C-8 Polestar
Design Edition

Polestar’s distinctive design takes to the sea.

Joined in the conviction that disruptive technology sets the stage for new iconic expressions, we went beyond Scandinavian minimalism to emphasise the sleek efficiency of the hull and create a cloud-like lightness, sharply contrasted by the boldness of the struts, proudly emphasised in gold.

The custom interior draws on the overall design language infused into the C-8 Polestar Edition by the Polestar Design Team.

A partnership in design,
technology, and vision.

Only through collaboration can we transition towards sustainable lifestyles. Polestar and Candela have taken an industry-first approach by sharing batteries, charging, and now design.

This partnership is based on the belief that knowledge exchange is the quickest route to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

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.
