The Travel 1003 delivers over 1,000 watts of input power and in terms of propulsion is comparable with 3 HP petrol outboard.

Its name says it all. With the Travel 1003 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.

Compared with the Travel 503, the Travel 1003 has higher overall power and offers over 60% more battery capacity. The Travel 1003 C offers almost three times the battery capacity of the Travel 503, which is why it has a significantly greater range.

Both motors are suitable for inflatables and other small boats. The Travel 1003 will also easily propel tenders, dinghies and sailboats up to 1.5 tons.

Travel 1003 – Benefits:

With its integrated lithium battery and its outstanding efficiency, the Travel is the alternative to a small petrol outboard.

Can do everything that a 1.5 / 3 HP petrol outboard can, plus it’s environmentally friendlier, quieter, lighter and more convenient.

Completely waterproof (IP67).

On-board computer with GPS-based calculation of remaining range.

Solar rechargeable – including during the voyage.

Can be easily dismantled for transport and space-saving storage; the outboard on its own weighs only 8.9 kg.

A clean affair: no matter how or where you store your Travel – there’s no risk of leakage or petrol smells.

* 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.

Shaft Length & Battery Capacity : Short Shaft with 915Wh battery - Price £1,570
So far so good - motor provides both an auxiliary engine for my boat, and for use on my canoe. Duration of charge very impressive when used for steady progress, e.g. for canal expeditions.

Really good heavy duty quality. Excellent power output.

Shaft Length : Short Shaft with 520Wh battery - Price £1,195
Disappointed by poor casting alignment and fit of external components for this premium priced product. (Presumably tolerances are better internally.)
Low power tank testing indicated good low speed controllability and low noise levels. (Full test not expected until spring)
Battery charge at about 26% on delivery lower than expected.
It may yet prove to be a 5 star performer?

Shaft Length : Long Shaft with 915Wh battery - Price £1,540
Perfect so far. Runs quietly and reliably, and battery life / range seems OK too.

Shaft Length : Short Shaft - Price £1,195
Well made bit of kit but battery life is low even taking all factors into consideration. Sadly you will need another battery to be able to consider replacing completely your old noisy, smelly oil dripping outboard! An investment I will make when I can get over the price of one again..
(Its the only reason I haven't rated the item higher).

Although it has not taken to the water yet (February in England is not conducive),my new Torqeedo Travel seems to be well made and I'm certainly looking forward to an opportunity to use it.

Have received a short shaft but on an inflatable seems too long. Still drags on ground when retrieving the dingy on the beach.????
