Product Description

Cruise fixed pod motors are the electric motors of choice for sailboats. All Cruise pods have a built-in GPS with an onboard computer and display with speed and input power, state of charge and remaining range, with a compact, low-drag, and lightweight pylon with advanced helical gear design. Cruise 12.0 FP is a 48-Volt, 25 horsepower-equivalent pod drive perfect for sailboats up to 12 tons.

The Cruise 12.0 FP ships with Torqeedo’s advanced communication system, TorqLink, which allows faster and more accurate data sharing between system components.

Cruise 3.0 FP – Benefits:

  • High-efficiency pod drive with 12,000 W input power, equivalent to a 25 HP petrol saildrive
  • Pair with Power 48-5000 for best performance and accurate range/runtime functionality
  • Hydrogeneration mode: charge your batteries while sailing
  • Smaller and lighter than combustion saildrives
  • Your choice of TorqLink throttles: TorqLink throttle with color display (1976-00) or throttle sail side mounting (1949-00) recommended
  • Minimal impact on sailing speed when optional 1945-00 folding-propeller is installed
  • 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
