CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. — Torqeedo, the world leader in electric boating, is pleased to announce that its Cruise 4.0 motor and lithium-ion batteries will power Bennington’s new Electric Series of pontoon boats. The company’s environmentally sound 9.9 hp equivalent Cruise motor provides the power and speed enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts, while Bennington’s S-Series 20-24′ pontoon boats supply complete luxury.
“Our customers have been asking for an electric power offering and Torqeedo motors provide a clean, quiet and powerful solution for our pontoon enthusiasts,” said Todd Meier, Bennington’s VP of sales and engine operations. “The Electric Series will bring unrivaled efficiency, access and ease-of-use to our customers.”
“There are thousands of electric-only or horsepower-restricted waters in the United States, and that number steadily rises each year,” said Steve Trkla, president of Torqeedo, Inc. “Previously, recreational users had to settle for using underpowered trolling motors or reaching these waters, some of the most beautiful and pristine in the country, only by canoe or kayak. Because Torqeedo outboards don’t pollute the air or water, they are welcome on restricted waters.”
With plush seating that can be configured to provide the perfect fishing boat or party platform and an elegantly designed helm with Bluetooth stereo, Bennington’s S-Series gives owners the flexibility to build the pontoon of their dreams. Now, with Torqeedo’s electric motors, they have the freedom to take that dream anywhere.
