Electrifying marine transportation

We make hydrofoiling electric boats and vessels. Our ultimate purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel-free lakes and oceans. A traditional 7.5 m petrol boat consumes about 15 x more fuel than a family car, leaving a heavy footprint on our planet. Multiply that number with the number of ships and boats in seas worldwide and it’s easy to see that the concept of traditional combustion engine boats is simply not sustainable.

Our purpose is to re-think efficiency in marine transportation and to push the performance boundaries of electric boats and ships by unlocking the potential of hydrofoiling. The mission: make an electric boat with better performance than the fossil fuel competitors.

Better batteries

By collaborating with electric car maker Polestar, we source battery packs with the high energy density and safety standards found in the auto industry.

Using blockchain technology, Polestar aims to trace risk minerals from material sources to finished products. Transparency is a key driver for climate action, and the aim is to show the full lifetime carbon footprint from cradle to grave.

Candela C–8

The first modern watercraft

All other boats just became obsolete. Candela C-8 is the craft that breaks existing rules and sets the new ones.

Merging advanced aircraft technology with software and electronics, C-8 flies above the waves in absolute silence. Consuming just a fraction of the energy conventional boats use, C-8 is the first true long-range electric cruiser. But that’s just the start.

Candela C–POD

A silent revolution beneath

Candela C-POD is the most efficient and long-lasting boat motor ever made. Two ultra-compact yet strong permanent magnet motors under the water provide unrivaled range and efficiency. Enough thrust to make our boats fly at a speed of 30 knots, in absolute silence.

Electric direct-drive means no noise from gears, no oil changes and no maintenance. The patent-pending Candela C-POD will last a lifetime, without needing service.


Fossil-fuel freedom

Our ultimate purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel free lakes and oceans. We do this by creating a high-efficiency, all-electric propulsion system for both leisure boating and public transport.

Its C-8 boat model has already become the best-selling electric speed boat in Europe (and it actually outsells most internal combustion engine-powered boats in its premium category).

Candela’s hydrofoiling electric boats attract $24M investment in a bid for cleaner seas

At a stroke it makes every other boat feel strangely low-tech, as if Candela has finally managed to reinvent the wheel or, perhaps more aptly, discover flight.

Candela’s C-8 flying electric boat is already selling better than gas-powered boats

The result is a super stable boat, you can’t really get seasick on board.

So, OK, what’s the bottom line? Simply put, the Candela is a better boat. Just like a Tesla is a better car and an F150 Lightning is a better F150. This is the future, kids, and it’s awesome!
