Deep Blue i 1800 rpm
It is not just power and performance that make Deep Blue the first of its kind. It is unparalleled performance combined with full system integration and groundbreaking safety levels that set Deep Blue apart from all other electric propulsion systems on the market.
All the components of the system are perfectly engineered to match each other and are completely waterproof. State-of-the art monitoring technology with pilot lines and insulation monitors safeguard the high-voltage system against the risk of short circuits. The same high-performance lithium batteries used to power cars also power Deep Blue – after we developed them further for use in boats. These and many more safety and performance features make Deep Blue a unique high-voltage propulsion system for electric boats.
And if that's not enough – we provide a 9-year warranty on the Deep Blue's battery capacity, that's right, 9 years. Electric boat propulsion is not only powerful and safe, it is also a genuine commercial alternative for heavy users in particular. Whether the 40 HP or 80 HP version – switch to full electric power!
Deep Blue i 1800 rpm – Benefits:
- Deep Blue: the first high-power propulsion system in serial production. A fully integrated system in which all components are designed to match each other seamlessly and to work together perfectly on the water. An overall concept that is unique in terms of safety, performance and range.
- The Deep Blue i 1800 rpm is the "planer" at your side.
- Available as 40 HP or 80 HP equivalent depending on requirements.
- 9-year warranty on battery bank:
a reliable battery lifespan is key for electric boating economics. That is why the Deep Blue battery comes with a long-term battery capacity warranty: 9 years after commissioning, the batteries will still have 80 % of their original capacity, even if you use them every day.* Battery ageing is transparent and can be tracked by the user in the on-board computer at any time.
* Adherence to warranty conditions required. See Deep Blue battery capacity warranty at www.torqeedo.com for more details.
- Low-maintenance system: switching makes sense from as little as EUR 4,600 in annual fuel costs – contact us for more information.
Charger: Advanced engineering from the automotive industry. Waterproof to IP67. The charging rate can be controlled via the display. Each system can support multiple chargers for faster charging when required.Electronic throttle: clean, slick design, with key switch, emergency-stop and neutral lock for safe operation. Power-trim-and-tilt for outboard operation. (See page 60-61 for throttle options)Deep Blue information system on high resolution marine display: touchscreen, waterproof, good sunlight readability. Clean, clearly arranged display of system information.BMW i battery: latest battery generation from BMW i3 and BMW i8 series. Very high energy density, durable, robust, highest level of quality and safety.System Management Unit: Bundles all AC inputs and allows charging from onshore power (while at dock) or from a generator (while at sea). Waterproof to IP67, with integrated water sensor.High-power electric motor: Specially developed for the requirements of the Deep Blue system. Electronically commutated brushless motor with outstanding efficiency (max. 98%). Suitable for salt water cooling.12 V battery: activates the high-capacity battery at each start-up. Supplies 12 V for the onboard network and is automatically charged from the 360 V battery. No additional 12 V charger required.

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 Deep Blue'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.

When is it worth switching to the Deep Blue?
Switching could make sense for you from as little as EUR 4,600 in annual fuel costs.
Are your fuel costs higher than EUR 4,600 per year? If they are, it might be worth switching to the Deep Blue today. The Deep Blue will in any case protect you from the expected increases in fuel prices. And you will be setting an example for economic reason while showing respect for nature and demonstrating how we can retain mobility in increasingly difficult ecological conditions – more quietly, more cleanly and with greater environmental awareness.
What maintenance is involved?
Transparent maintenance overhead.
An electric drive system requires far less maintenance than comparable drive systems using fossil fuel
What is the warranty?
The Deep Blue has a 2-year warranty from the date of purchase for non-commercial use.
9-year warranty on battery bank
