Porsche and Frauscher Shipyard are joining forces to revolutionize sustainable mobility on the water with their latest collaboration. Prepare to set sail with the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air, an electric yacht that combines Porsche’s renowned E-Performance with Frauscher’s expertise in boat manufacturing. This dynamic partnership aims to redefine luxury experiences while promoting eco-consciousness and delivering exceptional performance.

(B) Lutz Meschke, Deputy Chairman and Member of the Executive Board for Finance and IT at Porsche AG envisions inspiring customers and turning their dreams into reality through this groundbreaking project. Meanwhile, Stefan Frauscher, CEO responsible for Marketing & Sales at Frauscher Shipyard, emphasizes the growing social acceptance and the irresistible benefits of electric drives – the quietness, the absence of odors, and the unwavering reliability.

With a legacy dating back to 1927, the Frauscher Shipyard has been at the forefront of electric boat production since 1955. Porsche’s collaboration with Frauscher signifies a remarkable opportunity to expand its influence in the industry. Both companies, rooted in family traditions, are committed to innovation, design, and unwavering quality.

Inspired by the sleek Frauscher 858 Fantom Air daycruiser, the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air will showcase Porsche’s meticulously engineered drive technology, initially tailored for road vehicles but skillfully adapted for marine adventures. Under the hood – or rather, beneath the waves – lies the impressive Premium Platform Electric (PPE). This advanced technology encompasses a high-capacity lithium-ion battery boasting around 100 kWh, a state-of-the-art synchronous electric motor (PSM), and the necessary power electronics.

To ensure seamless charging, the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air offers both AC and DC charging capabilities, leveraging Porsche’s cutting-edge 800-volt technology for rapid charging at dedicated DC stations. Jörg Kerner, Vice President of Product Line Macan at Porsche, promises an electrifying experience, drawing parallels between their pursuit of creating the sportiest electric Macan and their ambitious foray into the waters with the Fantom Air. Kerner praises the boat’s superb driving properties, signature Porsche E-Performance, and the flawless adaptation of their latest-generation electric motors and state-of-the-art battery and charge management systems for aquatic exploits.

Designed to accommodate up to nine passengers, the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air offers an exclusive pre-order opportunity for 25 lucky enthusiasts through Frauscher. Scheduled for delivery in 2024, these limited-edition models epitomize the fusion of Porsche’s innovative electric technology and Frauscher’s dedication to luxury craftsmanship.

Get ready to embark on a new era of sustainable luxury yachting as Porsche and Frauscher set sail towards a greener, exhilarating horizon.
