About Daria

Launched in September 1979, Daria was equipped with the latest technical and electronic equipment available anywhere in the world. This included - for the first time on a Feadship - a satellite communication system. Three Marisat satellites were accessed, using a disc antenna positioned in a dome on the mast. The whole setup - which was completely automatic - was connected to two electronic telexes and a telecopier. This satcom achievement heralded the beginning of revolutionary changes in the way in which yachts would be used.

Daria - now Mirage - is available for charter.
