Torqeedo ADVANCED ELECTRIC OUTBOARD IDEAL FOR DAYSAILERS To make day trips more enjoyable, daysailers need a powerful and efficient motor to assist in docking, navigating through marinas and as back-up propulsion. Torqeedo delivers that and more in the technologically advanced Travel 503 and 1003 electric outboards.

More powerful and stronger than previous models, the Travel 503 and 1003 can move vessels up to 3,000 lbs. Fully fresh and saltwater-proof, they can be rigged for remote throttle, enabling easy rudder steering. They also feature a removable tiller arm.

Located inside the tiller is a display, which shows precise information on battery charge status, remaining range at current speed, speed over ground and power consumption. An audible alarm warns when the lithium-manganese battery charge status reaches 30%.

Increasing the Travel's eco-friendliness, a foldable, 3' solar panel utilizing CIGS technology is available. The absorbed sun energy is stored in the weatherproof and UV-resistant modules, so they still can deliver electricity when the sky is cloudy.

Torqeedo's Travel 503 is equivalent to a 1.5 hp gas outboard and costs $1,599, while the Travel 1003 is comparable to 3 hp and is priced at $1,899.
