Lake George, NY
Beckley’s Marina has recently signed on as a dealer for Torqeedo, the global market leader in the growing segment of electric marine propulsion. Torqeedo currently offers 32 electric boat drives ranging from 1 to 80 HP, though initially Beckley’s will be focused on the smaller motors designed for canoes, kayaks, SUPs and small sailboats. In addition, Torqeedo offers a large number of functional accessories such as solar charging technology, high performance lithium batteries, and a smartphone app.
The trend towards electromobility is driven by several factors. Most importantly, the trend means cleaner, quieter, more environmentally friendly motors. The electric drive systems cause no water pollution – they do not discharge exhaust into the water, there is no contamination as a result of refueling, and there is no oil necessary for their operation. A Torqeedo Travel can cover 10 nautical miles with a battery consumption equivalent to just 40 grams of fuel!
We’re incredibly excited about the opportunity to introduce Torqeedo products to Lake George and the rest of the region.
