Solar electric inflatable yacht unveiled in Miami

February 2011 News
A world leader in electric propulsion, Torqeedo takes it to the next level at this year's Miami International Boat Show, February 17-21, in Miami, Florida.  In the company's slip #126 at the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center and in booth #R86 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, it will debut a solar electric inflatable yacht tender.

Powered by a Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric motor and a Power Film solar panel, the new Sea Eagle 10.6 SRRIK features a drop stitch floor, patent-pending drop-stitch outside keel and weighs only 93 lbs.  The Torqeedo 1003 short shaft motor weighs only 19.6 lbs and its integral lithium battery weighs only 9.9 lbs.  The bimini-mounted Power Film solar panel weighs less than 4 lbs.

More powerful and stronger than previous models, the Travel 1003 has a 520 Wh lithium battery, which can be charged with the 45 watt, 24V Power Film solar panel.  While under power, the solar panel continues to charge the Torqeedo motor, significantly extending its range.  Fully fresh and saltwater-proof, it can also be rigged for remote throttle with its removable tiller arm.

The 10.6 SRRIK delivers tremendous stability and razor-sharp turning abilities with its inflated drop-stitch external keel, giving the same performance as heavier floorboard models.  This inflatable craft measures 10'6" x 5'4".  Its tube diameter is 15.5" and has a weight capacity of 1,200 lbs.

An introductory show special package of $3,995 will be available at the Miami Convention Center in booth #R69 or more information can be found at
