Eco-adventurer Raphaël Domjan is planning a nearly 2,000-mile journey with a solar electric kayak. Domjan plans to travel the Northwest Passage along the northern coast of North America from the Pacific to the Atlantic with an electric kayak propelled by an Ultralight 403 from Torqeedo.
Torqeedo, of Germany, is a manufacturer of electric outboard engines for recreational boats.
Electric engine maker Torqeedo now offers a shaft-drive version of its award-winning 40- and 80-hp Deep Blue motor.
Torqeedo has updated its electric outboards with a new design to meet the demands of commercial users.
New technology has made cleaner, more efficient boats and engines more available than ever before, but some manufacturers say educating the American boater about cleaner alternatives can feel like an uphill battle.
Electric-engine manufacturer Torqeedo is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year by introducing its new Deep Blue Hybrid this month at the Miami International Boat Show.
Torqeedo is growing its Deep Blue product line with the introduction of a Deep Blue Hybrid, the first fully integrated system that acts as an energy supply for both the hybrid drive and all AC/DC electrical loads on board.
Expanding its international team of executives, electric propulsion manufacturer Torqeedo named Tom Watson as vice president of global accounts.
Electric engine manufacturer Torqeedo named Capt. Todd Sims as its hybrid systems global sales and product manager.
Electric boat engine manufacturer Torqeedo tapped Christian Pho Duc to manage the sales department at Torqeedo GmbH and Stefan J. Hubert was appointed head of marketing for the Torqeedo Group worldwide.
Torqeedo said its Cruise 4.0 motor and lithium-ion batteries will power Bennington’s new Electric Series of pontoon boats.
