Torqeedo has introduced a new flagship model for the Cruise 10.0, its low-voltage Cruise line.

This 20-hp-equivalent, emission-free outboard can plane light boats at speeds of as much as 28 mph and moves displacement hulls from 3 to 10 tons as fast as 9 mph.

"Torqeedo's range of products encompasses systems from 1 hp all the way up to the 80-hp high-voltage Deep Blue," Torqeedo president and general manager Steve Trkla said in a statement.

“The Cruise 10.0 provides a clean, green and quiet alternative for commercial and recreational users who prefer the simplicity and easy handling of a low-voltage system, but require more speed, thrust and power than previously available.”
