This ad is about the Faro Open, however, the technical description, prices etc, are unchanged compared to the Faro 5 and therefore we have taken over in full.
The Faro Open is an open boat with similar characteristics as the Faro 5. However, this boat has a large bench around a table. This table is adjustable, by lowering it you can create a sun bed. The boat is suitable for 7 people. The skipper stands / sits between or behind the passengers, this way he / she can effortlessly enjoy the fun of the fellow passengers. With many boats it is often the case that the passengers are completely or partially behind the skipper.
On the pictures you will find the rendering drawings of the Faro Open and not unimportantly, scale models of this Faro Open. The first model is currently being built, so unfortunately we do not yet have pictures of the real boat.
Nevertheless, it is possible to already subscribe for this boat, which will go into production in early January. If you want to have the boat next summer ( sounds still far away ), we recommend you to subscribe for this Faro Open.
For further information we recommend you to read the text about the Faro 5, here are the engines / prices and for example the sailing times mentioned.

Definitely a singular vessel, Faro5 immediately attracts attention on the red carpet at the entrance to the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022 . Faro5 is a wooden runabout that looks like it just came out of a silent film from the 1920s and combines styles from the past with modern technologies. It glides smoothly on the water, silently, with zero emissions.
Faro5 is an electric boat that powers itself completely in less than two hours by connecting to its solar charging station.Faro5 was designed by Faroboats , a Portuguese shipyard that also thought of the Faro Solar Docking Station, a powerbankfloat that fully recharges its batteries simply by remaining moored in the sun for eight hours, and is therefore able to recharge any Faro5 or Open in less than two hours, maintaining full autonomy and independence from charging points or any electrical network.
If desired, we can send you the full article on this just short of Podium prize, but place 4 out of about 600 boats that were there at the time of the Cannes Yacht Festival 2022.
New in another ad you will see the newly announced Faro Open. This boat is based on the same hull and technology, but as the name suggests is a true open boat. Take a look at the ad, you will see the renderings and the scale model. The boat itself is still in production phase, as soon as we have pictures of the real boat, we will publish them. It is already possible to pre-subscribe, on the production model.
The all-electric Faro5 by Faroboats from Portugal with Dutch RimDrive as propulsion. The world is changing, maritime rules and regulations are changing, our customers are changing: environmental awareness is growing, so companies will transform and produce more environmentally friendly products.
And although the electric boat market is booming worldwide, until now, few luxury brands have picked up on this major shift.
FaroBoats has gone one step further by offering the world's first fully self-powered solution for pleasure boating. The combination with the docking station, makes this possible.
The Faro5 Runabout is clearly inspired by its ancestors from the 1920s. The streamlined lines of this 16-foot electric-powered boat, can only be described as stunning, the boat will silently cut through the water, only the sound of the water you will hear, you will hardly hear the engine.
Designed by Tomás Costa Lima, a top Portuguese marine designer, who likes to call it "streamline design" for its clean lines and understated elegance.
The 100% electric, power trim propulsion ensures absolute silence, impeccable performance and ample autonomy.
The boat has 5 comfortable seats, when not in use the bow seats can be covered with a deck-molded hatch.
Beautiful details around the cockpit, with the controls and status indicators in an LED display.
Built-in cooler, spacious storage areas, cup holders and the premium Fusion stereo system with powerful speakers complete the luxurious details of the Faro5, if supplemented with some more options.
We dare say a must have boat, a luxurious Roadster on the water
