The Travel 503 delivers over 500 watts of input power and in terms of propulsion is comparable with 1.5 HP petrol outboard.

Its name says it all. With the Travel 503 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 503 is suitable for inflatables and other small boats.

Like the Travel 1003, the Travel 503 is available in short-shaft and long-shaft versions.

  • Can do everything that a 1.5 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.

* Depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.

Information on range and speed:

For a displacement boat making way through the water, the required propulsive power increases in proportion to the cube of the speed. This means that if you want to double your speed, you need eight times as much power.

And vice-versa, a small reduction in speed is enough to increase the achievable range substantially.

The Torqeedo Travel's on-board computer calculates the remaining range constantly, by linking the motor's consumption data with the charging level of the batteries, and the speed over the ground from the GPS. This allows you to read the remaining range in real time from the motor display or the smartphone app TorqTrac.

* 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.

It works well, so far! Looks nicely designed/built and a good thing it comes apart . It seems a long short shaft however,if that makes sense!
