The Travel 1003/1003C delivers over 1,000 watts of input power. In terms of propulsion is comparable with 3 HP petrol outboard. With the Travel 1003/1003C you can discover the world on water, completely waterproof to IP67.

Thanks to the on-board computer with its GPS-based calculation of the remaining range, you always have your own travel guide with you.

Compared with the Travel 503, the Travel 1003 has higher overall power and offers over 60% more battery capacity. The Travel 1003C model offers 3 times the battery capacity of the 503, enabling a greater range.

Both motors are suitable for inflatables and other small boats. The Travel 1003/1003C will also easily propel tenders, dinghies and sailboats up to 1.5 tonnes.

  • Can do everything that a 3 HP petrol outboard can, plus it’s environmentally friendlier, quieter, lighter and more convenient
  • On-board computer with GPS-based calculation of remaining range
  • Solar rechargeable – including during the voyage
  • Can be easily dismantled for transport and space-saving storage
  • A clean affair: no matter how or where you store your Travel, there’s no risk of leakage or petrol smells
  • Stepless forward/reverse drive
  • Manual tilting device with grounding protection
  • 4-step manual trim device
  • Completely waterproof (IP 67)
  • Tiller control
  • Travel 1003 : Integrated battery with 530 Wh Li-Ion / Travel 1003C :  Intergrated battery with 915 WH Li-lon

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.

As mental arithmetic to the power of three is quite tricky, the on-board computer of the Travel 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 Travel’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 Electric Outboards

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.
