With designs like the 858 Fantom, Austrian shipyard Frauscher has helped make its name by reinterpreting the forms of exotic sports cars into fast, beautiful yachts. The all-new 1414 Demon is the largest example of its handiwork yet. Like one of the world's great roadsters, the new yacht features an open, speed-driven form, carbon fiber-dressed air intakes, and more than 1,000 hp of power at the rear (stern). It also has the high six-figure price tag to go along with all that.

Frauscher's new 46-foot (13.9-m) flagship was designed by Austrian firm KISKA, which pushed the design language of other recently launched Frauscher yachts, like the 858 Fantom and 747 Mirage, to new heights and lengths. Like those two boats, the 1414 is defined by its sharp, V-shaped hull, low profile and tinted, frameless windscreen. The Demon also has a set of Audi R8-level carbon fiber side blades covering up the engine-feeding air intakes below.

The 858 and 747 are strictly day cruisers, but the Demon's added size gives it space for overnight accommodations. Its cabin sleeps up to four with a combination of master suite and convertible sitting area. The interior offers 6.4 feet (1.96 m) of headroom and includes a bathroom, kitchenette and storage space. Air conditioning and entertainment packages are available optionally.

Once you wake up in the morning, there's no reason to spend time inside when the sun is shining and ocean breeze blowing. The Demon has a comfy, generously equipped deck with a wet bar, teppanyaki grill, refrigerator, ice maker, sunpad and retractable Bimini shade.

Frauscher is currently advertising three twin engine packages: (2) 400-hp Volvo Penta D6 engines, (2) 430-hp Mercury Mercruiser 8.2L engines, or (2) 520-hp Mercury Racing 8.6 engines. Frauscher says that the Demon will get up over 40 knots (74 km/h) and that its sterndrive helps deliver maneuverability and feel akin to a smaller boat. An optional bow thruster and joystick improve the boat's nimbleness in docking situations.

We saw only a poster advertisement for the 1414 Demon at Interboot because Frauscher is holding off on the world premiere until the 2016 Boot Düsseldorf show in January. The vessel is available for order now at a base price of €748,000 (approx. USD$837,000), including 20 percent VAT. Deliveries will begin next year.
