A true yacht masterpiece

The top-flight jury in the nominating procedure for the German Design Award has very high expectations of the contestants. Only pioneering products from the international design landscape with design features that stand out from the crowd are considered for the award, which is given once every year. The winner in the category Excellent Product Design 2018: the Frauscher 1414 Demon. Designed in partnership with design studio KISKA, experts are impressed with the ‘unconventional automobile aesthetics that stand out from the usual yacht design standards’ as well as a ‘unique interior with a diagonal and open design that gives the impression of becoming larger and larger the further one goes in.’

Indeed, this almost 14-metre offshore yacht combines the unique Frauscher design with the perfect living space. The 1414 Demon offers more room than any Frauscher yet. A well-designed lounge with a large bathing platform and a well-equipped bar in the outdoor area complement an interior with plenty of headroom, a large bath, a kitchen unit, a large corner seating area and sleeping space for up to four. The jury argued as follows: ‘In the design of the Frauscher 1414 Demon, the lifestyle design idiom was applied in a masterly fashion to the theme of the yacht. The result is a successful combination of classic yacht elements, automotive design and high functionality with intelligent detail solutions and luxurious comfort, in which the clever space concept makes the cabin appear even larger than it is.’
