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: 24 5/8"

Don't waste your money

    • Motor Has Design Flaw

    Best Uses

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

      Purchased this motor for pontoon boat. Design flae is in the seal on lower unit. Seal is damaged very easy and allows water intrusion and shorts all electrical in motor.
      Factory rep said they recognized the problem and will change in the future. Sorry for your problem.

          Misleading Product

          By Electric Disappointed

          from Nassau, The Bahamas

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

          I decided to purchase product because the bonus of not carrying gas on the dinghy was very appealing. Serious deliberation on spending the money for an electric engine. Took the cruiser to Florida to pick up product and loaded it up. Realized that the engine itself comes without battery. Went to local dealer and found out the battery is an additional $7,000.00.
          Was never advertised that the cost of engine only gets you 1/3 the way there.
