The Cruising Association and Marine-Products-Direct unveil members’ Big Winter Prize Draw to win a TEMO-450 Electric Outboard Motor

The Cruising Association is delighted to unveil its annual Winter Big Prize Draw in partnership with Marine Products Direct to win the fantastic prize of a TEMO-450 Electric Outboard worth £1,679.

Launched on the opening day of Southampton International Boat Show, Friday 15 September 2023, the prize package includes the TEMO-450 Electric Outboard along with a kill cord, transom fitting, bag and buoyancy float.

“The CA is thrilled to launch this exciting prize draw for members to win a TEMO-450 Electric Outboard, which will certainly enhance the winner’s cruising experience,” commented Lucy Gray, CA Chief Operating Officer. “Embracing electric outboards represents a step towards cleaner, greener boating. Thank you Marine Products Direct for partnering with the CA and supporting our members.”

The TEMO-450 looks after both boaters and the environment, offering the perfect solution for slipway to mooring and boat-to-beach journeys with a range of up to 80 minutes.

“Marine Products Direct is delighted to offer a TEMO-450 Electric Outboard Motor for the Cruising Association’s Winter Big Prize Draw,” added David Ellis, Sales & Marketing Manager. “The TEMO-450 is the ideal outboard for cruisers, and weighing under 5kg it’s easy to carry, simple to operate and is the perfect choice for boat-to-beach journeys.”

About the TEMO-450 Electric Outboard

The TEMO-450 delivers 200 watts of propulsive power, comparable to a 2HP outboard engine, perfect for slipway to mooring and boat-to-beach transfers. With a range of 60-80 minutes, it will easily propel tenders and dinghies up to 500 kg in weight and 3m in length. The battery charges from empty in 3 hours from a 220V mains or 12V power source.

Extremely light and portable the unique single-unit design houses the 450-watt motor, battery and control unit in a robust IP67 waterproof rated enclosure. Extremely compact its telescopic handle reduces the engine down to only 130cm in length making it easy to store onboard or in the car. The adjustable telescopic handle extends to 170cm in length allowing the operator to move forward in the dinghy or tender improving bow/stern trim, and also rotates so the driver can comfortably sit on port or starboard.

The innovative design makes launching and returning to shore or boat a simple and pleasurable experience, and there is no need to lean over the back of the boat to lift the outboard as you come to shore, as it simply tilts.
