So far, no one has built an electric boat that can replace fossil boats. Even the most recent attempts have failed. They either get speed or range. Not both. The reason is simple. Planing boats need enormous amounts of energy. And one kilo of gasoline contains 15 times more energy than one kilo of the best battery. So it is a steep challenge.
Rethink it all
Boatbuilders typically employ boatbuilders. But to crack the challenge - designing the world's first electric boat with both speed and range - we had to do it differently. We joined together some of the world’s brightest minds within their fields: hydrofoil technology, carbon composites, transmission design, power electronics, dynamic modeling, self-learning, control theory and a lot of software development. Now we have, with a wide margin, the world's most advanced boat. The challenge proved to be a purely intellectual one.
Nothing like it
- Unparalleled sea handling: Fly above instead of bumping around on the waves and wakes
- Like a fighter jet: Foil positions are changed 100 times per second. The boat is far more than a boat.
- Silent: Enjoy a conversation or simply the sounds of nature
An integrated experience
At Candela we build our own PCBAs and write the code from scratch. The result is a fully integrated experience. All information & interaction is managed on a 12-inch multi-touch screen. Forget the über-complicated chartplotters. Pan and zoom the way you are used to. When away from the boat, the dedicated App informs you in real time about charging status, position and every data point of your last ride.
