Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Riptide SM Saltwater Trolling Motors. Saltwater's "natural enemy"!

Precision maneuverability. Accurate bait presentation. Meticulous speed control. You count on your trolling motor for a lot. And along the way, it has to fight corrosion, run quietly, and perform with flawless reliability.

Riptide SM is the trusted powerhouse that meets those challenges head-on, keeping you in position to make the catch of the day, day after day! The Riptide SM comes in 55- (RT55) or 70-thrust (RT70) power. The RT55 offers your choice of 42" or 52" shaft. RT70 features a 52" shaft. 5/3 speed.

Here's a little more to help make your decision easy: 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.

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.

Hand-control:

The Riptide SM features Minn Kota's Tilt / Extend Tiller... it tilts up 45° and extends up to 6" to suit any style of fishing!

Rock-solid Mount:

Latch & Door mount features non-binding nylon inserts and anti-seize lubricant for a lifetime of trouble-free use. Removes quickly and easily for safe storage.

Quick-lock Cam Depth Adjuster:

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

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).
