The improved Cruise 4.0 R is the perfect choice for boats on green lakes, pontoon boats, sailboats and catamarans. It operates on a 48 V lead-gel or AGM battery bank with greater efficiency and more power than previous models. Other updates include an aluminum cap upgrade for improved corrosion protection and reduced fishing line intrusion.

The new, lighter weight Cruise 4.0 R offers further unique advantages for boaters. Each 48 V electric outboard comes standard with a cable set, fuse, main-switch, remote throttle control with integrated on-board computer and magnetic on/off switch as well as a link-arm to connect to standard steering systems.

Offering 215 lbs. of thrust, the Cruise 4.0 R has the thrust equivalent to a 9.9 hp internal combustion outboard. More importantly, the propulsive power, measured as speed times thrust after all losses including propeller losses, compares to an 8 hp gas outboard in displacement mode.

Each Torqeedo Cruise R motor includes the following parts:

  • Motor with pylon, propeller, shaft, transom mount (with guide tube for remote steering), connection cables for cable set and remote throttle
  • Link arm and small parts for connecting the remote steering
  • Remote throttle control with integrated display and 4 screws M4 in different lengths to mount remote throttle
  • Magnetic key
  • Cable set with main switch, fuse and bridging cable (1 for Cruise 2.0 R, 3 for Cruise 4.0 R)
  • M8 screw to fix the steering (if no connection is desired to the remote steering)
  • Operating manual
  • Warranty certificate

Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 R (48v) Outboard


The lakes and reservoirs in our area are all restricted to electric power. My father and I purchased a 17' bass boat and were looking for a motor powerful enough to handle it. We came across the Torqeedo and it was just what the doctor ordered. It's whisper quiet and pushes the 1000+ lb boat along at a steady 6 mph at 3/4 throttle. We've gotten multiple compliments about the motor and many people asking where they can get one. At this point, we have owned the motor for 1 year and have not had any problems with it. You can tell that the German designers put a lot of research and development into creating the best electric motor possible.
