The Candela C-7 is a foiling boat that employs computer-controlled hydrofoils and an electric outboard for a smooth, nearly silent ride. C-7s are propelled by Candela’s proprietary outboards. The C-7’s foil-control system leverages ultrasonic sensors, accelerometers, GPS receivers and gyroscopes to trim the foils 100 times per second. Owners can reportedly achieve 30-knot top speeds or a range of 50 nautical miles at a 22-knot cruising speed.
Whom It’s For: Candela C-7s are for boaters who want electric and foiling technologies in a traditional-looking vessel.
Picture This: A beautiful afternoon on the San Francisco Bay finds you cruising under the Golden Gate Bridge to Point Diablo. A gathering sea breeze opposes an ebb tide en route home, but your C-7’s flight-control system ensures a smooth ride.
