Are you ready to be part of an exciting journey with the focus of making self-driving ships and boats a reality? We might be just a little bit biased, but we are working on one of the most interesting and important machine learning challenges out there today. Help us to revolutionise the world with autonomous and emission-free vessels. Join us now!

Candela Speed Boat AB is leading the transformation towards electric boating. By combining hydrofoils with carbon fiber composites and an all-electric drive train, our electric craft has the speed and range to compete with fossil fuel boats. Add to that an almost silent ride and unmatched comfort in high waves. All this has been achieved by combining the most advanced concepts of material science, hydrodynamics and control system theory.


As we scale our business to larger vessels for public transportation, we aim to make them fully autonomous and on-demand, making time tables and fixed routes things of the past. This will allow us to tap into the huge potential for fast and emission-free transporting the largest and busiest cities of the world.
