What is a Mirage Eclipse?
The Mirage Eclipse is a stand up pedal board with gear tie downs, a bow handle and a kick up rudder. The vessel is designed to be operated by a person standing on the board, holding onto the handle bars and standing on the pedals for propulsion. It can reach a maximum speed of 10 knots.
In NSW this vessel falls under the definition of a vessel intended for use as a surfing accessory.
The Mirage Eclipse does not require registration, and the operator is not required to hold a boat licence as the vessel is not powered.
