Cruise 4.0 RL with Remote Throttle with Short Shaft

For motorboats, dinghies and sailboats up to 4 tons

Youtube \ Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 R / English - Sub-Title Available


The new models of the Cruise 4.0 have been improved to meet the demanding challenges of everyday commercial use; making them ready to take on the harshest environmental conditions, for example with dinghies and sailboats up to 4 tons.

This makes 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 petrol 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 one lithium battery (Power 26-104) or with lead batteries (lead-gel or AGM) must be provided for operation.


Cruise 4.0 RL - Benefits :

  • High-efficiency outboard with 4,000 W input power, equivalent to a 8 HP petrol outboard.
  • All Cruise models are suitable for inflatables and other small boats.
  • We recommend the Cruise 4.0 for dinghies and sailboats up to to 4 tons.
  • Remote steering connector option, comes with remote throttle.
  • Rugged aluminium pylon with reinforced fin – extra robust even when running aground
  • Shaft sealant rings mounted in protected area on the inside of the pylons
  • Highest-grade seawater-proof aluminium (AlMgSi1), hard-anodized for long service life, even in the harshest conditions
  • Lubricant-free polymer plain bearings protect against damage from fishing lines or debris and provide improved mechanical support for propeller shaft – wear-resistant and maintenance-free.
  • Comprehensive galvanic corrosion protection through careful matching of all materials and meticulous isolation of materials with different electrochemical properties.
  • Aluminium fin coated in polyurethane foam provides additional protection from impacts
  • Everything is waterproof to IP67.

Range Information

When travelling through water, displacement increases power required in proportion to the cube (third power) of the speed. This means that doubling water speed increases the power required eightfold.

Conversely, it of course also means that only a slight reduction in speed will increase the range attainable significantly. Simply reducing speed by e.g. half a knot has a considerable effect on the remaining range.

Since mental arithmetic to the power of three is quite tricky, the on-board computer of the Cruise constantly calculates the remaining range for you. To do this, it combines the consumption data from the motor with the charge level of the batteries together with the speed over water obtained via GPS. This means you can read the remaining range in real time from the Cruise's display. Using the TorqTrac App you can even read the remaining range from a map on your smartphone.

* 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.
