High-design with zero-emission
Seawork exhibitor Torqeedo is the power behind Frauscher Shipyard’s new silent electric version of the 740 Mirage Air.
With over 90 years’ experience in yacht building, Frauscher has taken the opportunity to enhance tradition with innovation by fitting the fully electric 740 Mirage Air with Torqeedo’s Deep Blue 100i. The 100kW electric inboard motor and two lithium batteries with BMW technology (i3-type), enable the 740 Mirage Air to cruise silently at 10 km/h for over 10 hours; its top speed of near 50 km/h, gives a range of 33 km.
The whisper-quiet Deep Blue 100i 2400 used in the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air is specifically designed and constructed to power planing motorboats with the reliable, easy-to-maintain direct-drive design delivering up to 2,400 rpm at its full power range and plenty of torque 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 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.
“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.”
“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.
Torqeedo is the market leader for electric mobility on the water. Founded in 2005 in Starnberg, the company develops and manufactures electric and hybrid drives from 0.5 to 100 kW for commercial applications and recreational use.
