Cruise motors have a built-in GPS, with on-board computer and display, showing information such as speed and input power, state of charge and remaining range, even with third-party batteries. They have a robust, wear-resistant design thanks to features such as a housing that is waterproof to IP67, pylons made from aluminium and a specially reinforced fin. They team up with the purpose-developed propellers and additional Torqeedo components to create a highly impressive package.
The flagship model in the Cruise series delivers 12 kW of peak output and a continuous output of 10 kW, which can propel efficient boats up to a maximum speed of 30 km/h.
Its power supply requires at least two (Power 48-5000) or four lithium batteries (Power 24-3500)
|Speed in knots (km/h)*||Range in sm (km)*||Running time in hours:|
|Slow||4.2 (7.8)||32,0 (60,0)||06:00|
|Full throttle||14,0 (26.5)||14,0 (26.5)||01:00|
* Depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.
For a displacement boat making way through the water, the required propulsive power increases in proportion to the cube of the speed. This means that if you want to double your speed, you need eight times as much power.
And vice-versa, a small reduction in speed is enough to increase the achievable range substantially.
The Torqeedo Cruise's on-board computer calculates the remaining range constantly, by linking the motor's consumption data with the charging level of the batteries, and the speed over the ground from the GPS. This allows you to read the remaining range in real time from the motor display or the smartphone app TorqTrac.
