Silent Power for Tenders, Workboats, and Green Lakes

Published: Thursday, June 2, 2016

Fast, fun and 100% electric, the Cruise 10.0 R outboard motor delivers commanding performance with the simplicity of a low-voltage system. Newly designed and engineered, it delivers the equivalent to a 20 hp combustion engine with 12 kW peak and 10 kW continuous input power.

The new flagship of Torqeedo's full line of Cruise motors reaches top speeds up to 21 mph. It can travel up to 19 miles at 19 mph and has a 45-mile range at lower speed.

Boasting a striking, modern design, the Cruise 10.0 R is whisper-quiet and emission-free. It operates at just 48 volts, which makes it easy and uncomplicated to handle and maintain. It's the ideal companion for RIB and luxury tenders, and boats on green lakes. Commercial operators running workboats, water taxis, and tour vessels will profit from the motor's low operating and maintenance costs.

At first glance, it's obvious that the Cruise 10.0 is not a  conventional outboard. The motor itself is discreetly housed underwater in a robust aluminum pylon, cooled naturally by the surrounding water. The shaft is hydrodynamically optimized and the head reflects the slim, low-profile and elegant frame design of the series.
This is where the similarities with the smaller Cruise models end. The Cruise 10.0 R is edgier and more substantial than its predecessors. With its performance, ruggedness and unique look, it fills the gap between the smaller outboards and Torqeedo's Deep Blue high-voltage motors.

Integrated GPS and an onboard computer deliver precise information about speed, power consumption and remaining range on the included remote throttle display. It works seamlessly with Torqeedo's TorqTrac app to display all motor information right on a Bluetooth-equipped smartphone.

The introductory video for the new Cruise 10.0 R went viral with more than 300,000 views in its first week on Torqeedo's Facebook page. It can be viewed at
