Will The C-8 Center Console By Candela Lead The Way Into Electronic Fishing Boats?

As a serious fisherman who has been fishing in open waters for nearly 35 years, I have to admit that the features of the hydrofoils boat seem pretty impressive but will it become the way of the future, I'm not so sure until the boats range increases.

Going electric on the water is a great way to reduce the negative impact on the environment, but my main concern is the range. I want to be able to explore a ways offshore and onto the Otherside without worrying about running out of power in the middle of the voyage.

However, I do appreciate the efforts made to enhance the experience and reduce the impact. The hydrofoils boat promises to be a level up in every way, with a fully submerged electric propulsion system that makes no noise. I like the idea of being able to connect with the surrounding as I fly silently over water, with only the sound of birds and the breeze (or the music of my choice) to accompany me.

The open CC design is also a nice touch, providing 360° access to water without leaving a wake to disturb other boaters or shorelines. And with plenty of options and extras, the CC seems like a flying some futuristic super duty King Ranch Ford 250 that can satisfy any exploration hunger.

Of course, I still have some reservations about the range, but overall, I think the hydrofoils boat is a step in the right direction. If the range can be improved, it could be a game-changer for serious fishermen like myself who care about the environment and want to enjoy the experience of exploring our beautiful lakes and oceans.
