Whether it is for fishing in your local water or cruising down a long winding river on a sunny afternoon, kayak motors increase a kayaker’s options to enjoy time on the water. When it comes to performance and convenience, nothing comes close to a Torqeedo Ultralight 403. View YouTube video.

Mounting: By using the mounting ball included in the delivery, the Ultralight can be mounted onto almost any kayak. Other mounting kits are available for Hobie®, Grabner, Prijon kayaks
Steering: can be attached to kayak’s own steering system/rudder.
Watertightness: All motor components are watertight, protected against complete immersion.
Safety: The motor shuts off when the magnetic key is removed from the remote throttle control. The motor only runs when the magnetic key is placed in position on the throttle and stops immediately when removed. For safety reasons, the magnetic key should be attached to your wrist or life vest. If the kayak capsizes, the motor shuts off automatically to avoid possible injury.
Battery charge time: When fully discharged, the charge time with the charger supplied is approximately 12 hours. A solar panel is available as an accessory.
Lithium battery life expectancy: The life of a lithium battery is barely affected by charging cycles. It has no memory effect. Therefore, the battery can be fully recharged after every trip, regardless of the charge status shown on the display. Generally, a loss of capacity of 4% per year can be expected. Aging is accelerated if the battery is exposed to high temperatures for long periods while fully charged. Torqeedo’s recommendation is that the battery can be used in very hot conditions, but should be stored in a cool place away from the sun when not in use. 8 years after date of production, the battery needs to be inspected by a service center.
Integrated battery specifications: The integrated battery has a capacity of 320 Wh, i.e. 11 Ah at 29.6 V.
