Faro5 Wood Conquers 1st Place in the Gussies Awards 2022

The Gussies, powered by Plugboats.com, are the only international boating awards exclusively dedicated to electric boats. A global audience of almost 15 000 boat enthusiasts and an international judging panel of 19 e-boat experts have recognized the Faro5 Wood as Best-in-Class in the under 8m category. Over 1000 boats from 21 countries were evaluated.


“We could not ask for anything more, or anything better. This means we are currently producing the best 5-meter electric boat in the world, and that’s even before we talk about its solar-powered charging dock.” Stated Nuno Amaral Frazão, CEO of Faroboats, when faced with these great news.


Faroboats, makers of the first fully self-sustainable solution for luxury leisure boating in the world, have been steadily growing their presence across the World. This major Award confirms that Portuguese naval design is vibrant after 500 years, and that Portuguese maritime expertise is still smoothly sailing.

Faroboats Brings Manufacturing Back Home by Partnering with World-Class M.A.R./Nelo

Faroboats have decided to bring all its manufacturing back home to Portugal, regaining full control over the quality and premium finishing of their products. While the first Faro5’s and the Solar Charging Dock prototypes were produced at a Central European shipyard, the Faroboats team soon felt that production should be brought closer to home at this early stage, for further quality control.

We needed a World-Class Partner with vast International experience, and we certainly found it with M.A.R./Nelo. Anyone who has had any contact with high- performance worldwide competition in kayaks and canoeing knows this Brand: with 93 Olympic Medals conquered aboard their watercraft, they’re quite simply the best in the world. Their superb manufacturing facilities in Northern Portugal will be more than capable of producing the Faro5 and its Solar Docking Station to our demanding standards.

This move forms a natural alliance: an established global player expanding its water-bound production capabilities will be providing state-of-the-art production facilities and specialised staff to a young, ambitious and highly innovative watercraft company.
