Details & Specs

Minn Kota® Riptide SM Saltwater Trolling Motors with Digital MaximizerTM. 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! 

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.

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.

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:

The 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.
