What do you get when you put the best engineers from Porsche motor sports together with one of the most reputable watercraft designers of the generation? You get a sleek, powerful yacht that has an interior that would rival a mansion and the acceleration and handling of a Porsche 911. And that’s exactly what Fearless International Inc did.
Fearless International Inc , a well know luxury performance boat manufacturer, along with Porsche’s Design Studio have completed a scaled model of the company's new 44 foot performance speedboat. The new design has been christened the “Fearless 44.” While sharing some technology with its predecessor the “Fearless 28,” Fearless International incorporated some of their latest innovations into the 44. The company believes these innovations have never been seen in the boating industry thus far.
Some of the standard features include:
- Twin step racing hull.
- Tailored interior design by Porsche Design Studios
- Custom racing bolster seats
- Electric powered retractable swim platform
- Flexible racing motor configuration with 2 and 3 engine packages
- Teak cockpit sole
- Automotive styled racing windshield
"Since its unveiling at the Miami Boat Show, Fearless Yachts has taken the industry by storm and established the brand's pedigree. I feel that with the introduction of the Fearless 44 we will make even larger waves in the yachting industry," according to Jeffrey Binder, CEO of Fearless International Inc.
However, not all of the vibe is going to Fearless. Porsche has also been receiving praise from both the boating and automotive world. This new design is a marriage between 2 companies on opposite ends of the spectrum within the racing community. We no longer have to sacrifice comfort and style for performance. Together, they have rewritten the rules in the “go-fast” community, and they have been changed for the better.
As long as everything stays on schedule, the Fearless 44 is scheduled to makes its debut at the Miami Boat Show in February of 2008 and be available to the public in March.
