Candela C-8 wins European Powerboat of the Year 2023

We are proud to announce that the Candela C-8 has been named the European Powerboat of the Year 2023.

This prestigious award ceremony, also known as “The Oscars of the Boat Industry”, was first launched in 2005 and has been held annually ever since. On January 21, 2023 – After two years of virtually held ceremonies- the presentation of the awards was finally back on site at Boot Düsseldorf.

This year a new category called “Electric” was introduced due to the increase in the manufacture of electric boats. The 5 candidates for this category (including the Candela C-8) are all among the best-selling powerboats in Europe.

The jury of the European Powerboat Award are expert test riders and editors-in-chief of the European powerboat media and regarding the “Electric” category, they judged the nominees specifically based on design, safety, and a good quality-price ratio. Another important factor for them while selecting the winner was the execution of innovative ideas. They also considered important quality features such as speed and handling.

Thanks to its unique industry-first hydrofoil technology features, which allow it to fly silently over the waves, the Candela C-8 was the winner of the “Electric” category by the jury.
