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, enabling a 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.

Information on range and speed

When travelling through water, displacement increases power required in proportion to the cube (third power) of the speed. This means that doubling water speed increases the power required eightfold.

Conversely, it of course also means that only a slight reduction in speed will increase the range attainable significantly. Simply reducing speed by e.g. half a knot has a considerable effect on the remaining range.

Since mental arithmetic to the power of three is quite tricky, the on-board computer of the Travel constantly calculates the remaining range for you. To do this, it combines the consumption data from the motor with the charge level of the batteries together with the speed over water obtained via GPS. This means you can read the remaining range in real time from the Travel's display. Using the TorqTrac App you can even read the remaining range from a map on your smartphone.

* 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.

Torqeedo Travel 503/1003

Torqeedo Travel 1003 for tenders, dinghies and daysailers up to 1.5 tons ≡ 3 HP There is an alternative to small petrol outboards. With its integrated battery it is as handy as a small petrol outboard. It provides the same propulsive power and it will cover the same distance as a small petrol outboard with an integrated tank.

The video provides an overview of the controls and the benefits of the Travel motor. It answers the most important questions about the motor's performance, range, functionality of the on-board computer, battery charging, waterproof properties and solar chargeability.

Travel 1003 FAQ

  • Which Travel for which boat?

    Both models are suitable for inflatables and other small boats.

    For sailboats up to 750 kg we recommend the Travel 503. The Travel 1003 easily propels up to 1.5 tons. Both models provide similar performance on the same boat at the same speed.

    However, the Travel 1003 has a higher maximum power and offers over 60% more battery capacity, providing longer range.

  • And when the battery is empty – how does it take until I can continue on my way?

    That depends on the solution you choose. You can of course take a spare battery with you, which will make you mobile again immediately.

    Or you can connect a solar charger (accessories) and charge while you're under way.

    Or you can charge from the 12 V on-board power system direct.

    Or you could connect the battery to an electric socket using the charger provided – it will take approx. 5 hours to fully charge a Travel 503 or approx. 7 hours to charge a Travel 1003.

  • How does solar charging work?

    Unfold or unroll the solar charger, apply its waterproof connector to the Travel and get started.

    You can use it while being out on the water and while operating the motor or you can use it on land.

    Two different solar chargers are available for the Travel, depending on the model year.

  • What is the life expectancy of lithium batteries?

    The life expectancy of lithium batteries in recreational use is, more or less, independent of charging cycles. There is no memory effect either, i.e. you can fully charge them after each trip, irrespective of the charge status shown in the display.

    Generally speaking, a capacity loss of approx. 4 % per year is to be expected. Capacity loss will, however, accelerate if the battery is permanently exposed to heat.

    Also storing the battery always fully charged will accelerate ageing. There are no concerns about using the battery in high temperatures, we recommend that you take the battery out of the sun and store it in a cool place after use.

    Your battery must be returned to a Torqeedo Service Centre for service 8 years after the date of manufacture.

  • Heat – don't batteries suffer damage at high temperatures?

    No, because we've integrated a temperature protection mode. Motor power is automatically reduced before the battery gets too hot

    until the temperature returns to a level where there is no risk of damage to the battery.

    This function is represented in the display with a thermometer.

  • What power does the integrated battery provide?

    The Travel 503 battery has a capacity of 320 Wh, which means 11 Ah at 29.6 V.

    For the Travel 1003 this is an impressive 530 Wh, or 18 Ah at 29.6 V.

  • How safe is the Travel?

    With its emergency kill switch – very safe. The motor only runs when the emergency magnetic stop key is placed in the prescribed position on the remote throttle or tiller.

    The magnetic pin should always be attached to your wrist or to your life jacket.

    Should you fall overboard, the magnetic key will go with you and the motor will stop immediately.

    This prevents the risk of injury from the propeller under water.

  • What is the warranty?

    There is a two-year warranty on the Travel from the date of purchase.
