Ask a Question
  • What would your guess be for top speed on a 2021 harris solstice 230 with a cruise 10.0 using lithium 24-3500 batteries?

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your question regarding the Cruise 10 electric outboard remote version, which is now using Torqeedo's new TorqLink.  The Cruise 10 remote with TorqLink is not compatible with the Power 24-3500 batteries.  To operate the Cruise 10 at full-power (10kW) it requires two Power 48-5000 batteries (using one Power 48-5000 will limit the motor to 6kW).

    The top speed of the Harris Solstice 230 is going to be depedent on a number of factors (weather and current factors excluded) including the vessel configuration, load (passengers), and the prop that is installed.  The Harris Solstice 230 is available in a number of tube configurations and so the weight range of the vessel is from 2,728 lbs to 3,460 lbs, which is significantly different and will impact top speed.  The available passenger load capacity is 12 -13 persons or 2,430 lbs.  So clearly the top speed will be significantly reduced when fully loaded with passengers.  Lastly, for pontoon boats I typically recommend for folks to try swapping the included standard v22/p10k prop for the v15/p10k (PN 1937-00).  This prop has an 11" pitch instead of 13" and will limit top speed to a max of about 7.5 MPH* (regardless of vessel) but it will give you more thrust at the lower speeds increasing your ability to control the vessel when loaded with passengers, gear, and the all important beverages. 

    The Solstice 230 is rated for up to a 300HP gas outboard with 3 tubes (200HP with 2 tubes).  The Cruise 10 is equivalent to a 20 to 25HP gas outboard.  So you will need to keep your speed expectations reasonable as you will never match the gas outboard.  What you will get is a quieter experience with dramatically easier operation and maintenance.

    Please feel free to email us at with any other questions!

    * Range and speed depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.

    For a displacement boat making way through the water, the required propulsive power increases in proportion to the cube of the speed. This means that if you want to double your speed, you need eight times as much power.  And vice-versa, a small reduction in speed is enough to increase the achievable range substantially.  The Torqeedo Cruise's on-board computer calculates the remaining range constantly, by linking the motor's consumption data with the charging level of the batteries, and the speed over the ground from the GPS. This allows you to read the remaining range in real time from the motor display or the smartphone app TorqTrac.

  • Does this include steering cables? Length? Steering box? Throttle cables and controls? Side or center mount and length?

    The following items are inclued with the Remote version of Torqeedo's Cruise 10.0 Electric Outboard: Throttle with integrated information display including data cable (5m), magnetic kill switch, 70 mm2 battery cable with main switch (4.5m), connecting rod for remote steering, standard prop v22/p10k, and sacrificial anodes (Al).  The details of the installation are in the Cruise 10.0 User Manual with connection instructions beginning on page 76.

    Regarding the steering, you will need to provide all of the steering components besides the connecting rod assembly (this is shown in the User Manual).

  • Are there any outboard options with Jet Drive? I run a boat on rivers and need a jet drive function to protect the propellor. Any info is appreciated.

    Torqeedo does not currently have a Jet Drive option for their electric outboards.

  • I'm looking for a remote control dingy that I can operate from 300 feet away. Do you know of such a product?

    Thanks for the question but I am not aware of a remote control dinghy.  Sound interesting I suppose.

  • Princecraft Brio17' can be bought with a torqueedo 4.0 is that engines powerful enough to pull a tube with kids?

    According to Torqeedo, the Cruise 4.0 speed tops out at 7.0 knots*.  So given that most tubes require significantly greater speed it is doubtful that a Cruise 4.0 would be sufficient.
    * Depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.

  • If used on an 18' long Avalon pontoon boat could you pull a tube with kids at a good rate of speed

    There are a lot of variables involved (total boat weight, environmental conditions, etc) but if you can do it with a 20hp gasoling outboard then it is possible that you could with the Cruise 10.0.  Do keep in mind that with four Power 26-104 batteries, according to Torqeedo, you will have approxiximately 48 minutes* of full throttle operation.

  • Hello What is the difference between the propulsive power and thrust?

    According to Torqeedo,

    "Power rating: propulsive power (expressed in HP or watts)  
    Like the manufacturers of commercial ships, we always refer to the propulsive power of our drive systems, i.e. the power that is actually delivered to propel the boat taking into account all losses, including those associated with the propeller. Propulsive power can be used to compare all motors with each other.  

    Power rating: static thrust (expressed in lbs or lbf)
    Static thrust says something about the motor's ability to get the boat from a standstill up to a very slow speed. It says nothing about the motor's ability to propel the boat at normal speed – it is therefore unsuitable as an indication of power."

    Also this article from Torqeedo contains a lot of good info in regards to motor power ratings
