New Electric Outboard Gives Pontoon Market A Boost

Torqeedo, the world’s leader in electric outboards for commercial and recreational boaters is taking the mid-size outboard market by storm with its new Cruise 10.0.

Cruise 10
by Torqeedo

This groundbreaking new motor, the equivalent of a 20-horsepower motor is proving to be a popular option for smaller boats, able to achieve speeds of 28-mph. It also gives larger displacement hulls between three and 10 tons performance up to 9-mph. The Cruise 10.0 specifically targets the mid-size pontoon market — particularly in areas where the use of combustion propulsion is prohibited.

“Torqeedo’s range of products encompasses systems from 1-hp all the way up to the 80-hp high-voltage Deep Blue,” says Steve Trkla, Torqeedo’s president. But the Cruise 10.0 provides a clean, green and quiet alternative for commercial and recreational users who prefer the simplicity and easy handling of a low-voltage system, but require more speed, thrust, and power than previously available.”

The Cruise 10.0 follows in the footsteps of the company’s industry-leading and award-winning 5- and 8-hp equivalent Cruise motors that were redesigned in 2015. Each includes a rugged aluminum lower unit, full waterproofing to IP67 and corrosion protection. All three also include all of the high-tech features series is known for, like a full display showing battery status, GPS-calculated range and speed, and up-to-the-minute data regarding remaining runtime. The Cruise 10.0 brushless DC motor and carefully optimized propeller provide up to 12 kW at peak input and 10 kW continuous power. The 48V outboard delivers impressive performance while maintaining the simple handling and installation of a low-voltage system. It comes standard with an integrated electric tilt, easily mounts to the vessel’s remote steering and is available in three shaft lengths.

The Cruise 10.0 is compatible with Torqeedo’s smartphone app, TorqTrac, allowing users to view all motor, GPS and mapping data in real time and full color. A tiller-steered version is expected for 2017.
