A boat from FAP boatyard is not a simple wooden boat, but the result given by a combination of many variables such as passion, experience, and attention to detail. We carefully choose the mahogany and teak wood planks from which we will build each boat, and then we begin to fold and shape them, starting with the rigging and the boat’s frames and then moving on to the sides. Each piece has its own purpose and involves careful work on joints, optimisation of materials and spaces.
Our production boasts models of boats typical of the Venetian lagoon such as bonnets, lancins, fishing boats, cabin cruisers, open boats but also tenders for large boats and all with provision for outboard motors.
For convenience, we have categorised them according to the hull’s size: under 4 metres in length, 5 to 6 metres in length and over 6 metres in length.
With regard to the internal subdivision of spaces, the possibilities are endless and these are decided and arranged according to the needs of the customer and the use of the boat itself.
On the sides, each boat has storage pockets, while in the bow and stern there are large lockers for storing nautical equipment and what is needed for outings in the lagoon. Also in the bilge area there is the possibility of storing items such as life jackets, wings, ropes and more.
The cushions are made of water-repellent leather-like and are usually placed on the stern bench and on the bow benches to make the trip and stay on the boat comfortable and convenient. Cushions can also be customised in various colours.
The motor is outboard bar-driven or steering wheel-mounted on a wooden half-deck.
