Since her world premiere in Cannes and first place at the “Salone Nautico” gala in Genoa, one thing has been clear: wherever the Frauscher 1212 Ghost Air appears, it turns heads with its synthesis of dynamics, emotion and space. The design, performance and finish of the Frauscher 1212 Ghost Air bear the distinctive signature of its closed sister model.

Through targeted interventions in the layout, the development team of Thomas Gerzer, Stephan Everwin (SE Design) and yacht designer Harry Miesbauer succeeded in creating a fascinating new interpretation of the day cruiser that promises one thing: endless fun. A free-stand- ing, frameless steering position makes way for the inviting forward area and is also the entrance to the double berth. Here, comfortable sleeping accommodation and a bathroom with a headroom of 1.90 metres await.

A bow that inspires

After the laterally integrated outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, sink and grill, the spacious seating and lounging area opens up. Here, too, the developers have captured the typical spirit of the Air models. The height-adjustable table transforms the seating area into a sun pad in no time at all. The table can also disappear completely into the floor for more freedom of movement, becoming a dance floor – sounded by the high-end JL audio sound system. This feature was adopted from the larger 1414 Demon Air and remains a unique selling point in the market environment.

Full carbon T-Top

The sporty overall impression of the 12-metre motorboat is created by a lightweight T-top made of full carbon. It seems to float weightlessly above the steering position and, thanks to its ingenious construction, does not need any additional linkage for stabilisation. The result: minimalist in form, dynamic in expression, convincing in function. A bimini version with stowable poles is also optionally available.

Design and Handling

The Frauscher 1212 Ghost Air combines classic Frauscher design features such as the side air intakes with advanced performance features. The two pronounced steps bring the boat into planing speed faster and provide a smooth and dry ride. Powered by twin Mercruiser petrol engines or twin Volvo Penta D6-440 sterndrive diesels, the boat offers a range of up to 300 miles. And top speeds of over 40 knots.
