Picking a Center Console Motor:
- Powerful 80 to 100+ lbs motors are recommended to deal with strong ocean currents, waves and weather conditions
- Longer shafts may be necessary (72" shafts now available on Riptide ST and Riptide Ulterra)
- GPS motors are a game changer for anchoring over underwater structures and reefs!
Center Console 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. Learn more in our detailed Thrust Guide.
