How it's built

Made in Sweden 🇸🇪

With experience from fighter jet and airplane design, we have made the Candela Seven extremely light, while still highly impact resistant. The hull, deck & deck parts are carefully crafted from 100% carbon fiber. 

We make a large percentage of the components in our own factory in the Stockholm archipelago where we also assemble and perform final testing.

Trailering or going
in shallow water?

No problem

FORGET SLAMMING INTO WAVES

By hydrofoiling, the Candela Seven skips waves that other boats inevitably will slam into.

reduce local emissions by 99%

Hydrofoils together with electric propulsion is a dream come true. Enjoy 99% reduced local emissions when charging with an average EU electricity mix.

FLY SILENTLY ABOVE THE SURFACE

By using a clean and efficient electric motor and flying above the surface, the Candela Seven runs significantly quieter than comparable boats. Save your voice and talk easily with your passengers at high speeds.

95% cheaper to run

100% electric, the Candela Seven can be recharged at your dock overnight and consumes less than 10 eurocents per nautical mile in electricity.

Frequently Asked Questions

We still have a few production slots available for deliveries for the summer of 2020. Scroll down and go to the order page to reserve one.

As of March 2019, we have delivered 10 boats to customers in Sweden, Finland, Austria, the US and the British Virgin Islands.

If you are used to it, landing unexpectedly is quite undramatic. This can happen if you foil at the lowest speed limit, or if you attempt to cross a wake or seastate that is beyond the capabilities of the boat, which is approximately 1 meter of wave height.

Water is fairly forgiving when landing unexpectedly at the speed at which the Candela Seven can operate, although you might get a bit wet.

Absolutely! You can tow waterskiers, wakeboarders and other water toys effortlessly and without consuming a single drop of fossil fuel. See our YouTube channel for a wakeboarding video. More video of waterskiing is coming soon.
