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. The Riptide comes in your choice of 45- or 50-thrust power. 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 50-thrust model features the patented Weedless WedgeTM 2 Prop that can take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. The swept-back, flared blades deliver unrelenting reliable performance. The 45-thrust model features Minn Kota's classic Power PropTM that delivers extra power to push heavy vegetation.


The Riptide features Minn Kota's Tilt / Extend Tiller... it tilts up 45° and 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.
