Cruise 4.0 Tiller Electric Outboard Motor

Sold Out

Item #1236-00

The Cruise 4.0 has been replaced with the new Cruise 6.0 electric outboard boat motor.


Torqeedo's new models of the Cruise 4.0 electric outboard motor have been improved to meet the demanding challenges of everyday marine use; making them ready to take on the harshest environmental conditions. The Cruise 4.0 is perfect for small boats, dinghies, and sailboats up to 4 tons that need a tiller outboard.

The improvements make the Cruise even more rugged in the event that it runs aground and even better protected against corrosion when used extensively in salt water.

The Cruise 4.0 is comparable to a 8 HP gasoline outboard and can be easily mounted on your boat with a couple of tools, regardless of whether the remote or tiller version.

A power supply from at least two lithium batteries (Power 26-104) or with lead batteries (lead-gel or AGM) at 48V must be provided for operation.

The Cruise 4.0 Tiller is available in short and long shaft versions.
