Product Description

The lightest, most powerful and most efficient electric outboards available, the Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 is the leading electric solution for pontoon boats, sailboats, small boats, commercial operations and users on lakes that limit the use of combustion motors. 

Due to the use of a highly efficient rare earth magnet torque motor, electronics and gear package, Torqeedo Cruise models deliver up to twice the range from the same battery supply compared to other popular electric motors with high-tech features such as GPS-based range calculation, up-to-the-minute accurate battery status and speed calculations and its ability to work with cool accessories like Torqeedo’s smartphone app, TorqTrac.

Solid aluminum lower unit provides improved protection from impact damage, corrosion, fishing lines and debris. The Cruise 4.0R model delivers the propulsive power of an 8hp and the thrust of a 9.9hp combustion outboard. Short shaft.

    Comments about Cruise 4.0R (Remotely Steered) Outboard, Long Shaft:

    I do not recommend that you ever buy. We used it one week and it hit a small stick and water entered its cheap housing. Because of this Torqeedo says they will not pay to have it fixed which would cost $2101.29. Entire investment is a pure WASTE! BTW when we first called they said they would fix it so we spent almost $200 mailing it in to get it fixed. More money down the drain!
