The ultimate outboard for boaters on green lakes and 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 4.0 model delivers the thrust of a 10hp gas outboard. It can move sailing boats up to 6 tons at speeds up to 6 knots. A well-stocked 24' pontoon boat with 7 people aboard will be moved at 6mph.
