Electric outboard manufacturer Torqeedo and the Hobie Cat Company have teamed up to develop new products combining Torqeedo’s Ultralight 402 kayak motor and Hobie’s kayak designs.

The first product is set for launch in September.

“We’re looking forward to working with Hobie in the future and the products we’ll develop together,” Torqeedo co-founder and managing partner Christoph Ballin said in a statement. “It’s only natural for our companies to work together, offering kayakers the best equipment on the market.”

    Two exceptionally creative companies working together should result in some very interesting products.  I can easily see addtional products resulting from this cooperation – as well as developments which Torqeedo could use in other non-competitive (to Hobie) applications.  Hats off to those at the two companies to had the foresight to start the relationship.  I’m looking forward to see what they will be putting on the market.
