The jointly developed electric sports boat using drive technology of the all-electric Porsche Macan, was recently tested on Lake Garda, Italy, in preparation for its official world premiere at the Boot Düsseldorf trade fair in January and market launch in early 2024.
Frauscher Shipyard and Porsche have unveiled the first production model of the 850 Fantom Air or eFantom, a jointly developed electric sports boat. Designed with the drive technology of the all-electric Porsche Macan, which will hit the market in early 2024, the new e-boat was recently presented to media and other stakeholders for test drives on Lake Garda in Italy.

“This boat is a real milestone in the industry,” said Stefan Frauscher, Managing Director of Frauscher Shipyard. “The electric version of the Fantom Air is better than the version with an internal combustion engine in all driving characteristics, such as top speed, acceleration, and handling — and at the same time locally emission-free.”

The Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air is based on the Frauscher 858 Fantom Air day cruiser. It retains its 8.67 m (28.4 ft) long and 2.49 m (8.2 ft) wide hull, the design of which is almost unchanged on the outside and offers space for up to nine passengers.

“The eFantom offers everything that Frauscher and Porsche products have always promised: outstanding performance and luxurious experiences, the highest quality and exclusive, timeless design,” said
