Cruise fixed pod motors are the electric motors of choice for sailboats. All Cruise pods have a built-in GPS with on-board computer and display with speed and input power, state of charge and remaining range, with a compact, low-drag, and lightweight pylon due to advanced helical gear design. Cruise 3.0 is a 24-Volt, six horsepower-equivalent pod drive perfect for sailboats up to 30 feet or displacement hulls up to 3 tons.

With a single Power 24-3500 lithium battery, this lightweight and budget-friendly e-drive gives you up to one hour of full-throttle runtime and runs all day at slower speeds. Need more range or speed? You can add up to 8 Power 24-3500 batteries for more energy storage. Choose from a standard top-mount throttle (1918-00) or (1949-00) throttle sail side mounting (sold separately). Motor with the fixed propeller (standard) or choose the optional folding propeller (1985-00).


Cruise 3.0 FP Benefits:

  • High-efficiency pod drive with 3,000 W input power, equivalent to a 6 HP petrol saildrive
  • Pair with Power 24-3500 for best performance and accurate range/runtime functionality
  • Hydrogeneration mode: charge your batteries while sailing with standard fixed propeller or optional folding propeller (1985-00)
  • Smaller and lighter than combustion saildrives
  • Your choice of throttle: standard throttle (1918-00) or add a throttle sail side mounting (1949-00)
  • Minimal impact on sailing speed
  • Highest-grade seawater-proof aluminum for long service life, even in the harshest conditions
  • Comprehensive galvanic corrosion protection through careful matching of all materials and meticulous isolation of materials with different electrochemical properties - ships with anode set for fresh and saltwater
  • Also compatible with third-party batteries (24-volt) but careful matching to motor power requirements is needed

*Torqeedo static thrust measurement is based on internationally accepted ISO standards. Static thrust figures for conventional trolling motors are typically measured differently, which results in higher values. To compare Torqeedo static thrust data with conventional trolling motors, add approximately 50% to the Torqeedo static thrust values.
