The 2023 Boating Season is Underway: it’s Time to go Electric

by xBJ1R439wX

It’s time to go electric: more than an ad, it’s a real motto. Summer is that season of the year where everyone breathes a completely different air. In this period, it’s possible to admire the beauties of the area, pushing towards new adventures, between land and water.

A family vacation, a weekend by the sea, can take on a completely different meaning. The 2023 boating season has officially kicked off and there is no better time than now to experience the benefits of cutting-edge electric motor technology.
To move in a more responsible (and above all sustainable) way, it’s enough to take look around and find specific solutions such as Torqeedo Travel series, suitable for experiencing every adventure in total serenity on the water.

The advantages of Torqeedo Travel 603 motors

No stress, no boat license. Here is the first advantage of Travel engines: it’s possible to explore remote places independently, without necessarily obtaining a specific license and, above all, without producing emissions or noise.

Their use is ideal in the case of sailboats, yachts, but also for sailors and families who want to enjoy afternoons in the open sea or trips on the lake.

Travel 603, for example, is the ideal engine for installation on a small boat or a rigid inflatable boat (RIB):

  • Uses cutting edge technology
  • Weighs just 15.5 kilograms (including battery)
  • Enables electric driving free from any type of pollution
  • Its components allow to check the autonomy of the boat from the on-board computer or from Torqeedo’s TorqTrac app
Out of the harbor in no time and with barely a sound: The Travel electric outboards are a perfect fit for smaller sailing boats.

More safety, less maintenance with Travel 1103 motors

Moving towards Travel 1103 the scenario changes, but the benefits for customers and the environment remain the same. One of the least pleasant aspects of engines (if it can be defined as such) is given by the cleaning and maintenance phase. Older petrol engines required extra care, especially to avoid spilling fuel into water. A problem that with electric motors can be completely avoided!

Travel 1103, for example, is a light engine, ready to be used. Just fix it to the boat and you can take advantage of a range of up to 74 kilometers if you are on board a small dinghy at a speed of 2 knots. If you want to focus on longer and faster journeys, you can combine it with spare batteries or solar charging.

True enthusiasts should certainly know the Travel electric motors, ideal travel companions for sailors looking for a reliable solution.

To find out more about these two engines, just take a look at the video below.

But in addition to the Travel series, it is also possible to look at even more varied solutions, brought together within the Cruise series, for boats weighing more than 1.5 tons. In this case, we are talking about engines that offer between 6 and 25 HP, with impressive performance, meticulous design, and sophisticated features.

Where do you want to go today? The Torqeedo Cruise series comes with 6 to 25 HP – and a unique user experience.

There are many activities that can be performed by nautical enthusiasts: from fishing trips to underwater tours, not to mention the beauty of exploratory tours on different boat models. Every journey involves different needs and an engine capable of ensuring a precise series of characteristics.

This is why the summer season is the ideal time to switch to electric. A more efficient choice from an energetic and economic point of view, without giving up exploratory adventures towards breathtaking landscapes and unrevealed coasts.
