Torqeedo, market leader in the fast growing electric outboard motor industry, will debut its innovative new electric motor at this year’s Seawork International exhibition in Southampton in June. In Ireland, the engine is available through Union Chandlery.
The new generation, the Cruise 10.0R, is equivalent to a 20HP combustion engine. It boasts 12kW peak power, 10kW continuous power and a voltage level of 48V to deliver impressive, emission-free performance at speeds of up to 17.2knots (31.9km/h).
The Cruise 10.0R weighs 47.2kg in its smallest variation and features a powered tilt function, alongside a maximum RPM standing at 1,400RPM, and 315lbs of static thrust. Available in three shaft lengths ranging from 38.5cm to 63.9cm, the Cruise 10.0R is suitable for a variety of boats.
With its very robust design, protected from corrosion, salt-water capable and completely waterproof, this new addition is suited for rugged environments and extreme conditions. It can provide the power and thrust for planing boats and displacement hulls up to the weight of 10 tonnes.
