Well, no, I didn’t buy the company (I wish!) but I have made a decision to be a Torqeedo dealer. Those following this blog will know that I enjoy helping other boaters configure their electric boats and so its a natural progression to be able to help by selling them too.
I met with Claude, the Australian distributor when I was back in Queensland last week and we worked up a plan as to how I can help out. I’m in a good position to be able to demonstrate them because I have two of them – a Cruise 4 for the main engine and a Travel 801 on my dinghy.
In a practical sense I’m not sure yet how this will unfold, but my main interest is still to help boaters setup up their boats to be electrically powered, whether thats Torqeedo powered or otherwise, and I’m wanting to continue to do that as best I can. I enjoy helping to find the best solution, and so whatever kind of electric boating you are interested in, still drop me a line (just use the comment facility), or phone me on 0409 466 271 and I’ll help out however I can.
To begin with I’ll add some more pages to this site with practical information about Torqeedos, such as technical specs and prices, and how to contact me for a demo. And we’ll see where it goes from there.
Whatever your interest in Torqeedo, or electric boating, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
