Sneak peek: Frauscher 1414 Demon, the first big cruiser from Austria

With Frauscher 1414 Demon, the boatyard from Traumsee Lake makes a four-meter leap ahead: from the (former…) flagship 1017, measuring 9.99, to this new 46-feeter, which reads 13.90 meters.

The new step up marks a further evolution for the Austrian builder, almost a metamorphosis: with the last two flagships, Frauscherfree themselves from the halo of lake-boats manufacturer (although performing and high end), entering the segment of sea crafts good for day cruising and more. Just to remind, a couple of years ago we tested the 1017 on a pretty angry sea and got to 50 knots.

The new 1414 Demon will not deny its proper nature, which is of an open boat with exclusive design inspired by the gentlemen racers from the Thirties. In this sense, much merit goes to the design studio Kiska.



Maybe it’s my bias for the vintage look, but I find this “gentleman racer” definition fitting perfectly. Surely it defines the essence of Frauscher design: sport and performing boats, born to be appreciated by classy boaters who perceive luxury by the peculiar shape, the refined color patterns, the perfection in assembly, and by the aura generated by all of these, even though it’s reflected in a premium price.


The mentioned qualities will all be featured along the q4 meters of the new Frauscher 1414 Demon, which will boast (first time on a Frauscher) an aft, full beam double cabin belowdecks, with private en-suite, while the fore part will be dedicated to galley and living (the latter transformable into a double berth).


The helm station keeps the traits of the smaller siblings, although and on a larger scale: so it really looks like a sport-car’s dashboard, maybe from the fifties. The center wheel gives the pilot a better view all around, and makes the structure a further element of decor in addition to the sun pads, the dinette and the grill counter.

Performance-wise, Frauscher 1414 Demon sports a deep-V hull with double step, born under the long term cooperation with Harry Miesbauer, while there’s three options for the powertrain: two Mercruisers 430 HP each (8.2 MAG HO DTS), two performing Mercruiser Racing (8.6 litri) 520 HP each or two diesels Volvo Penta D6 400 HP each. Whatever the choice, the boatyard reckons the top speed being in excess of 40 knots.

Some important options will be available, such as the maneuvering joystick, or the “virtual anchoring” Skyhook system.


Frauscher 1414 Demon will officially debut in January at Boot Düsseldorf, while the Mediterranean area will see the launch in the following Autumn. In this span of time, the Yard and their dealer network will provide interested clients any chance to better discovery the 1414 Demon.
