruiser segment with the introduction of the 747 Mirage luxury daycruiser.
Some people are fortunate to be in a position where they can ‘treat’ themselves to a new supercar or indeed add to an existing collection. But what about this as an alternative, a true supercar for the seas and better still at a lower cost than most super cars in the market today. Austrian-based boat-builder, Frauscher have produced the stunning 747 Mirage, a luxury day cruiser that is capable of speeds up to 56 knots coupled with sublime looks. Supercar or supercruiser? It’s a tough choice!
A short while back we featured the Frauscher 858 Fantom and the 747 Mirage continues the same theme thanks to the skills of design studio KISKA, alongside hydrodynamic expert Harry Miesbauer. The features of the 747 Mirage are even more radical. Not only are they clearly influenced by supercar design, they also emphasize Frauscher’s racing heritage.
The brands CEO, Gerald kiska commented: “The 747 Mirage further differentiates the Frauscher brand with a strong design language that is distinct both in its sophistication and its clear link to automotive design. Classic Frauscher design features like the “Z” shaped split line are carried over, while the low nose, exaggerated feature lines and impressive side air intakes result in a design that is sophisticated, strong and supercar-inspired. In terms of performance and styling, there is nothing like the 747 Mirage in its class.”
While the exterior shows an uncompromising focus on sporting dynamics, the cockpit is a revelation of diversity. Several very practical innovations profoundly increase the usability to a previously unknown level for small, high performance day cruisers. Starting from the generous bathing platform at the stern, guests can reach the main cockpit area through the gangway without walking over the cushions.
The main cockpit area features 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 be enlarged as well.
The big cushion in the cabin can also be fastened on the front outside deck of the 747 Mirage to create an additional sunbathing area.
Numerous shelf spaces combined with optional equipment, including a bluetooth equipped audio system, fridge and bimini top, create a boat that is much
more versatile than the breathtaking, minimal design initially suggests.
Additionally, customers can select from a wide range of exterior and interior colors and the characteristic low nose design gives the driver a great front view regardless of speed. 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 performance matches its looks, putting the possible top speed at 56 knots. With a generous 250 liter fuel tank, customers also have enough range for longer trips as well.
As with all Frauscher boats, the 747 Mirage is produced at the Frauscher shipyard in Ohlsdorf, Austria, which was newly opened in 2012.
