A new trend in terms of ecologically oriented and careful yachting respects nature and guarantees owners full comfort
Sustainability of a luxury yacht
The innovative 23,9 metre aluminium yacht is the result of five years of research by the Swiss company and it glides almost silently and without swaying – even over waves several metres high. The hull technology is based on the SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) construction principle. This achieves a physical shaft decoupling that reduces the rolling and heeling of the yacht by up to 90 percent. The hull lies calmly in the water even in strong swells, putting an end to the annoying swaying motion of the boat. The SolarImpact is a yacht for cruisers who want to travel further without sacrificing comfort, elegance and the latest technology, whose goal is the actual experience of the journey itself. Accommodation is for 10 across four double guest cabins. The large windows offer unparalleled views and incredible brightness in every area.
Elegant, sporty and fast
Four years after the market launch of the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air the exclusive Frauscher Shipyard presented an upgrade of its electric flagship with impressive maximized engine performance. The substantial boost in performance and efficiency is made possible by the use of a Torqeedo Deep Blue 100i drive system, with a safety concept that is proven to comply with the high standards of the automotive sector. The newly developed drive system with continuous power of 100 kW now enables the 740 Mirage Air to achieve maximum speeds of up to 50 km/h. Fully equipped with a JL Audio sound system, a bow thruster, an electric anchor winch with a stainless steel chain and anchor, a refrigerated drawer, ambient lighting and a luxurious teak deck, the 740 Mirage Air offers much more luxury and comfort than other fast electric yachts.
Solar power meets luxury cruising
The new Silent 80 is an oceangoing solar-electric catamaran that uses silent electric propulsion for unlimited range without noise or fumes and minimal vibration, she is self-sufficient and virtually maintenance-free. The catamaran is capable of going at 6-7 knots in complete silence and with unlimited range passing around 100 nautical miles per day. With 70 high-efficiency solar panels rated for approximately 25 kilowatt-peak, the Silent 80 uses maximum power point tracking solar charge regulators and the same lithium batteries as used by Tesla, which provide capacity for all-night cruising. Carrying solar panels, the flybridge adds sportiness to the look thanks to horizontal air grills inspired by supercars. Both aft and forward outside spaces are spacious to host large, yet intimate, social areas. The Silent 80 is available in several different layouts. You can find a huge saloon of about 60 m2 on the main deck, with a galley, a lounge and a dining area. The lower deck is fitted with 4 to 6 guest cabins.
The largest and most extravagant Wider
The Wider 165 is a no-compromise vessel that features advanced multi-functional systems, user-friendly technology, diesel-electric propulsion, and an enhanced relationship with the sea via the beach club area, side platforms, balcony, and an interior seawater swimming pool. Constructed entirely in aluminum, the elegant profile of the yacht was created by the in-house design team in collaboration with Fulvio De Simoni and the naval architect Lelio Falletta. The interior layout is packed with more stand out features including a generous study with terrace on the port side, private gym with terrace on the starboard side, a sauna room as well as a spacious and light owner’s cabin and ensuite bathroom. The beating heart of the Wider 165 project is its serial hybrid propulsion system combined with a 544 kWh Lithium polymer battery bank and Azimuthal pods, which guarantees hugely reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low levels of noise and vibration. The propulsion system is also completely modular, meaning the yacht 165 can cruise using only the battery packs, in Zero Emission Mode, or with up to four inline diesel generators.
