• From Scaleup to International Recognition
• What sets the Edorado 8S Apart
• Not just a flying boat
• Here to change the game

Edorado, the pioneering scaleup in the world of eco-conscious marine technology, is on the cusp of making history with its flagship product, the Edorado 8S luxury electric hydrofoil powerboat. The electric sensation has been nominated for the highly anticipated European Powerboat of the Year 2024 Award in the Electric category, marking a significant milestone for the young company.

Edorado’s journey from scaleup international recognition is a testament to its unwavering dedication to sustainable innovation in the maritime industry. The Edorado 8S has been turning heads with its cutting-edge design and eco-friendly performance, which has made it a strong contender in the Electric category.

This nomination not only demonstrates industry acknowledgement but also showcases the progress made by Edorado in a relatively short period. As a scaleup, Edorado has shown the world that it is possible to push the boundaries of luxury boating while remaining eco-conscious.


Electric Performance

The electric performance of the 8S sets it apart from other electric boats, excelling both in range and speed. With an impressive top speed of up to 74 km/h, it reaches one of the highest speeds achievable by electric boats, making it a thrilling choice for enthusiasts.

Build Quality

The Edorado 8S features an unparalleled level of build quality, with not a single screw, bolt, or cable visible, ensuring a sleek and elegant appearance.
Beyond what meets the eye, the attention to detail ensures that everything on the inside is impeccably organized, neatly tucked away, and thoughtfully designed. There are no rough edges, no loose cables, and no loose parts, making the 8S a masterpiece of craftsmanship and a testament to the pursuit of perfection.


Edorado’s meticulous attention to detail not only enhances aesthetics but also significantly contributes to safety, making it an ideal choice for families, including those with children, by eliminating potential hazards and providing a secure and enjoyable boating experience.

Patented Safety System

The Edorado 8S stands as one of the safest electric hydrofoil powerboats in existence, thanks to its innovative patented safety system. Unlike traditional vertical foil retraction mechanisms, the Edorado 8S features a pioneering design where the front foil pivots to the back upon impact, ensuring the smoothest landing possible in case of collision with an object. This groundbreaking system not only enhances safety but also guarantees peace of mind for passengers, making the Edorado 8S a top choice for those prioritizing security on the water.

Superior Hydrofoil Configuration

The 8S features a superior hydrofoil configuration known as the Canard configuration, setting it apart from conventional designs. This innovative approach places the stabilizing foil at the front of the boat, providing exceptional stability and control even at high speeds. This configuration not only enhances the 8S’s performance but also offers a smoother and more responsive ride, making it a game-changer in the world of electric hydrofoil powerboats.


The Edorado 8S is far more than just a flying boat; it symbolizes Edorado’s commitment to making fast boating green and sustainable. Their mission is to leave a lasting legacy of a cleaner world for generations to come. The 8S is the embodiment of this vision, showcasing that speed and environmental responsibility can harmoniously coexist, setting the course for a better, more sustainable future.


The European Powerboat of the Year Awards is an influential recognition within the maritime industry, and Edorado’s nomination is a clear indicator of the company’s rise in the sector.
The reason to nominate the Edorado 8S goes beyond its remarkable features; it’s about Edorado’s mission to change the game. The 8S represents their commitment to revolutionizing the world of fast boating, making it green and sustainable for the betterment of future generations. While its electric performance, impeccable build quality, enhanced safety, patented safety system, and superior hydrofoil configuration set it apart from the rest, the 8S is, above all, a symbol of their unwavering dedication to harmonizing speed and environmental responsibility, paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable future on the water.

Godert van Hardenbroek, Founder & CEO at Edorado, expressed his excitement about this milestone, saying, “Being nominated for the European Powerboat of the Year 2024 Award is an honor for our company. It showcases our dedication to sustainability and innovation. We believe this recognition will further propel us toward our goal of becoming a leading name in eco-conscious fast boating.”
