Candela P-8 Voyage Boat Launch: Stockholm-based hydrofoil electric boat maker Candela has launched a new taxi boat based on an electric power train. The boat is designed in such a way that it flies above the surface of the water, using less power. The company has named it Candela P-8 Voyager.

According to media reports, this boat has been introduced as an alternative to other traditional water taxis and commercial passenger vehicles. This boat was launched in Venice. It has been designed by the company on the lines of the C8 electric speedboat. The P8 relies on the hydrofoil system, which is used by the brand on other electric boats. It has been designed by over 50 engineers who have experience in the drone, aerospace and software industries.
New experience will be found in water
According to the company, when the boat reaches a speed of 16 notes in the water, its system changes to flight control and it starts rising above the surface of the waves. The company’s commercial head Eric Eklund said that this boat is a new level of luxury life. After sitting on it, you will get a new experience of traveling in the sea, which was never found before.
use of sensors
The boat’s flight control uses sensors to measure the boat’s height from the waves, allowing for smooth travel even in adverse conditions. The system can handle 4 to 5 feet long chops and boat wakes. Explain that hydrofoil systems have almost zero wakes and hydrofoils are no bigger than Venice’s famous gondolas.
No need for much maintenance
The P8 Voyager has been designed in such a way that it does not require much maintenance. The Candela C-Pod motor has been specially developed for the company’s hydrofoiling watercraft. It consists of a pair of submerged motors that provide 50 kW of power and drive the counter-rotating propeller directly, without the need for any transmission.
