Minn Kota Riptide

Minn Kota's Riptide range of transom mount electric outboard motors is deigned for saltwater use (can still be used for fresh water use). These motors feature advanced corrosion protection using premium grade alloys along with fullt encapsulated electronics that are impervious to rust unlike the fresh water motors which are not recommended for salt water use.

Riptide transom mount motors are available with thrust levels ranging from 40 - 112lbs with 36", 42" and 52" shaft lengths. Minn Kota's innovative Maximiser Technology is available on all models providing up to five times longer on a single battery charge maximising your time on the water. 5-speed controls are also an option on the Riptide 45 and 55 models.

The Riptide Outboard Motors are great for fishing trips, canoes or as an auxiliary for tenders in saltwater.

A 12V power supply is required for the Riptide motor - Click here to select a suitable 12V battery

Minn Kota Riptide Features


Cool & Quiet Power

Minn Kota - Cool Quiet Power

Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than Minn Kota®. Extra large windings and commutators are used to dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power and longer motor life. A unique bearing system produces low rpms/high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise – so quiet they’ll never hear you coming!

Composite Shaft

Minn Kota - Composite Shaft

The standard of the industry since 1991! Pound for pound, our ultra high-yield composite material has been tested to be three times the strength of steel. Virtually indestructible, it flexes on impact and then returns to its original position. Unlike steel, will not kink, break, rust or corrode – guaranteed for life!

Advanced Corrosion Protection

Minn Kota - Advanced Saltwater Protection

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

Fully Encapsulated Electronics

Minn Kota - Fully Encapsulated Electronics

Riptide® control boards (left) are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane (right) to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight heat shrink tubing to form an impregnable barrier against the destructive effects of saltwater.

Sacrificial Anode
