Minnkota - the industry standard for 50 years

Transom mount, 55lb thrust, 42" shaft.

Packed with a host of saltwater corrosion resistant components.

Riptide Saltwater Transom Mount:
Riptide® transom mount motors are packed with a host of saltwater corrosion resistant components and features that are designed to keep you on the water longer.

One-hand stow:
Riptide® Transom's 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.
When it's time to fish, use the easy-access thumb release to deploy Riptide® into any one of ten different positions.

A New Twist on Hand Control:
Riptide® gives you the best of both worlds with its new Tilt/Extend Tiller handle. It can both tilt (up to 45°) and extend (up to 150mm) to adjust to any situation and any style of fishing. The new ergonomically contoured grip also tilts downward for easy storage.

Versatile New Steering Tension Control:
The innovative new collar above the Riptide® mount allows you to adjust steering tension to your desired level. You can keep it loose for effortless steering or tighten it down to keep Riptide® in place, allowing for true vertical stowing.

Quick-Lock Cam Depth Adjuster:
Change depths simply and securely with Riptide® Transom's Quick-Lock cam adjuster. It makes depth adjustment simple and locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.

Shipping: Smart Marine uses Courier Post and Toll to deliver our NZ orders. All parcels are insured plus you will receive online trace details for peace of mind. Due to insurance and guarantee of delivery, all our parcels will need to be signed for or the courier will leave a card to collect/arrange another delivery time so please consider supplying a business address instead or another where the parcel can be signed for. Orders are processed on week days and are usually collected the next business morning by the courier, if not earlier. North Island delivery is usually 1-3 days, South Island 2-5 and the parcel size can effect this. We also ship to rural addresses and to P.O. boxes but very large/fragile/DG parcels will need a physical address.
