    Torqeedo Cruise 3.0 FP Torqeedo Cruise 3.0 FP


    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

    Stable pylon
    made from highest-grade seawater-proof aluminum

    Waterproof to IPx9K outside the hull when completely assembled

    Extra robust
    design protects against damage from debris – wear-resistant and maintenance-free

    Maximum efficiency
    for greater performance and range

    TorqLink is Torqeedo’s advanced electronics communication system developed for Deep Blue and now available for select Cruise motors, throttles and Power 48-5000 batteries. All products marked TorqLink will communicate seamlessly at startup. A TorqLink Gateway (2217-00) allows you to include components without TorqLink in your system.


  • Range

    Cruise 6.0 FP with 1 × Power 48-5000


    Speed in knots (mph)* Range in nm (mi)*
    Slow 4.2 (4.8) 27.1 (31.1)
    Full throttle 7.7 (8.9) 7.3 (8.4)

    * 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 Cruise'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.

  • Tips

    Cruise 6.0 FP TorqLink FAQs

    • Which Cruise for which boat?

      For sailboats up to 3 tons, we recommend the Cruise 3.0. The Cruise 6.0 easily propels up to 6 tons. The Cruise 12.0 is suitable for motorboats and sailboats with a weight of up to 10 metric tons.

    • Is the on-board computer compatible with my lead batteries?

      Yes, but with limitations.

      If the Cruise is operated with lead batteries the charge status indicator (and with it the remaining range indicator) is based on estimates derived from battery information entered during initial motor setup.

    • What are the advantages of the Power 48-5000 lithium battery for the Cruise?

      What are the advantages of the Power 48-5000 lithium battery for the Cruise? As a lithium battery, the Power 48-5000 provides far greater performance with lower weight than conventional lead batteries. In other words, it does not weigh down your boat unnecessarily – and you benefit in terms of range and power. Additionally, the integrated battery electronics of the Power 48-5000 are designed to communicate with the on-board computer, meaning that the values provided by the battery such as remaining range and capacity are always exact.

    • What is the warranty on the Cruise?

      The Cruise models have 2-year warranty from the date of purchase for non-commercial use.
