Fresh off the Boat

Com­bin­ing style and a di­ver­sity of power units, Frauscher makes a hell of a day­cruiser

Bespoke - - WHOA! -

Frauscher is a highly re­spected fam­i­ly­owned Aus­trian boat builder with 90 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the game. It re­cently launched a fetch­ing new 14-me­tre flag­ship yacht (called the 1414 De­mon) that has been steal­ing all the head­lines but we’re still par­tial to one half that size – the lit­tle 7-me­tre Mi­rage Air. Fea­tur­ing the brand’s sig­na­ture ver­ti­cal bow, low pro­file, and flared stern – it’s avail­able with a choice of three dif­fer­ent Mer­cruiser petrol engines, a Volvo Penta Diesel op­tion, or even a to­tally elec­tric Deep Blue propul­sion unit. In our eyes, it’s the best look­ing cen­tre-con­sole on the mar­ket to­day. And, with a start­ing price of 145,000 USD, it of­fers some de­cent value for money too.
