Zodiac Milpro adds Torqeedo electric outboard

Zodiac Milpro is using an electronic outboard system for the first time ever with Torqeedo’s 80-hp motor called Deep Blue.

Zodiac is using the electronic engine for its SRMN600, which is designed for military and professional customers, according to the company. The 20-foot RIB is heavy-duty and needs a durable motor.

"Torqeedo is a reputable brand," Vince Palmeri of Zodiac Milpro said in a statement. "This is our first pass at utilizing non-combustion propulsion to power one of our RIBs. We believe this is only the first of many projects with Torqeedo and the beginning of a strong partnership. We hope to work with them to make the concept of Torqeedo and Zodiac Milpro even more applicable to military and professional markets."

"We are very pleased to be working with Zodiac Milpro, an industry leader for several decades," Torqueedo business development vice president Chris Carroll said in a statement. "We couldn't think of a better partner to align with for the introduction into the commercial segments that they cater to."

The SRMN600 will be in operation and available for test rides at the upcoming Charleston Race Week (April 18-21) in South Carolina.
