Product Description

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
