Torqeedo powers Swim the Big Blue challenge
Torqeedo is the market leader in the fast growing electric outboard motor industry. Its range of high-tech outboards combine lithium batteries with leading-edge motor technology and propeller design to offer unrivalled strength and efficiency for superior range, in addition to ultra-light designs.
Supporting Ben on his epic challenge, Torqeedo will be supplying Ben’s invaluable support boat with the Torqeedo Travel 1003 engine – its best-selling motor for tenders, dinghies and sailboats up to 1.5 tons. In addition, Ben will receive innovative solar panel chargers for on-the-move charging, and three additional batteries for the RIB – to ensure he’s safe and monitored at all times.
Commenting on the sponsorship, John Arnold, UK Sales Manager, says, “Ben’s support boat will be in action continuously whilst he is in the water, so it needs to be fully powered at all times and always available for Ben when he stops swimming each day. The ‘Swim the Big Blue’ challenge showcases endurance and reliability – exactly what Torqeedo prides itself on.
“Built to provide unparalleled propulsion performance, Torqeedo identifies this spirit within Ben and is committed to supporting his adventure of a lifetime. We wish him the best of luck!”
