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 due to advanced helical gear design. Cruise 6.0 is a 48-Volt, 9.9 horsepower-equivalent pod drive perfect for sailboats up to 6 tons.

The Cruise 6.0 FP ships with Torqeedo’s advanced communication system, TorqLink, which allows faster and more accurate data sharing between system components. Pair with your choice of TorqLink throttle (1976-00) or (1949-00) throttle side sail (sold separately). Motor with the fixed propeller (standard) or choose the optional folding propeller (1988-00).

Cruise 6.0 FP – Benefits:

  • High-efficiency pod drive with 6,000 W input power, equivalent to a 9.9 HP petrol saildrive
  • Pair with Power 48-5000 for best performance and accurate range/runtime functionality
  • Hydrogeneration mode: charge your batteries while sailing using the fixed standard propeller or optional folding propeller (1988-00)
  • 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
  • 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 (48-Volt) but careful matching to motor power requirements is needed and additional cable set part number 1990-00 is required
