Designed for fishing kayaks, Torqeedo’s Ultralight 403 A electric outboard produces the equivalent of 1 hp, weighs 16 pounds (including its lithium-ion battery), hits 6.2 mph and has a maximum range of 25 miles, depending on the kayak’s type and weight. The motor comes with a battery, charger, remote throttle, on-board computer and emergency magnetic stop key. Built-in GPS calculates the battery’s remaining range. The 403 A tilts, kicks up when it strikes an object and integrates with a kayak’s foot-operated steering. $1,799. torqeedo.com
