Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Riptide Transom-mount Saltwater Trolling Motors. Saltwater just threw in the towel.

Riptide steps up to the rigors of saltwater and never backs down! Where lesser motors fold up the tents and head home under pressure, the Riptide delivers power, silence, and rugged reliability day after day.

You simply cannot find a Motor better suited for year-after-year success in destructive, corrosive saltwater environments. 5/3-speed.

Read on for even more about what Riptide can do for you: Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power:

Larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler-- extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms / high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise-- so quiet they'll never hear you coming.

Indestructible Composite Shaft:

Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.

Powerful prop performance:
The 45-thrust model features Minn Kota's classic Power Prop™ that delivers extra power to push heavy vegetation.

Hand-control:

The Riptide features Minn Kota's Extend Tiller... extends up to 6" to suit any style of fishing! Innovative collar above the mount allows you to adjust steering tension to your desired level. Keep it loose for effortless steering, or tighten it down to keep Riptide in place.

One-hand Stow Mount:

Remarkably simple one-hand stow mechanism gets the Motor in and out of the water in no time. Just pull up and forward to stow, and hit the thumb release to deploy the Traxxis in any of its 10 different position.

Quick-lock Cam Depth Adjuster:

Change depths simply and securely with Riptide's Cam Adjuster. Locks in tight to keep the Motor where you want it.

Recommended Max Boat Length: 17'.

Minn Kota® Riptide ST Bow-mount Saltwater Trolling Motor with Co-PilotTM.

You also get unequaled corrosion protection, plus battery-maximizing, power-conserving Digital Maximization™. It all comes powered by a beefy Weedless Wedge 2™ prop, and backed by Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power. Take your pick of 55- (RT55), 80- (RT80), or 101-thrust power (RT101)... see the chart below for more details on the features and choices available.

Even more: Check out all the ways Co-Pilot can help you nab more fish:
  • Advanced Autopilot- simply point in the direction you want to go, keeps you on a GPS-perfect course while compensating for drift and wind
  • Copilot- control speed, steering, on / off, and high-speed bypass, all right from your remote! Frees you up to fish anywhere on the boat.
Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power:

Larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler-- extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms / high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise-- so quiet they'll never hear you coming.

Digital Maximizer™: Instead of wasting energy with a constant flow of power, Digital Maximizer delivers only what's needed... a precise amount of power at any setting, along with variable speed control. The bottom line is more time on the water for you.

Autopilot:

Constantly repositioning and readjusting your boat wastes valuable fishing time. That's why the patented Autopilot does the navigating for you! Lock Autopilot onto your desired heading, and it will automatically and continuously make adjustments to keep your boat moving in the right direction. Available on select models (see chart below).

Indestructible Composite Shaft:

Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.

Weedless Wedge™ 2 Prop:

Only Minn Kota's Weedless Wedge 2 Prop can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. They've improved the legendary design with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

Innovative Stow and Deploy:

Easy in, easy out! That's the thinking behind the new mechanism. Balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the power when stowed.
