More Details

The Minn Kota Riptide are the recommended electric trolling outboard motors for saltwater use from the Minn Kota range. These outboards are suitable for saltwater thanks to the advanced corrosion protection.

The RipTide motors are available with a variable speed motor which uses the Digital Maximizer™ for increased run times OR with the standard 5 forward speed + reverse option which doesn't use the Digital Maximizer™.

For the majority of canoes, the smaller sizes of the Riptide outboards are more than sufficient. Minn Kota design the motors leisure boats in the US, canoes require much less thrust than the average bass boat.

Main Riptide features include:

Lever Lock Bracket: This solid 10-position bracket features a quick-release lever lock and reinforced composite material that resists flexing, warping, and UV damage.

Telescoping Tiller: Get easy, comfortable, intuitive operation of your trolling motor with the six-inch telescoping tiller.

Digital Maximizer™: Trolling motors equipped with Digital Maximizer™ provide up to 5 times longer run times on a single battery charge. These variable speed trolling motors let you dial in your exact speed, and they deliver only as much power as you need, helping to conserve your battery for a full day of fishing.

Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide® motor lower unit housings are grit-blasted, then coated in aluminium to prevent oxidization and rust. Then, a final layer of powder coat paint provides the ultimate protection.

Push-to-Test Battery Meter: Press a button on the trolling motor head to get an instant status of battery life you have left.

Power Prop: For 3-1/4" motor diameters, this prop delivers extra power to push through heavy vegetation. Includes prop pin, nut and washer.

Indestructible Composite Shaft — Guaranteed for Life: At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft. It's a Minn Kota exclusive, which they guarantee for life.

Cool, Quiet Power: Every Minn Kota lower unit runs cool to extend trolling motor life, and stays quiet.
