The story behind the 80hp electric outboard
NEW ORLEANS - Here at the WorkBoat show, Torqeedo turned heads with Deep Blue, the company's 80hp electric outboard system. Their press release announcing its availability at the show was the most-clicked press release on our web site during the show week and the traffic at the company's booth was more than steady over the show's three days.
It made sense, then, for WorkBoat online editor Sam Pfeifle to stop by and see what all the fuss was about. He spoke with Torqeedo VP of business development Chris Carroll about Deep Blue's capabilities, what technological advancements made it possible, and what the ceiling might be for electric engines in the future.
