For the first time, the Best of Boats Award Jury awarded a prize in the new Best for Future category, which brings together innovative technologies and new concepts with the idea of sustainability. The award went to the foil-ending electric boat Candela Seven from Sweden.
Candela makes other boats look old: The Candela Seven is the first day cruiser that can fly. The development of the first electric foiling motorboat Candela was far from hassle free. But now it flies farther, smoother and faster than traditional e-boats.

HOW A FLYING BOAT CAME TO THE BOB
Candela CEO Gustav Hasselskog said: “I founded this company four and a half years ago from scratch. It is therefore really a great recognition to receive this award. It means a lot to me and the team. We have worked hard to get this far. That makes me and my team very proud.”
