Torqeedo Travel 1003 on 13ft row boat
Following the Sydney Wooden Boat Festival we ran some tests with the Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric outboard on 13ft rowboats available from our dealer Horseshoe Cove Marine on Pittwater. These classic shaped rowboats should appeal to the individual with an eye for style and who enjoys a healthy lifestyle. This multi-functional craft can be supplied at any stage of construction for DIY owners wanting to do their own fit-out or as a completed boat. The Torqeedo Travel 1003 is the ideal outboard for this kind of boat. It’s 3HP equivalent quiet propulsion easily brings the boat to 5 knots top speed, however at a more leisurely 3 knots a couple of hours running time will allow you to get home once you’re exhausted from rowing or assists you to dash back home if you’re caught out by bad weather.
