Transom Mount Trolling Motors 

 

  • Transom mount motors are affordable and very easy to install compared to bow mounts
  • Ideal for smaller boats, those on a budget or for when the deck needs to be kept clutter-free
  • Pairing with a quick connect cord allows for fast motor removal and un-wiring

 

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.

"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.
