Travel 603 S
The whisper-quiet, direct-drive technology of the best-selling Travel 1103 is now available in a lighter, more affordable package: the brand-new Travel 603. These clean and convenient electric outboards make motoring easy and carefree.
Travel 603 – Benefits:
On-board computer with GPS-based range calculation:
- With its integrated lithium battery and its outstanding efficiency, the Travel is the alternative to a small petrol outboard
- Can do everything that a 2 HP petrol outboard can, plus it’s environmentally friendlier, quieter, lighter and more convenient
- Completely waterproof (IP67)
- Floating high-performance lithium battery
- Instantaneous throttle response
- On-board computer with GPS-based calculation of remaining range
- Solar rechargeable – including during the voyage
- Can be easily dismantled for transport and space-saving storage; the outboard on its own weighs only 15.5 kg
- A clean affair: no matter how or where you store your Travel – there’s no risk of leakage or petrol smells

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 Travel'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.

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.
Travel 503 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 be on the move again?
That depends on the solution you have opted for.
You could of course take a spare battery with you, which will ensure you can be on the move again immediately.
Or you could connect a solar charger (accessory) and charge it while you’re on the move.
Or you could 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 capacity 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 520 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.
