The Frauscher 858 Fantom is a revolutionary 8.6 metre day cruiser in an inspiring design. Thomas Gerzer, head of development at Frauscher Bootswerft and designer of the legendary 717 GT, created the 858 Fantom with two new partners: the hull bears the unmistakable signature of Harry Miesbauer, and Gerald Kiska headed overall design. With a host of on-board comforts, excellent workmanship and superb performance, the Frauscher 858 Fantom will satisfy even the most demanding passengers. A pleasure to handle and revolutionary in design, the 858 Fantom is reminiscent of the perfection and style of German and Italian sports cars.
Every experience on the water is unique, demanding diverse features to maximise the comfort of the driver and his guests. Universality and elegance infuse the spirit of the Frauscher 1017 LIDO without sacrificing power, speed and driveability. Not outdone in any way by its inspirational sister, it has a unique character, making it easy to brand this recreation a success.

Today, this design is recognized around the world as the Grand Banks Heritage Series, an iconic design built first of wood and then, beginning in 1973, of fiberglass at a new factory in Singapore. The design was so successful, in fact that the general styling of the GB was seized by a score of other builders for fleets of look-alike yachts sold under dozens of names. None, though, could match the quality of construction for which Grand Banks is famed. In 1993, Grand Banks took another traditional boat design – the lobster boat or “Downeast” cruiser – and definitively captured its style and spirit in the launch of the Eastbay Series. With its Ray Hunt design, teak toe rails, dark blue hull with a bright gold stripe – and a powerful pair of diesels underfoot – there was no other boat that combined ageless design and high performance like the Eastbay. In 2001, many Grand Banks owners were ready to step up to a larger and more luxurious vessel, but weren’t prepared to sacrifice quality. The launch of the Aleutian Series of raised pilothouse yachts delivered with a new level of style and sophistication – along with the seaworthiness boaters have come to expect from a Grand Banks.
In each series, Grand Banks has sought to capture the spirit of a nautical ideal – and combine it with state-of-the-art equipment, meticulous craftsmanship, and superior construction techniques. It is the reason Grand Banks yachts have become such icons around the world, and why they continue to meet the high standards of discerning, demanding boaters today.

The company started when Newington bought a series of gravel pits on the River Nene and built the Oundle Marina. In 1967 he launched the first Fairline boat, a 19foot handcrafted glass-reinforced plastic river cruiser. When Newington’s son Sam, a former Royal Air Force pilot and Columbia University MBA graduate, took over in 1971, the company employed 14 people. Sam expanded the company’s sales network overseas to take advantage of the expanding Mediterranean market place – by 1979 the company employed 140 people, with production expanded by the success of 1977’s Fairline 40 model.
The company launched the Fairline Targa 38 in 2006 and it has been one of the fastest-selling models in the Fairline range, winning the prestigious ‘European Powerboat of the Year’ in the 30ft to 40ft category in 2007. In 2002 the 10,000th Fairline was completed, together with new production facilities at the original Oundle site. By 2010, the 12,000th Fairline was completed and shipped, namely a Squadron 55 to a client in Italy.
The core business of Mulder Shipyard is designing and building yachts for a worldwide clientele, making use of unique shapes, complex systems within time and budget. Quality is our priority. To achieve this aim, expertise in every discipline is of essential value.
Mulder Shipyard was established in 1938 by Dirk Mulder Sr. With a Mulder still at the helm, this traditional family business is one of the leading lights in the Dutch yacht building industry. Over the decades, the shipyard acquired a global reputation.
The builders set themselves the challenge to build a fast, light weight yacht with longevity and economical practicality. To achieve such this the latest technologies had to be used. The hull and deck are made with a composite construction of “sandwich” type using the technique of vacuum injection, enhancing the strength and lightness of the boat. Strategic and critical points of the VanDutch are reinforced with Kevlar. A V-drive arrangement of the engines was chosen to induce a sharpened aft to reach the point of the VanDutch’s center of gravity, optimizing speed and reducing fuel consumption.
Free of vibrations and not succumbed by engine sounds, VanDutch boats are uniquely smooth riding while staying discreetly quiet. VanDutch boats are easy to manoeuvre with help from the stern and bow thrusters, as a standard. Moreover, to complete this equipment, they are equipped with an autopilot and a navigation system to stay in control of the boat without any stress. The deck is covered with a teck composite, the Esthec, that gives the luxurious experience of the teak without the drawbacks of maintenance, with a multitude of color combinations available.
Established in 1992 in the village of Heeg in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, Wajer & Wajer Yachts has since profiled itself as a remarkably progressive yacht builder.

Wajer junior shares the passion for water sports, his vision and perfectionism with his father. In 1992 they together founded Wajer and Wajer Yachts in Heeg, The Netherlands. After years of stable growth Wajer and Wajer celebrates their 20 year anniversary in 2012.
