The Deep Blue Electric Outboard by Torqeedo GmbH of Germany won this year’s overall DAME award at METS in Amsterdam in November.

The engine is “an exceptional example of groundbreaking research and development, one which will bring great benefits to both the users and builders of marine craft,” the jury said in announcing its decision.
The engine is a combination of two established technologies: the large outboard engine and electric motor. The result is an integrated propulsion system that promises to provide a cleaner, quieter and more economical boating experience.
