Team Malizia and Greta Thunberg complete their zero-emission Atlantic crossing

Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in New York City today after a two-week sail across the Atlantic aboard the high-tech racing yacht Malizia II. Upon arrival, the sailboat was met by Torqeedo-powered electric boats to assist and escort the 60-ft sailboat to its final berth in Manhattan.

 

 

“We’re supporting Team Malizia as the voyage sends an important message that, wherever you go, there is always a low-carbon option.” said Dr. Christoph Ballin, CEO and co-founder of Torqeedo.

Torqeedo-powered electric boats assisted with undocking and traveling safely out of the harbour when Malizia II shoved off from Plymouth, U.K., on Aug. 14. Upon arrival in New York, Torqeedo again provided electric boats, including two tenders powered by Deep Blue 50 kW outboards and an inflatable harbour support vessel, to assist with manoeuvring through New York Harbour’s busy shipping channels and docking in lower Manhattan’s North Cove Marina.

The Malizia II was also accompanied through the harbour by a small fleet of boats with sails representing the United Nations sustainability goals, and well-wishers on land and water, welcoming Greta to the United States.

Torqeedo is the market leader for electric mobility on the water. Founded in 2005 in Starnberg, the company develops and manufactures electric and hybrid drives from 0.5 to 100 kW for commercial applications and recreational use.

Travel 1103 CS: New electric outboard engine by Torqeedo

Motocraft presents Torqeedo’s electric outboard engine Travel 1103 CS, the newest addition to the globally successful Travel series.

 

Featuring a brand-new, direct-drive motor design, it comes with the high-capacity 915 Wh battery – a range-extending 73% increase in capacity compared to the base model. The 1103 C also delivers 10% more power from 1,000 to 1,100 W, a stronger aluminum pylon for increased protection from impact damage and an upgraded transom mount.

The Travel 1103 CS has an integrated lithium battery, which has solar charging capabilities even during trips, and is the perfect alternative for small petrol outboard engines. Furthermore, the Travel 1103 CS is silent, lightweight and environmentally friendly as it does not emit oil or petrol.

It has an on-board computer with GPS-based calculation of remaining range, where an audible alarm goes off when the charge is low, and it can be easily dismantled for transport and can be stored easily without taking up a lot of space.

Torqeedo's Travel 1103 CS will be available in Greece in May 2019.
