With its integrated lithium battery and its outstanding efficiency, the Torqeedo Travel is the alternative to a small gasoline outboard. The Travel 1103C 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 1103C has an ultra-quiet motor at just 33dB and includes the high-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 1103C 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 1103C is suitable for inflatables and many other small boats. Available in short-shaft and long-shaft versions.
Wee Expert Tip - Need help choosing the shaft-length?
The short-shaft Travel 1103C (24.6" shaft spec) is 19.5 inches from the inside-top-of-the-mount to the tip-of-the-prop. The long-shaft Travel 1103C (29.5" shaft spec) is 24.4 inches from the inside-top-of-the-mount to the tip-of-the-prop.
Torqeedo recommends keeping a minimum of 1.2 - 2.0 inches of clearance between the bottom-of-the-hull and the tip-of-the-prop.
In order to comply with Torqeedo's minimum propeller clearance recommendation:
For the short-shaft Travel 1103C, the boat should have a maximum top-of-transom to bottom-of-hull measurement of 18.3 inches.
For the long-shaft Travel 1103C, the boat should have a maximum top-of-transom to bottom-of-hull measurement of 23.2 inches.
Wee Expert Tip #2 - Make sure to order an appropriate anode. The Zinc Anode 1939-00 for salt water and the Aluminum Anode 1905-00 for use in both fresh and salt water. Either anode installs by screwing to the shaft and helps to reduce corrosion.

Hi what's the diferance between Travel 1103 c and the Travel 1103cs
The Travel 1103CS is shorthand notation for the short-shaft version of the Travel 1103C. Likewise, the Travel 1103CL is the long-shaft version of the Travel 1103C.
Thank you for your site, I've gotten more answers here than anywhere on the internet, including Torqeedo's site. I have three questions about the 1103c: (1) Can you lift the tiller up when you pull it toward you for stowing, without disengaging it from the unit, or is it only stable when it's perpendicular to the shaft (2) thanks so much for the link to the dimensions sheet (why can't I find it elsewhere}, but is there a more definitive dimension of how far the tiller extends from the front of the transom clamp? (3) can you use any magnet for a kill switch? Thanks again!
i I currently use a 4 hp Tohatsu longshaft (25-inch) outboard to power my 19-foot Cape Dory Typhoon sailboat, which weighs 2,000 lbs. I'm assuming the Torqeedo 1103CL will meet my needs. I generally sail in Florida's Crystal River and only need 5-10 minutes of slow speed power (2-3 knots) to motor out of my canal to the river. Are my assumptions correct?
Hello and thanks for your question about Torqeedo's Travel 1103C electric outboard motor. Torqeedo specifies the 1103C as equivalent to a 3 to 4 hp gasoline outboard and suitable for a day sailor up to 1.5 tons of displacement. With the included 915 Wh battery you will have approximately 50 minutes of full-throttle operation. So even if you needed full-throttle for the entire 20 minutes of the roundtrip canal transit (due to the environmental conditions, unexpected traffic, or vessel load) you would still have 30 minutes in reserve.*
It seems that your assumptions are correct about the Travel 1103C long-shaft being suitable for how your are using the Typhoon sailboat.
You may also want to review Practical Sailor's article where they tested a Travel 1003 (the predecessor to the more powerful and quieter 1103C) on a Cape Dory Typhoon in their article Portable Electric Propulsion for Small Sailboats.

With the remote throttle kit, can the Torqeedo 1103cs be connected to a steering system?
Thanks for your question! The Travel 1103C is not designed to be connected to a steering system. It does include a fixing pin so that the outboard is in a fixed (centered) location, so that an external rudder can be used (such as on a sailboat). The remote throtttle kit is intended to be used for those situations where the outboard is mounted in a fixed (remote) position and a separate steering system is utilized. The remote throttle then gives you control of the throttle position, fwd/reverse selection, and a display showing the status.
If you have any other questions feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How far into the water or under the water should the propeller be to function properly?
Which one for a pontoon boat
Thanks for your question about the Travel 1103C electric outboard. To give you our best recommendation for an electric propulsion system, please email us at email@example.com with the make and model information of your pontoon boat.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
I am interested in using the 1103CL on two different sailboats. On one of the boats the standard throttle/tiller will work fine. On the other I would need to remove the tiller and have a remote throttle in the cockpit. Can I use the tiller/throttle in this fashion with your extension cable? I would also like to move the battery below deck and charge it through an inverter and my onboard 12v battery. Is this possible?
Can I use the tiller/throttle in this fashion with your extension cable?
The 1921-00 extension cable 1.5 meters is able to extened the connection of the tiller to the outboard. Part 1922-00 is a 5 meter extension cable if you need a longer distance.
You could also buy the Remote Throttle part number 1918-00 instead of using the tiller remotely. The remote throttle includes both the 1.5m and 5m cables, so you can use the appropriate length for your installation. The Travel 1103C electric outboard motor also includes a fixing pin so that the motor does not turn and you can use the boats rudder in order to steer.
I would also like to move the battery below deck and charge it through an inverter and my onboard 12v battery. Is this possible?
There is a 2 meter battery extension cable part 1920-00 that is able to increase the distance between the battery and the motor. You will need the 12V charging cable part 1128-00 in order to charge the battery.
You can contact Wee Boats at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions regarding the Travel 1103C outboard.
Is Wee Boats a Torqueedo authorized dealer in the US?
Yes, Wee Boats is an authorized Torqeedo dealer and we comply with all of Torqeedo North America's dealer requirements.
How long of a charge time from battery at 50% to fully charged 100%? Do you provide additional shear pins for the prop? What is the life expectancy of the OEM battery and what would be the replacement cost at todays prices? What are the long term maintenance requirements for the Torqeedo outboards? Thank you in advance for your response.
The included AC powered charger with the 1103C is a 90W output and the included battery is the 915Wh capacity battery. If the 915Wh battery is at a 50% state-of-charge it will be about 5 hours to be 100% charged using the included AC powered charger.
Torqeedo does not include spare shear pins for the prop with the 1103C but they can be ordered.
According to Torqeedo, "The life expectancy of a lithium battery does not really depend on the charging cycles. It is not subject to memory effect, either, i.e. you can fully charge it after each trip irrespective of the charge status shown in the display. Generally speaking, a capacity loss of approx. 4 % per year is to be expected with lithium batteries. Capacity loss will, however, accelerate if the battery is permanently exposed to heat. While there there are no concerns about using the battery in high temperatures, we recommend that you take the battery out of the sun and store it in a cool place after use. Your battery must be returned to a Torqeedo Service Centre for service 8 years after the date of manufacture."
The current replacement cost of the 915Wh Travel battery is $945.99.
The only long-term maintenance requirement of the Travel outboard is that the shaft seal should be replaced by an authorized service center every 5 years.
What is the difference between the 1103c and the 1103cs?
The 1103CS notates that it is the short shaft version of the Travel 1103C electric outboard motor. So the 1103CL would be the long shaft version.
Where is the Short shaft measured from? Where is the Long shaft measured from?
The diagram of the measurements for both the short and long shaft Travel 1103C electric outboards are available on this drawing Torqeedo Travel 1003C (1103C) Measurements. It also shows the other physical measurements of the outboard as well. The propeller diameter on the drawing is from the 1003C. The 1103C prop diameter is slightly smaller at 260mm.
