For dinghies and sailboats up to 4 tons
The new Cruise generation models are designed to meet the demanding challenges of everyday commercial use, making them ready to take on the harshest environmental conditions.
The long-distance specialist among the outboards continues to excel with unrivalled efficiency and outstanding range.
All models come equipped with all the high-tech and intelligent features of a true Torqeedo as standard.
Available with remote throttle (R) or tiller (T) control, in both 2.0 kW and 4.0 kW versions.
Despite its exceptional power, the Cruise remains a lightweight at only 16/17 kg.

Cruise 4.0 with 2 x Power 26-104
Alternative: 4 x 12 V / 200 Ah AGM Batteries
|Speed in knots (km/h)||Range in sm (km)||Running time in hours:|
|Slow||2.7 (5.0)||29 (54)||10:45|
|Full throttle||7.0 (13)||8 (15)||01:10|
Light boats can reach planing speeds up to 15 knots (28 km/h). The use of a twin motor (Twin Cruise 4.0) allows planing on some boats.
When travelling through water, displacement increases power required in proportion to the cube (third power) of the speed. This means that doubling water speed increases the power required eightfold.
Conversely, it also means that only a slight reduction in speed will increase the range attainable significantly. Simply reducing speed by even half a knot has a considerable effect on the remaining range.
Since mental arithmetic to the power of three is quite tricky, the on-board computer of the Cruise constantly calculates the remaining range for you. To do this, it combines the consumption data from the motor with the charge level of the batteries together with the speed over water obtained via GPS. This means you can read the remaining range in real time from the Cruise’s display. Using the TorqTrac App you can even read the remaining range from a map on your smartphone.
Note: Speed and Range are indicative only. Actual results may vary depending on hull design/configuration and on-water conditions.

* Torqeedo static thrust measurement is based on internationally accepted ISO standards. Static thrust figures for conventional trolling motors are typically measured differently, which results in higher values. To compare Torqeedo static thrust data with conventional trolling motors, add approximately 50% to the Torqeedo static thrust values.
Cruise 4.0 R FAQ
- Which Cruise for which boat?
- All Cruise models are suitable for inflatables and other small boats.For dinghies and sailboats up to 3 tonnes, we recommend the Cruise 2.0. The Cruise 4.0 easily propels up to 4 tonnes.
- Is the on-board computer compatible with my lead batteries?
- Yes, but with limitations.If the Cruise is operated with lead batteries the charge status indicator (and with it the remaining range indicator) is based on estimates derived from battery information entered during initial motor setup.
- What are the advantages of the Power 26-104 lithium battery for the Cruise?
- As a lithium battery, the Power 26-104 provides far greater performance with lower weight than conventional lead batteries. In other words, it does not weigh down your boat unnecessarily – and you benefit in terms of range and power. In addition, the integrated battery electronics of the Power 26-104 are designed to communicate with the on-board computer, meaning that the values provided by the battery such as remaining range and capacity are always exact.
- What does the on-board computer do?
- The on-board computer, which is integrated in the remote throttle with the Cruise R and in the tiller with the Cruise T, analyses information from the motor and combines it with GPS data. Motor consumption and GPS speed are always exact. When the Cruise is operated with the Power 26-104, the information on the battery and on range with remaining capacity is also exact because both products communicate with each other. That is very convenient.
- What requirements must my boat meet for twin motors – the Twin Cruise?
- A Twin Cruise outboard system consists of two Cruise models (2.0 R or 4.0 R) and the Twin Cruise extension set, which contains a dual throttle and tie bar.The tie bar is used to connect the two Cruise outboards to the same steering mechanism. The standard Twin Cruise mounting assumes a transom width of at least 76 cm.
- What is the warranty on the Cruise?
- The Cruise models have 2-year warranty from the date of purchase for non-commercial use.
