The Faro5 is exclusively produced with FSC-certified, sustainably forested Cryptomeria wood from the Portuguese Azores islands.
The uniqueness of the Faro5 is highlighted by the exquisite hues and veins of the Cryptomeria Japonica wood (sometimes called Japanese Cedar). Pleasantly scented, reddish-pink in colour, lightweight but strong, waterproof and resistant to decay, this outstanding wood is perfect for a XXI Century Runabout like the Faro5.
But the best thing about its use is that we can produce at least five Faro5’s using one single, sustainably forested, Cryptomeria Japonica tree.
At Faroboats, we believe that Luxury can be Green.
Some Luxury brands around the world have launched scattered creations that focus on sustainability, but we should be honest about it: sustainability has not often been at the top of most classical luxury brand’s priorities. This is changing, obviously, but the reputation damage is already there, compounded by decades of indifference. We are all to blame.
Fortunately for us, and for the planet we share, new luxury brands are arising today that place eco-friendliness at the very top of their priorities, right from inception. And Faroboats is one of them. A new power boating concept that has materialised with the Faro5 and the Faroboats Solar Set Solution - at once redefining the concept of self-sustainability.
Everything we do has to respect the environment and the planet. When we develop products, when we produce them and when we operate them. We pick each single raw material on the basis of its environmental impact. We strive to use sustainable methods, sustainable practices, and self-sustainable solutions. Uncompromisingly.
Our Faro5 is clearly inspired by its 1920’s ancestors - with a few environmental twists.
