TimeSquare 20: Freedom Newly E-volved
New electric boat TimeSquare 20 represents another milestone in long history of innovation at Frauscher shipyard
Spectacular models are the trademark of Frauscher. The latest development of the premium brand is also in line with the company’s philosophy of ‘engineers of emotions’. The TimeSquare 20 – a twin-hulled electric boat – fascinates with innovation and a striking design.
The experienced boat builders designed and constructed the catamaran around customer wishes and their user habits. The focus was on the needs of existing and potential Frauscher customers. The result? A drive technology that makes the boat extremely maneuverable and quiet.
‘With the TimeSquare 20, we have redefined electric boating,’ explained Frauscher managing director Michael Frauscher. The heart of the concept? ‘Excellent driving characteristics with low energy requirements – we have created a retreat on the water with all the comforts you would want from a boat,’ said Frauscher.
The displacement of the catamaran is significantly lower than of a monohull. This reduces the energy requirement and thus increases the range. Whether cruising or at anchor, the TimeSquare 20 lies very calmly in the water and offers an extremely generous seating and lounging area. The twin-hull design also ensures maximum stability and thus an incomparable feeling of well-being on board.
Quiet and powerful
Two electric outboard engines with up to 2 times 10 kW of continuous power and up to 30 kWh battery capacity provide efficient propulsion. They turn mooring into child’s play and operate as quietly as a whisper, even at high speeds. Thanks to its innovative hull design, the TimeSquare 20 achieves a similar top speed and range as the Frauscher 740 Mirage Air – with significantly less energy expenditure.
Of course, Frauscher has not sacrificed functionality: a refrigerator for cool drinks, sun protection for the whole boat and a high-end sound system round off the feel-good experience on board. The generous use of high-end materials such as carbon fiber not only looks good but also reduces weight. The TimeSquare 20 thus not only offers a new dimension in design and comfort in the field of nautical e-mobility, but also a quantum leap in terms of efficiency and range.
