Candela was founded in 2014 by Gustav Hasselskog. Determined to find ways to make electric boats with both range and speed, he gathered a task force consisting of some of the world’s leading experts within dynamic modelling, hardware design, hydrodynamics, control theory, machine learning, image & signal processing, structural engineering and electrical machines. The mission: to make an electric boat with better performance than the fossil fuel competitors. At the end of 2016, a full-scale prototype was launched, reaching the target of more than 50 nautical miles per charge at a speed of 22 knots. Serial production of the world’s first electric hydrofoil boat started in 2019. In 2020, Candela C-7 became the best-selling electric boat in Europe. There’s finally is a superior electric alternative to gas-guzzling fossil fuel boats. We’ve made the first no-compromise electric boat: fast, with long-range, and fun to drive. But also 95% cheaper to operate, totally silent, and doesn’t create any wake. Our hydrofoil technology enables people to explore the planet’s beautiful waterways without harming and polluting these fragile ecosystems. And on a greater scale, we believe our electric hydrofoil technology will play a big part in cutting emissions from shipping. This is a key to reach the UN sustainability goals of reaching zero net emissions by 2050. Candela’s purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel free oceans and lakes. Our innovative P-30 is the world’s first high-speed and long-range electric shuttle ship. Cruising at 20+ knots on computer-controlled hydrofoils, it consumes 80% less energy than conventional ships. Opening up our waterways for fast, zero-emission transport will revolutionize urban commuting. The 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. In 2019, we introduced the Candela C-7 to prove that the future of boats depends on electric propulsion and actively stabilized hydrofoiling. Winning numerous awards, gaining great customer feedback, and making an international sales record, the C-7 surpassed our expectations. Now available only in limited numbers pre-owned, the C-7 is an icon among electric boats, that has inspired customers and competitors alike, worldwide. In order to make a truly compelling electric craft, we had to rethink boats. Instead of punching its way through the waves, C-8 flies silently above the surface. Instead of fitting a bigger engine, we went for dramatically improved efficiency by developing a pod motor optimized for hydrofoils. Instead of creating huge swells, we made a craft that leaves no wake behind. To this, we added the best user interface ever seen in a boat, over-the-air upgrades, and all the amenities and comfort you would expect from the world’s best leisure boat. 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.
