Fresh off the Boat
Combining style and a diversity of power units, Frauscher makes a hell of a daycruiser
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.
