Through periodic maintenance programs, emergency 24-hour service support and plenty of DEUTZ genuine parts on our shelves, we're able to successfully keep our customers up and running. We look forward to providing the same level of support for Torqeedo customers. Our colleagues at Torqeedo are world leaders in the electrification of marine drive systems, and we look forward to joining them on this exciting journey."

DEUTZ Power Center Florida (South) will carry the most popular electric outboards and accessories from Torqeedo's Cruise, Travel and Ultralight model lines.
