Porsche and Frauscher's 850 Fantom Air Electric Boat Making Waves in Sports Waters!

Porsche, the sports car giant, and Frauscher Shipyard, a maritime legend, have teamed up to launch the 850 Fantom Air, an electric sports boat. This beauty recently made waves during its test drives on Lake Garda.

The eFantom is a fusion of two industry leaders’ expertise. Detlev von Platen from Porsche shared, “This boat embodies the innovation and tradition of both Frauscher and Porsche. It promises top-notch performance, luxury, quality, and a timeless design.”

The eFantom’s energy source is a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery, akin to the one in the Macan, situated under the rear lounge. Porsche’s wire rope mounts ensure the boat sails smoothly, even at high velocities.

For adaptability, the 850 Fantom Air offers multiple driving modes, reminiscent of Porsche’s vehicles. Modes like Docking, Range, Sport, and Sport Plus cater to various maritime adventures. Stefan Frauscher from Frauscher Shipyard emphasized the boat’s superiority in terms of speed, acceleration, and handling, all while being environmentally friendly.
