Please note, boat details can change without notice!
Instead of pushing through waves, C-8 glides in silence over the water's surface. We made a motor, the Candela C-Pod, perfected for hydrofoiling, deviating from the trend of larger engines in leisure boating. By combining innovation in electric propulsion with hydrofoiling, the C-8 leaves no wake behind. Hydrofoils are constantly and automatically adjusted by the onboard Flight controller, to maintain a superbly stable ride in all weather conditions. 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 C-8 is a game changer in the electrification of boats. C-8 combines efficiency, unbeatable comfort, and a minimal environmental impact.
Candela C-8 Polestar Powered uses the same 69 kWh pack as the Polestar 2 electric performance fastback. Polestar batteries also bring DC charging to the table, which means C-8 now combines the longest electric range with the fastest charging times. The result is the longest-range electric boat on the market, by a factor of two.
Similar to a modern quadcopter drone, the C-8 intelligently senses its position relative to the surface of the water and adjusts accordingly.
100% Carbon fiber, built in Sweden. With experience from fighter jet technology and airplane design, we design our hulls to be extremely light, while still rigid and strong.
