Candela to launch second generation hydrofoil boat
Swedish tech firm Candela is to launch its second-generation hydrofoil boat – the Candela C-8, a larger and more comfortable version of its C-7 model designed to bring electric boats to a wider market. “With the C-7, we demonstrated that our hydrofoil technology not only allows for long range on electricity, but also provides a better experience than conventional boats. In a hydrofoil boat, you get a smoother, nicer ride,” says Gustav Hasselskog, Candela’s founder and CEO. “However, the C-7 was more like a hand-built sports car; never intended for volume production.
