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.

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.
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.
