REDUCING LOCAL EMISSIONS BY 99%
C-8 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 0,8 kWh. To put that into perspective, that’s the energy content of 0,1 liter of gasoline.
The Candela C-POD is the most efficient and longest-lasting boat motor ever built.

Hydrofoils are the key to a long all-electric range at sea.
The hydrofoils are constantly and automatically adjusted by the onboard Flight controller, to maintain a superbly stable ride in all weather conditions.
Simply a better experience
C-8 comes as an open day cruiser or a sheltered hardtop with a retractable sunroof.
Customize your C-8 to fit your needs with additional amenities, such as a beverage cooler, freshwater shower, searchlights, radar, and more.
The cabin in C-8 sleeps two adults and two children. The optional Premium Sound System with subwoofer and six speakers allows for a unique concert experience onboard the most silent electric craft ever made.
The retractable C-FOIL system makes C-8 a true no-compromise electric boat. In shallow mode, the foils and Candela C-POD are protected by the hull. In extreme weather conditions that prevent foiling, C-8 can be driven as a conventional boat, albeit with reduced range.
The helm position of C-8 is simple and clean, with a 15,4-inch touchscreen running Candela’s intuitive UI.
Control everything – from the cooler to navigation – from the screen or the Candela app.
We believe in seamless machine-human interaction, and pride ourselves on delivering the best user experience of any boat. Over-the-air updates keep your C-8 up to date over the craft’s lifetime.
With experience from fighter jet technology and airplane design, we design our hulls to be extremely light, while still rigid and strong. The C-8 hull is vacuum infused from 100% carbon fiber, which allows the weight to be significantly less than similar boats.
Integrated navigation in 15,4″ screen
App with position, state of charge, route statistics and more
The hybrid hull is shaped for frictionless planing in addition to low air resistance when foiling.
