We are thrilled to announce the official opening of our Candela US office!

Our first test drive center in the US can be found at 1709 Brideway, Suite 105B, Sausalito, CA 94965. This location, the first in the US, joins centers in Stockholm, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Italy, to expand Candela’s presence in the US market.

With over 100 orders for the new Candela C-8 daycruiser, we are now leading electric boat sales in Europe thanks to the unique combination of speed, silence, and long, all-electric range. However, the majority of new customers are from the US, making the American powerboat market a key target for Candela.

“We’re not just aiming at making the best electric boat. We’re making a vastly better boat than today’s conventional powerboats, hands down – combustion engine or electric. Thanks to our hydrofoil technology and our direct-drive C-POD motor, there’s no slamming, no noise, no fumes and very little maintenance. It basically takes away all the bad things with powerboats. Once you’ve tried a Candela, it’s very hard to go back to conventional boating,” says Tanguy de Lamotte, CEO of Candela US.

Starting on April 1st, Candela will offer test rides out of their Candela San Francisco location in Sausalito. For media test drives, reach out to
