Efficient electric outboard motors are a reality. We rate and review several new Torqeedo electric engines.

Founded in 2005, electric outboard motor brand Torqeedo has grown to 32 electric boat engine models, from 1 to 80hp, sold globally.

Born of the need for zero environmental impact travel on Lake Starnberg, Germany, Torqeedo electric outboard founders Dr Christoph Ballin and Dr Friedrich Böbe tried to find a product to answer their needs but when one failed to present itself, they took on the job of making it themselves.

Fast forward to the past few years and Torqeedo, although represented locally, wasn’t having the impact or sales it deserved in Australia. In 2016m however, local success story Power Equipment took on distribution. Power Equipment has a proven record of sales and support for major marine brands like, Yanmar marine diesel engines, and JCB, both in business-to-business and direct to consumers. Their marriage has enjoyed immediate success with local sales and – more important to us – access to Torqeedo electric outboards top review and evaluate.

Thanks to Power Equipment, we got to review ready-to-go electric outboard packages that reflect not only the most popular ranges but also the flexibility of the technology.
