With a total weight of 7 kg, including the battery, the Torqeedo Ultralight 403 kayak motor defines a new class of electric trolling motors. The kayak motor is uncompromisingly designed for the use on kayaks, canoes and other very light boats. The unit consists of a shaft, a lithium battery and a remote throttle.
Due to its unique mounting system, the Torqeedo Ultralight can be attached to almost any rigid kayak. The kayak motor can be tilted into and out of the water during use and is designed completely waterproof – it can even be operated under water.
The kayak motor includes a GPS receiver providing data for a multifunctional display all integrated in the remote throttle. Information displayed includes battery charge status, remaining range, speed over ground and power consumption.
The motor delivers a maximum speed of up to 10 km/h and a range of up to 40 km.
Connection to kayak rudder provides easy steering (possible for most kayaks), waterproof travel pack for transport and storage and battery charger are included in the delivery.
The battery can be recharged from normal household power or with the optional foldable solar charger, even while underway.
