Frauscher 1414 Demon Air is the “Best for fun” boat of the year. We will see it up close again at the Boot in Dusseldorf 2020, scheduled from 19 to 27 January. In the meantime, let’s tell you a little more about this purebred.
First of all the lines are signed by Studio Kisk with the straight and vertical bow, the walls with the carving “Z-shaped” and the windshield without a frame. An aggressive appearance has given both by the shape of the hull and the side air intakes, made of carbon, a material that the shipyard uses for its lightness and strength.
Thanks to the central and rear position of the wheelhouse, the Air variant offers more space and comfort than the previous Frauscher models. On the deck, at the bow, there is a lounge that can be transformed into a sunbathing area if necessary, while behind the console there is a cabinet, another lounge, a large sunbathing area, and a bathing platform. In the cabin, whose access is adjacent to the console, there is a bathroom 195 cm high, complete with shower and toilet. In two separate spaces there are four beds that can be very useful for short cruises.
One of the distinctive features of this yacht is the T-top, made of carbon fiber and weighing only 150 kilos. In addition to protecting from the sun and characterizing the aesthetic layout of the unit, the T-top houses the speakers for improved hi-fi acoustics on board, as well as the LED lighting system. An electrified table can be found in the bow relaxation area, which can be lowered to the level of the seat cushions to create a sheltered sunbathing area but can also disappear completely into the cockpit floor.
1414 Demon Air is manufactured entirely in Frauscher’s Ohlsdorf, Austria; here the company can offer its customers a very high level of customisation, starting with the colour of the hull and trim or the choice of engines, through to the materials used, the sound system or the on-board electronics. Frauscher models are distributed exclusively in Italy by Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli, based in Gargnano, a renowned tourist centre in the centre of the western coast of Lake Garda.
