The world’s most advanced boat

Candela LOGO


By bringing together some of the world's brightest researchers and engineers, Candela has redefined what a boat is. The globe's only electric boat with speed & range as a fossil boat. And a behavior in rough sea second to none. Simply the future of boating.

The challenge

So far, no one has built an electric boat which 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. Meet the team behind Candela.

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. See full specification.
