Description

Torqeedo 8hp Cruise 4.0 RS (1232-00) and Cruise 4.0 RS (1233-00)

The new models of the Cruise 4.0 have been improved to meet the demanding challenges of everyday commercial use; making them ready to take on the harshest environmental conditions, for example with dinghies and sailboats up to 4 tons.

This makes the Cruise even more rugged in the event that it runs aground and even better protected against corrosion when used extensively in salt water.

The Cruise 4.0 is comparable to a 8 HP petrol outboard and can be easily mounted on your boat with a couple of tools, regardless of whether the remote or tiller version.

A power supply from at least two lithium batteries (Power 26-104) or with lead batteries (lead-gel or AGM) must be provided for operation.

Cruise 4.0 R – Benefits:

  • High-efficiency outboard with 4,000 W input power, equivalent to a 8 HP petrol outboard.
  • All Cruise models are suitable for inflatables and other small boats.
  • We recommend the Cruise 4.0 for dinghies and sailboats up to to 4 tons.
  • Remote steering connector option, comes with remote throttle.
  • Rugged aluminium pylon with reinforced fin – extra robust even when running aground
  • Shaft sealant rings mounted in protected area on the inside of the pylons
  • Highest-grade seawater-proof aluminium (AlMgSi1), hard-anodized for long service life, even in the harshest conditions
  • Lubricant-free polymer plain bearings protect against damage from fishing lines or debris and provide improved mechanical support for propeller shaft – wear-resistant and maintenance-free.
  • Comprehensive galvanic corrosion protection through careful matching of all materials and meticulous isolation of materials with different electrochemical properties.
  • Aluminium fin coated in polyurethane foam provides additional protection from impacts
  • Everything is waterproof to IP67.

Information on range and speed

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 onboard 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.

Torqeedo Electric Outboards

Back in 2003, ecological issues in Lake Starnberg, Germany, resulted in the introduction of restrictions which essentially banned the use of internal combustion engines. Doctors Christoph Ballin and Friedrich Böbel took up the challenge of creating a viable electric alternative to the outboard motor. The result was the Torqeedo travel range.

Since then, Torqeedo has moved from strength to strength, fully focused on developing a comprehensive range of electric outboards that provide a genuine alternative to petrol motors. As environmental concerns grow, their mission to deliver an alternative to fossil fuels for the outboard industry has become increasingly important. At Bill Higham, we’ve been supporting this mission for over a decade and stock a wide range of electric outboards.

Torqeedo electric outboards and inboards for sailors

Torqeedo now provides a range of electric propulsion solutions for sailors. The Travel range is a light, clean and quiet option for small dinghies and day-sailers, while the Deep Blue Saildrive range can power larger sailboats and catamarans. There’s also a range of pod drives, suitable for sailboats up to 10 tons and a powerful range of inboards. No matter the size of your boat, Torqeedo has an electric solution for you.

Torqeedo electric motors for motor boaters

Transform your motor boating into a green, quiet, powerful and efficient experience. Torqeedo’s Travel range provides a lightweight option for smaller boats while the Cruise range is suitable for those in need of a little more power. These outboards come in variations up to 20hp and are fed by super dense battery solutions. For larger vessels, the Deep Blue range is available in 40hp or 80hp options. These outboards, usually coupled with BMW iDrive battery solutions, come with a nine year warranty that promises 80% residual battery capacity with a nine year daily use cycle.

Torqeedo electric motors for kayaks

The Torqeedo Ultralight system weighs just 8.9kg, including the remote control and battery, making it perfect for a lightweight boat like a kayak. Whatever you use your kayak for, the Torqeedo Ultralight will completely transform the experience.
