CEO Michael Frauscher, responsible for production and development, explained: “At Frauscher Shipyard we see ourselves as ‘Engineers of Emotions’, always wanting to provide our boat owners a great time on the water. Our development work, therefore, focuses on both – technical innovation and design – with the objective of offering best in class products at all times.”
The Frauscher Shipyard underlined its innovative strength with the presentation of two projects in cooperation with the renowned automotive brand BMW and the engine manufacturer Torqeedo. Electric boat enthusiasts will benefit from the cooperation, as the shipyard’s electric drive systems are now even more powerful and efficient. This is ensured by a 150 PS engine and the integration of a state-of-the-art battery technology from the automotive industry (batteries usually used for BMW i3 models). The result is a significant increase in efficiency of 30 percent and optionally a considerably higher maximum speed.
Stefan Frauscher, Managing Director Strategic Marketing and Sales, about the cooperation with BMW: “From the very beginning, innovation has a high priority in the development history of our shipyard – therefore we are always reaching for strong partners, who work together with us on pioneering solutions for the entire industry. ”
