Product Description

The ultimate outboard for boaters on lakes that have restricted the use of gasoline outboards, or for sailors who prefer quiet electric propulsion: Torqeedo Cruise models are in a class of their own when it comes to power and efficiency. 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.

The Cruise 4.0R model delivers the thrust of a 10hp gas outboard. It can move sailboats up to six tons at speeds up to six knots. A well-stocked 24' pontoon boat with seven people aboard will be moved at 6mph.

  • Power: Input power 4,000W @ 48V, output power 2,240W (comparable to 9.9hp gas outboard)
  • Voltage: 48V
  • Battery: External (remote battery bank sold separately)
  • Steering: Remotely-Steered. Designed for connection to SeaStar Solutions light-duty steering system (sold separately)
  • Shaft Length: 29 11/16"
  • Weight: 40.8lb.
  • Gearing: F-R continuously variable
  • Warranty: Two years limited

    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!
