Don't fall for their claims of "equivalent HP". It's pure BS based on very dubious assumptions such as equating static bollard pull and torque at very low revs for a gas engine with real world performance.

Discussed at length in this thread:

The efficiency of the motor and propeller system determines the actual propulsive output. Torqeedo has higher efficiency relative to gas outboards. That said, if you have a boat with very much windage and the wind kicks up 1100 watts isn't going to do much.

This.

Thanks everybody for comments. Electrification can wait: we couldn't fix the old 9.9hp outboard but bought a new old one.
