Minn Kota Riptide ST Saltwater Trolling Motors
Minn Kota® Riptide® ST Saltwater Trolling Motors are built tough to deliver long-lasting dependability and features the effortless stow and deploy system, enhanced CoPilot™, master cut-off switch and optional digitally controlled AutoPilot™.
Stow & Deploy Mechanism
Simply depress the handle and fallaway ramps effortlessly deploy the motor into the water. The balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a special master cut-off switch automatically turns the power off when stowed.
CoPilot Wireless Remote System
Now standard on all Riptide ST models with added features. Control speed, steering and on/off controls, along with high-speed bypass for instant full power. You can also now activate your AutoPilot from anywhere on the boat - including the platform! (Optional corded foot pedal available - sold separately below.)
Advanced digital microprocessing controls the draw of power at variable speeds to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. This advanced technology allows you to get up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
Digitally Controlled AutoPilot™ Steering
Experience the ultimate boat-control advantage with Minn Kota's digitally controlled AutoPilot system. Designed to deliver infinitely variable steering adjustments for smoother course corrections and tighter heading accuracy. Simply point the motor in the direction you want to travel and activate the AutoPilot, and the sophisticated, patented compass keeps you on course. Available on select models
Advanced Corrosion Protection
Premium-grade marine alloys are virtually impervious to rust. Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a special zinc dichromate armor plating and finished with a TGIC polyester, powder-coat paint.
Indestructible Composite Shaft
Pound for pound, stronger than stainless steel. Flexes on impact. Will not break, kink or corrode. Guaranteed for life!
Fully Encapsulated Electronics
Control boards are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane to permanently seal the circuitry from external elements.
Patented Sacrificial Anode
Protects the motor from galvanic corrosion. Saltwater attacks the zinc anode (discretely located on the prop hub), which can be easily replaced when necessary. The result is better protection and longer motor life.
Optional Foot Pedal
Waterproof, low-profile foot pedal with 18' cord offers precise control. You can activate AutoPilot as well as heel/toe or right/left steering, infinite speed adjustments, and momentary/constant on/off control. Sold separately.
All Riptide ST bow-mount motors feature a two-year warranty.

For your shaft length we recommend measuring for your intended mounting location to the waterline and adding 18 inches. This would be the approximate shaft length you will need.
