Electric Boat Breaks Records, Sailing 483 Miles in 24 Hours with Charging Stops

In an impressive achievement for electric boat technology, a Candela C-8 Polestar Powered boat sailed a remarkable 420 nautical miles (483 miles) within 24 hours, including charging stops, setting a new record for long-distance electric boat travel. This feat, which is equivalent to a journey from San Francisco to San Diego or from Tampa, Florida to New Orleans, demonstrates the viability of fast, long-distance electric water transport today.

The record-breaking event, conducted in collaboration with battery manufacturer Northvolt and charging provider Plug in Stockholm, Sweden, showcased the potential of future charging networks for boats. During the 24-hour challenge, the Candela C-8 was recharged seventeen times by Northvolt’s mobile energy storage Voltpack connected to a DC charger, with each charge taking only 18 minutes, and the boat achieved an average charging speed of approximately 118 kW. This accomplishment not only emphasizes the feasibility of electric marine transport over extended distances but also highlights the cost-effectiveness of electric boats compared to their gasoline counterparts, with the C-8 consuming just $117 worth of electricity, a fraction of the cost of traditional gasoline-powered boats.
