Product description


Riptide Transom Saltwater Trolling Motor

Revamped with an intuitive, user-friendly design, the Riptide Transom ensures robust power and precise maneuverability. Featuring a push-to-test battery meter and unparalleled corrosion protection, the Riptide Transom leaves no haven for fish.

Steering Control:

  • Telescoping Handle: A six-inch telescoping handle offers comfortable, effortless steering.

Speed Control:

  • 5 Fwd/3 Rev: Equipped with five forward speed settings and three reverse speed settings, allowing you to easily select the desired speed for straightforward, intuitive control that places you in charge.

Push-to-Test Battery Meter:

  • This handy battery meter indicates remaining battery life with the push of a button.


  • Power Prop: Employs additional power to navigate through dense vegetation and reach prime fishing spots.

Saltwater Advantage:

  • Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide utilizes premium-grade alloys fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, robust armor plating, and a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint. With multiple layers of defense, it ensures protection against the elements.

  • Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully encases Riptide's control boards to shield the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to prevent saltwater infiltration.

Advantage Minn Kota:

  • Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our composite shaft surpasses steel in strength. It flexes upon impact and remains resistant to breaking, kinking, or corrosion, backed by a lifetime guarantee.

  • Cool, Quiet, Power: Nothing operates cooler or quieter than a Minn Kota. Our oversized windings and commutators disperse heat, resulting in cooler performance, prolonged battery life, and extended motor longevity. Additionally, our unique bearing system minimizes friction, reducing noise that may startle fish.

2-Year Warranty:

  • This motor is supported by Minn Kota's two-year warranty.
