The singular streamlined design of the Faro5, by Tomás Costa Lima, combined with its functionality and sustainability, makes this boat the ideal choice for those who want to sail in style, autonomously, and 100% green.
It’s hard to think about elegance and glamour without being transported to the 1920’s. It’s no wonder its imagery gets dipped upon whenever moviemakers want to convey wealth, power and elegance, whether it’s a British MI6 agent pursuing his nemesis along Venetian canals, an American tycoon gazing at his private dock in Long Island, or a French femme fatale being driven from La Croisette to her awaiting lover aboard a super-yacht in the bay.
The sheer elegance of those wooden runabouts always seems to find its way into the big screen, and it’s not by chance. They’re beautiful in their understatement, sleek but powerful, ever modern in a timeless, classy way.
Tomás Costa Lima’s challenge was to capture that timeless quality of a perfect wood finish in an ultra-modern, streamline design that could be built sustainably. He pulled it off in style.
Industrial fibreglass and epoxy resins basically do the same job and are certainly less costly. But our environment cannot afford cutting corners, the time for that is gone. That is why we carefully selected our fibreglass and resins among the most environment-friendly. They cost more, but they are well with it. That’s also why we are constantly researching new materials and solutions to go one step further into sustainability; new organic materials and resins, new wind generation solutions and new mobility combinations are now well under our horizon.
