Worldwide First Serial Hybrid Propulsion System for Pleasure Boats presented atthe Genoa Boat ShowThe Frauscher Bootswerft will present a range of five different boat models which show aperfect mix of style, design and environmental awareness at the upcoming Genua BoatShow 2010. Exhibited will be the ultimate Day Cruiser the 909 Benaco, the EuropeanPowerboat of the year 2010 the 717 GT, the classic 606 Riviera and two boat models whichare equipped with a Steyr Motors hybrid propulsion system the 757 St. Tropez and the 686Lido. In order to get a full imagination of this special system, the engine itself will bedisplayed on the booth as well.The long standing collaboration between the Austrian companies STEYR MOTORS(www.steyr-motors.com) and Frauscher Bootswerft (www.frauscherboats.com) hasresulted in the exciting commercial launch of the worldwide first serial Hybrid PropulsionSystem for pleasure boats at “Boot Düsseldorf” in January 2008.Now two years later the Hybrid Propulsion System stepped up to the next level. This yearthe Italian Frauscher partner, Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli, has sold and delivered twoFrauscher boats equipped with a Steyr Motors hybrid propulsion system: at lake Garda, a686 Lido with a hybrid engine is running as a taxi boat around the city Riva which issurrounded by a motor boat prohibited area. Moreover a 757 St. Tropez with a hybridengine will be soon used in Venice.Stefan Frauscher is very delighted about this development: “We see a high potential in thismarket. Boat enthusiasts are getting more and more cautious regarding the enviromentand we can offer the perfect boat which offers all needs: elegance, fun and environmentalfriendliness.”Frauscher’s extensive experience with electric and combustion engines as well as their 80years of boat building expertise have been of significant value to STEYR MOTORS and thedevelopment process. STEYR MOTORS is well known for its low emission, light weightMarine diesel engines with electronic engine management.The environmentally friendly hybrid solution marks a new chapter in the history of pleasureboat propulsion. It not only assures zero emission and low speed manoeuvring in harbours, noiseless drive on inland waters and nature reserves, but also eliminates the need forseparate generator units for other onboard equipment. The “zero emission” electric drivemode allows for a speed of 5 knots using solely electric propulsion and switches to thecombustion engine with an easy turn of the ignition key. The ingenious propulsion thengets “boosted” by the electric drive and secures a quicker acceleration into the planningphase lowering fuel consumption and improving response as well as dynamics.Significantly reduced maintenance cost and improved ease of service, due to the brushlesspermanent magnet generator, are further irrevocable arguments that STEYR MOTORS andFrauscher Boats are introducing a serious technological novelty.STEYR MOTORS perfects the handling with the Steyr Electronic Control Centre (SCC) thatregulates all of the driver’s demands and assures convenient monitoring of all operatingmodes.The unique configuration of the hybrid propulsion will immediately allow Frauscher toseamlessly equip all of their stylish leisure boats with the sustainable innovation.For further information regarding the Hybrid Propulsion System an expert of Steyr Motorswill be at the Frauscher booth (Booth n. 119 - AA AREE APERTO preallestite).
