There are no doubt that the Frauscher are at present, the modern icon of the design and marine skill. After the limited construction of boats as the jewels 1017 GT and the 1414 Demon. We have seen that they constructed them in such a limited quantity, that our mind boggles, for example, the one presented at Dusseldorf, signed by Thomas Rath, only seven boats have been constructed.
The Austrian shipyard had already used us to extremely high expectations regarding their products (please check the tests and verify), but seeing them running in the sea at 70 knots, it is really quite astonishing, and they did it.
The tests performed few days ago on the 1414 Demon, specifically constructed for a fussy costumer, had registered the amazing speed of 67 knots, gaining for this boat the title of “The fastest Frauscher boat ever constructed”.
The fantastic model 1414 Demon is powered by two Mercury Racing bi-turbo of 9 liters and 8 cylinders that supply a power of 1.100 HP each. They allow overrunning the 36 knots in normal version with only 800HP to the over mentioned record speed.
But it does not end here, because the Frauscher we are talking about , has installed an undiscovered ( and wonderful) T-Top music station, equipped by the electronic last generation Raymarine and a high-fidelity audio system of JL, along with the installation of 25 speakers, unable the musical power of this boat to touch 6.000 watt.
The remarkable creativities and innovations of this Frauscher, have been notices by the Institutions since, the last 12 June , the Austrian Government priced this shipyard with the “Marketing State Award “, the most prestigious price for the sustainable initiative of marketing. A Jury formed by 15 experts have motivated their decision on the results achieved in a long period and achieving the goal of bringing the mark to the attention of the world.
Stefan and Michael Frauscher are the third generation of a family that, on the last 90 years, managed the company until turning her into “the ship-yard more innovative in Europe run by a family”.
At this point, we only look forward to ask to Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli, Italian importer and distributor of Frauscher, to let us try this outstanding boat since we suffer of abstinence of Frauschers.
