Candela C-8 Hydrofoil Speedboat
Candela is following up its C-7 with a bigger, faster version. The C-8 Hydrofoil Speedboat emphasizes speed with an innovative hydrofoil system that lifts the vessel above the surface to reduce drag. Pair it with a carbon-fiber hull designed for efficiency, and the electric vessel will reach a top speed of 30 knots. It's powered by a 44-kWh battery that gives the watercraft a range of 50 nautical miles, currently three times further than any other electric boat. The spacious cockpit can comfortably hold 8 passengers and includes a sunbed, three seats, and a cooler, while the interior features a front cabin with sleeping for four and a bathroom. The whole boat is controlled by a 15.4-inch touchscreen or on your phone through the Candela app, and also has an autopilot system. Available in a hardtop model, the C-8 is now taking reservations with production slated for 2022.
