Torqeedo Electric Outboards

torqeedo-cruise-t-3-4256x2832crop

Torqeedo is a German company dedicated to electric marine propulsion. Their founder’s inspiration was simple: combustion (ie petrol) engines had recently been banned on his local waterways, and the electric motors available at the time were all aimed at the fishing trolling market (ie. slow).

Torqeedo¬†have been very successful in this market, a clear industry leader for the last 10 years, with a range of electric motors, inboard and outboard, from 400W to 66kW. However they do now have an ambitious competitor (ePropulsion), and in the important 1kW outboard motor market we think it’s going to be a case of “six of one, half a dozen of the other”

The motors of most interest to us in the portable boat market are the:

torqeedo-travel-503-l-1200x1200sm

Travel 1003 (and 503) integrated battery portable outboards. These offer power outputs of 0.5 and 1kW, or roughly 1 to 2 hp, but with vastly more torque than their petrol equivalents. That means they are very good at pushing surprisingly heavy loads up to about 6 knots, but no faster (they won’t get anything on the plane).
Torqeedo Travel 1003S & 1003L

If you are considering a Torqeedo 1003 then it has to be worth a couple of minutes reading about the ePropulsion Spirit. It has important similarities, and a couple of significant differences…


torqeedo-403-ultralight-kayak-motor

Ultralight 403 Dedicated Kayak Motor. This 400W motor only weighs 7kg including the battery, and is designed specifically to power kayaks. The versatile mounting system means it can be fitted to almost all “hardshell” kayaks, and we’ve also developed a system that makes it possible to fit on some types of inflatable kayak.

torqeedo-cruise-t-featim

Cruise Series external battery portable outboards. These offer power outputs of 2 to 8kW (4 to 15hp), again with vastly superior torque, and torque characteristics, compared to petrol motors. On the right boat, with the right propeller, the Cruise motors can achieve planing speeds (in virtual silence, which is a wonderful experience).
