P-8 Voyager

Meet the P-8 Voyager, the first zero impact craft for long-range exploration. Engineered to go where other electric boats can’t, without leaving a trace behind. Thanks to active hydrofoils, the P-8 Voyager combines silence, performance, and superior range into a design that brings a better experience for passengers, while leaving a minimal footprint.

Polestar
Powered

The most advanced electric boat battery pack ever comes from… a car. Candela C-8 Polestar Powered uses the same 69 kWh pack as the Polestar 2 electric performance fastback.

Polestar batteries also bring DC charging to the table, which means C-8 now combines the longest electric range with the fastest charging times. The result is the longest-range electric boat on the market, by a factor of two.

“The P-8 Voyager was designed to take you and your passengers to the places you love on the water, without leaving a trace”

C-POD

A completely new type of boat necessitates a revolutionary take on a century old concept; the electric motor.

Flight controller tech

Similar to a modern quadcopter drone, the C-8 intelligently senses it’s position relative to the surface of the water and adjusts accordingly.

The world’s first foiling electric boat

Hydrofoils are constantly and automatically adjusted by the onboard Flight controller, to maintain a superbly stable ride in all weather conditions.

Avionics

The Flight Controller uses different types of sensors to measure the boat’s position, speed, and acceleration in six degrees of freedom to create a precise and stable hydrofoiling experience.

40 nautical miles
40 min. charging time

Candela P-8 has a range of 40 nautical miles per charge traveling at 22 knots.
The achieved range is about 4 times longer than the best electric boats currently on the market.

Versatility
The retractable C-FOIL system makes P-8 Voyager a true no-compromise electric boat.

Always
Connected

Investing in a Candela means easy ownership – and 24/7 service if you need it. The Candela C-POD needs far less maintenance than gasoline outboards. Through remote diagnostics, our service technicians are there for you, anywhere on the planet.

We believe in a seamless machine-human interaction, and pride ourselves on delivering the best user experience of any boat. Over-the-air updates keep your P-8 Voyager up to date over the craft’s lifetime.

Sustainability

Reducing emissions by 99% locally.

P-8 Voyager is a long-range, all-electric craft that travels silently above the surface. No emissions. No sound pollution or disturbance of marine life.

We designed it to be the most efficient boat ever built. At 20 knots, the energy usage per nautical mile is just 1.5 kWh. To put that into perspective, that’s the energy content of 0,1 liter of gasoline.

Questions?
Here’s the top five.

What is the maximum passenger capacity?

Driver + 700kg.

Are the foils retractable? Can you drive in shallow water?

Yes, the foils are fully retractable by the push of a button. In shallow water mode, draft is 0,7 meters. Candela C-7 can be launched and stored on a custom float-on trailer.

What is the cost of driving a Candela C-7?

The C-7 is 95 percent cheaper to drive than a gas-powered boat! A full charge costs 5-7 €. A comparable fossil fuel bowrider would use fuel for 200 €.
