The ferment in the nautical world continues. The electrical Candela C-8 motorboat, successive step of the predecessor Candela 7, will be available starting from 2022. It is an 8.5 metre vessel produced in Sweden, equipped with a 100% state-of-the-art electric motor that can push the boat up to 30 nodes and can be used for 3,000 hours in all without maintenance. The electric motorboat can be recharged in two hours and has an autonomy of over 50 nautical miles. Concerning the design, the hull is made of carbon fibre and is equipped with foil, that is to say “wings” connected with the hull that allow the boat “to fly” on water. The low cost, result of a fully industrialized manufacturing system, has already found a more than positive success on the nautical market, to the extent that many Candela C-8 units have already been ordered few months after its release.
It seems that Candela C-8 offers the same drive sensation as a race car and the Flight Controller uses different types of sensors to measure the position, the speed and the acceleration of the boat in six degrees of freedom to create a precise and stable navigation experience.
Candela C-8 electric motorboat can be recharged in two hours and has an autonomy of over 50 nautical miles per charge, travelling at 24 nodes (cruise speed). The autonomy reached exceeds by about four times the electric boats currently on the market.
Candela C-8 hull is made of 100% carbon fibre, which significantly allows decreasing the weight compared to similar boats, besides being resistant and performing.
