Brownie's Marine Group signs deal with Torqeedo

Brownie's Marine Group now has authorized service center status for Torqeedo, the leader in battery-powered clean outboard boat motors.

"Torqeedo has solidly dominated the battery-powered boat motor category with superior technology and revolutionary benefits, according to independent industry experts. A range of prizes and awards already decorate the Torqeedo corporate halls," Brownie's Marine Group CEO Robert Carmichael said in a statement.

Based in Stranberg, Germany, since its formation in 2005, Torqeedo is known to boaters as a pioneer in variable-speed electric outboards. Its award-winning motors feature integrated lithium batteries, an ultra-light design and on-board computers. Brownie's Marine Group's novel VS Dive System technology parallels the technology and market space now dominated by Torqeedo in a positive, synergistic way. Torqeedo motor and battery owners can adapt a Brownie VS system to their onboard power source and they are already culturally geared to DC energy sources.

"Torqeedo's strength was recently displayed when the venture capital arm of the Bosch Group invested in the company," Carmichael said.

For the coming season at Torqeedo, there are 14 motors ranging from 1 to 80 hp, which is creating a significant demand for professional service and support resources in key boating regions. Brownie's Marine Group has recognized the compounding benefit of joining forces and has already completed service technician training sessions and initiated fully authorized warranty and traditional service to dealers and direct to end-users.
