Widely popular in other parts of the world, Torqeedo keeps increasing horsepower on its battery and solar powered engines. Many European lakes are restricted to non-combustible engines, and Torqeedo feels these green engines will find a role in the Pole and Troll zones across Florida. The twin cruise outboards measure 15 horsepower, with enough juice to get this River Hawk skiff on plane.
