Frauscher Boats’ 1017GT won the Performance Boat category at the Motor Boat Awards in 2014.

Miami Nautique International said it signed a deal with European builder Frauscher Boats and will add its luxury yachts to the brands the dealership sells.

Miami Nautique said Frauscher has been honored at the Motor Boat Awards on multiple occasions and has won the Performance Boat category.

“For the past 10 years I have been looking for an exceptional luxury brand that would align with the quality, high-end performance and values that my domestic and international clients have come to expect at Miami Nautique International,” owner and CEO Henrik Laursen said in a statement.

Laursen said he recently traveled to the Dusseldorf Boat Show in Germany, where he met with Frauscher Boats and found what he had been searching for.

“These boats touch me emotionally, and align perfectly with our Nautique product,” Laursen said.

Miami Nautique, which is in the heart of the Miami Design District, said it has been a Boating Industry Top 100 Dealer for the last five years.
