Torqeedo introduces 20 hp equivalent electric outboard

Building on its long history of producing the most efficient electric outboards in the world, Torqeedo has introduced a new flagship model for its low-voltage Cruise line, the Cruise 10.0. This 20 horsepower-equivalent, emission-free outboard can plane light boats at speeds up to 28 mph and moves displacement hulls from 3 to 10 tons at up to 9 mph.

"Torqeedo’s range of products encompasses systems from 1 hp all the way up to the 80 hp high-voltage Deep Blue. 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," said Steve Trkla, president and general manager of Torqeedo, Inc.

The Cruise 10.0’s electronically commutated, brushless DC motor and carefully optimized propeller provides 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 industry-leading 5 hp and 8 hp equivalent Cruise motors were redesigned in 2015 to include a rugged aluminum lower unit, full waterproofing to IP67 and corrosion protection. These features are carried forward into the Cruise 10.0, which also provides all of the high-tech user experiences the series is known for, including a full display showing battery status, GPS-calculated range and speed, and up-to-the-minute data regarding remaining runtime.

For 10 years, Torqeedo has led the way in marine lithium battery development. The Power 26-104 is the end result, and a perfect match for the Cruise series. Highly reliable and safe, these 25.9V power packs replace two 12V lead gel or AGM batteries, saving up to 70% of the space and weight. The Power 26-104 stores significantly more energy than other batteries and performs well under the high loads drawn by the Cruise 10.0.

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 in full color. A tiller-steered version is expected for 2017.

New for the 2015 Season – TRAC® AutoDeploy Electric Anchor Winch Series

Nashville, TN, January 20, 2015 – TRAC Outdoor Products introduces the TRAC® AutoDeploy Anchor Winch Series, Anger 25™ AutoDeploy and Deckboat 35™ AutoDeploy.

TRAC Outdoor Products’ newest Anchor Winch introductions have Touch and Release AutoDeploy. With the touch of a button (press and release), TRAC AutoDeploy automatically powers down the anchor smoothly and quietly, while you go about your boating activity. When the anchor reaches bottom, the winch stops then will transition from steady power-deploy and begin releasing rope just a few feet at a time, until there is enough rope out. The winch will then “lock”, holding the boat’s position. The amount of rope deployed can be adjusted by pushing UP or DOWN at any time. Or, press the AutoDeploy button again if the anchor drags due to changing conditions, such as wind or current. In addition, when the anchor winch stops letting rope out, the winch can be “locked” manually by pressing any switch button. Best of all, the user doesn’t have to hold the DOWN button until the anchor touches the bottom. This feature is great for fishing to allow a “controlled” drift; and great on pontoon and deck boats where there are distractions.

The AutoDeploy Anchor Winches come with a sealed membrane switch on the winch housing and a wireless remote control. The remote includes a bracket to hold the remote secure at the helm or wherever the user chooses. For the Angler 25, the anchor davit can be installed away from the winch or attached tight to it. For the Deckboat 35, the davit is integrated with the winch frame for the easiest installation of all our winches and requires just 10”x10” of deck space – least in industry.

Like all the TRAC Anchor Winches, the AutoDeploy Series comes standard with rugged all-steel gears, 100’ of 0.20” pre-wound double-braided anchor rope (700 lb. tensile strength), auto-resetting circuit breaker, 17’ of 14-gauge marine-grade battery wire, an anchor safety cable and all assembly hardware. It runs quietly and smoothly on 12v power with low amp draw.
