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 to radically push the performance boundaries of electric boats and ships The mission: to make an electric boat with better performance than the fossil fuel competitors.
Our stabilized hydrofoiling technology allows for the electrification of fast-moving leisure boats and professional vessels.
A solution for
- RANGE (NM)
- TOP SPEED (kn)
- CAPACITY (PEOPLE)(ppl)
By collaborating with electric car maker Polestar, we source battery packs with the high energy density and safety standards found in the auto industry.
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.
My first ride in C-8 gave me a glimpse at the future of luxury water travel.
Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, It’s a Flying Ferry
It feels like we’re flying
Electric-Boat Maker Candela Gets Cash Infusion to Scale Up Production
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.
Teslas making waves: A new generation of electric motorboats takes to the water
The world’s first AI-powered, all-electric hydrofoil boat that automatically stabilises itself for a smoother ride
I tested a flying electric boat and it was even cooler than it sounds
Swedish Tech Company Breaks Sales Records With Disruptive New Long-Range Hydrofoiling Electric Speedboat
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!
