Candela C-8 to Premiere at Sydney International Boat Show 2024

The Worlds First Electric Foiling Boat Is Coming Downunder!

We are pleased to announce that Carbon Yachts, the Australian distributor of Candela Boats, is bringing Australia’s first Candela C-8, the world’s premier electric hydrofoiling boat, to Sydney. This revolutionary vessel will arrive in Sydney this July and make its Australian premiere at the Sydney International Boat Show from August 1-4.

The Candela C-8 represents a significant advancement in sustainable boating, featuring advanced technology and exceptional performance. Equipped with the state-of-the-art Polestar battery, the C-8 offers a range of 57 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 22 knots and can reach a top speed of 30 knots. This performance is made possible by Candela’s patented hydrofoiling design, which reduces water friction for an efficient and smooth ride.

Mary Bickley, our Sales Manager at Carbon Yachts, shared, “We are excited to introduce the Candela C-8 to Australia. This vessel combines modern technology with a focus on sustainability. We believe that the C-8 will offer a new boating experience for Australian enthusiasts and attract a new market.”

We are also excited by news of the upcoming rollout of the Seavolt fast charger infrastructure across D’Albora marinas nationwide. This initiative will provide C-8 owners and other electric boat users with access to convenient and rapid charging solutions, supporting the adoption of eco-friendly marine technology.

At the Sydney International Boat Show, attendees will have the opportunity to see the Candela C-8 up close, with demonstrations highlighting its innovative design and performance. Additionally, Carbon Yachts will offer exclusive daily test flights of the Candela C-8 in Sydney Harbour, allowing guests to experience this sustainable boating option firsthand.

The Candela C-8 has received recognition as the European Boat of the Year 2023 and is the world’s best-selling electric leisure boat. Its design and performance have set a new benchmark in the marine industry, showing that electric boats can offer both luxury and sustainability.
