Torqeedo offers industry-leading warranty on electric outboards
The global market leader for marine electric drives has more than doubled the warranty on its Travel outboard models.
The Travel 603 (2hp) and its 500Wh battery weigh 19.7kg
Torqeedo has increased the warranty on its lightweight Travel 603 and 1103 motors from two to five years. The Germany-based pioneer of electric motors, which has its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Bangkok, launched the Travel series of motors in 2005.
Fabian Bez, CEO of Torqeedo, said: “Since their launch, Torqeedo’s Travel motors have transformed boating by delivering superior technology, revolutionary benefits and environmental responsibility. Even more importantly, they’re incredibly reliable, which is why we’re now offering a five-year manufacturer warranty on all new Travel motors.
The Travel 1103 (3hp) has a 915Wh battery
“Longer warranties provide peace of mind that Travel motors withstand the marine environment with superior longevity and allow more boaters to experience the joy of cleaner, quieter, emission-free time on the water with their family and friends.”
Torqeedo describes the Travel 1103 and Travel 603 motors as “the lighter, quietest outboards in their respective power classes”. Each comes with a high-performance lithium-ion battery and a built-in onboard computer with GPS and remaining range and charge status.
The Travel 1103 and its battery weigh 17kg in total
Travel motors boast a durable direct-drive motor, industrially engineered to provide superior efficiency. The Travel 603 (2hp) weighs 15.5kg and has a 4.2kg 500Wh battery, while the Travel 1103 (3hp) has a high-capacity 915Wh battery yet weighs just 17kg in total.
“At Torqeedo, we understand that our customers expect environmentally respectful boating products that are high quality and cost effective,” Bez said. “Torqeedo continues to lead the way.”
The Travel 1103 and 603 now offer a five-year warranty
The new five-year warranty applies to all Travel motors shipped on or after April 28, 2023. Customers must register their product online at Torqeedo.com to be eligible for the warranty extension.
