Saltwater Trolling Motors      

 

  • Specially treated and built to withstand corrosive saltwater environments
  • Bow mounts are most common and we strongly recommend considering an i-Pilot motor
  • For boat-specific recommendations, see our top-picks for bay boats and flats boats

 

Thrust Selection

Please remember that boat weight is the most important criteria to use when selecting an appropriate motor size. Boat length is provided as a helpful guideline but should not be used as a primary determinant of motor size.  If you're unsure how much your boat weighs, you can look it up in the NADA boat directory.  

Saltwater Trolling Motor Thrust Chart

"Performance Thrust" recommendations are if you'll use the motor in strong currents or waves, or if you simply want extended run time and power.  For more information please see our trolling motor thrust guide.
