The Travel 1003C has been discontinued; there are still a few long-shafts available. The Travel 603 will begin shipping in 2021. The Travel 1103C is available now!


With its integrated lithium battery and its outstanding efficiency, the Torqeedo Travel is the alternative to a small gasoline outboard. The Travel 1003C electric outboard motor can do everything that a 3 HP outboard motor can. But it's lighter, cleaner, quieter and more convenient. The new Travel 1003C includes a large capacity 915 Wh battery to keep your wee boat on the water longer!

The Travel easily propels tenders, dinghies and daysailers up to 1.5 tons and – when it's needed – over long distances, too.

It's also something of an expert when it comes to communication, too. It discloses its most important information to you, connects with your smartphone and can be charged from a standard power outlet, from a 12 V connection or from a solar charger.

The Travel can charge other electrical devices for you, as well. The Travel batteries are equipped with a USB adapter, allowing your mobile phone, laptops and other equipment to share the Travel's abundant battery capacity.

Its name says it all. With the Travel 1003C you can discover the world on water, completely waterproof to IP67. Thanks to the on-board computer with its GPS-based calculation of the remaining range, you always have your own travel guide with you.

The Travel 1003C is suitable for inflatables and many other small boats.  Available in short-shaft and long-shaft versions.

Wee Expert Tip - Is your Torqeedo motor not near a power source very often?  Consider using a solar charger to help recharge the battery.
