The name Deep Blue 100i 2400 is program, the total power of 2,400 rpm is generated by a low-maintenance direct drive of 390 Nm.

Yachts up to 120 feet, commercial ships, ferries, water taxis and displacement boats can confidently fall back on the heavy-duty version of the Torqeedo electric motor. The efficient drive of the slow-moving motor is achieved by the low speeds of 900 rpm and thus optimally equips the robust direct drive motor.
