The first Torqeedo 1103C Units are starting to be shipped in Europe. It's a little longer before we receive ours but here is a video of what you can expect. They are direct drive and even more quiet than the 1003C model. After the break we have the press release direct from Torqeedo.
We go out of our way to make sure our customers are happy and get the most out of those precious moments on the water .... so we love hearing, and in this case seeing, happy customer stories. Check out this one sent to us by a family who purchased a Torqeedo Electric Outboard. They hooked it up to a floating dock and created a living room on the water. This might very well be one of the best, if not most creative uses, of a Torqeedo electric outboard ever.
We haven't had a chance to update our product list in a while but we wanted to officially let everyone know that we carry Torqeedo. Torqeedo makes the best electric boat motors in the world. Designed and built in Germany they have famously revolutionized the world of boating like Elon Musk and Tesla have revolutionized the automobile.
If you've ever been stuck when the wind dies, or you've had a calamity like a shroud breaking and a dismasting, then you know as small paddle isn't going to be much help, especially if the wind is blowing hard. While it is the law to carry a paddle, the sad fact is they are not very adequate to propel you back to shore. What all sailors should have is a back up motor.
If you enjoy training in heavy winds and you dont have a support boat then you can be in serious trouble if something should go wrong. Every sailor has at least one nightmare story in their archive and I am no different. All of our catamarans come with optional motor mounts and I highly recommend a backup motor. They will not interfere with your sailing enjoyment and provide a critical backup safety system. And when there is no wind you can still enjoy being on the water.
Torqeedo is an amazing product that has revolutionized boating. Gone are days of the smell, noise and hassle of gas fumes and pulling a cord to start a motor. We welcome this new era in aquatic and proud to be one of the few places to get Torqeedo in Canada. Stay tuned as we update product listings but in the meantime do not hesitate to contact us for your Torqeedo needs.
