Luxury German boatbuilder Frauscher is coming out with a beautiful new
speedboat mixing modern and classic in honor of boatracing legend
racer Dino Feltrinelli. Feltrinelli, himself born of an Italian
boatbuilding family that has long been allianced to Frauscher, won
many racing trophies in the 1930s and '40s. Frauscher, founded in
1927, commissioned designer Annette Hintwirth to come up with a craft
that celebrated Feltrinelli's racing glory while showcasing the best
contemporary style. Powering the black, teak and white rocket is a
Volvo Penta V8 engine.
Hintwirth designed the front area of the boat for maximum flexibility.
A height-adjustable table turns into a foundation for the generous
lounge area, or at the touch of a button it can be made to disappear
completely into the body of the boat. The driver's seats can turn 360°
degrees to form a conversation group when the boat is moored, and real
waterproof leather was used for the upholstery throughout. At a
certain speed the wind protection shield automatically rises to offer
additional cover for the driver.
