Minn Kota
Power You Can Rely On

When you're on the water, the last thing you want to worry about is your trolling motor. You need to trust it to handle any condition and deliver you to that next trophy fish. Our new Riptide SP does just that. Saltwater-engineered design and proven Minn Kota technology puts more power and greater control at your fingertips, and makes worrying about you motor a distant memory.

Riptide SP

Get optimized saltwater performance with Riptide SP's re-engineered electric steer control, new deploy-assist lever, and a host of features that set the standards for power and control. With 70 or 55 lb of thrust and 48" or 54" shaft lengths, there's an SP that's built for you.

New! Deploy-Assist Lever

Riptide SP's new deploy-assist lever puts you in motion and in pursuit of fish quickly and easily. Simply depress the lever to deploy the motor and you're ready to go. When it's time to move, it stows easily and securely- ready for action again as soon as you are.

Ready.Set.Fish

Optional AutoPilot gives you unparalleled navigational control. Point the motor in the direction you want to travel, activate the AutoPilot button and you're set. The patented compass in AutoPilot keeps your boat traveling on course, even through heavy wind or chop.

Go Remote With Standard CoPilot

Give yourself the freedom to operate from anywhere on the boat with the CoPilot remote control, now standard on Riptide SP. It's total control in the palm of your hand.

Shaft Length Selection Guide

Measure down from the mounting surface of the bow to the water level*. Use this measurement and the table below to find the appropriate shaft length.

Bow to Waterline Recommended Shaft Length
0" to 10" 36"
16" to 22" 42" to 45"
22" to 28" 48 to 52"
28" to 34" 54" to 62"


*Add 5" to waterline measurement for fishing in rough water. Optimal operating mode is with engine trimmed all the way down.

On time and best price! by Michael - Sanford, FloridaAugust 08, 2013
I shopped around and found the best price for this trolling motor on iboats.com. It was delivered on time and I finally had a chance to install it and use it. Worked perfectly! It got me to the fishing flats that I've always wanted to try. Now if I could only catch the fish!

great trolling motor by Rob - Ooltewah, TennesseeJune 25, 2013
I bought a flats boat and replaced the trolling motor. I replaced the old trolling motor (motor guide) that was shot. I did alot of research and found that the rip tide was long lasting and got good reviews. I was a bit leery of the remote and no foot peddle but once I got it installed and started using the remote on a regular basis it was great. I use it from any place on the boat when I am fishing alone and I don't think I will buy the foot peddle now. The Motor itself has really great power and moves my Action Craft 1720 though the water nicely.

Minnkota RT SP70 - GREAT! by Robert - Mechanicsburg, PennsylvaniaMarch 07, 2013
Love the RT SP70 I got through iBoats. Great transaction...fast, good deal, shipped as promised. The unit itself is very high quality, and was fairly easy to install using the optional quick release bracket. Hardest part was re-wiring the cord for the plug adapter my boat uses...but this has more to due with the plug than the motor. Overall I am extremely happy. I have a 21 foot center console that is about 2600 lbs loaded, and this motor whips it around in a river current with no problems at all. I paired it with to Optima AMG 34 batteries and it lasts all day. Great, great, great!

Review for Riptide SP Saltwater Trolling Motor RT70/SP/CP/AP, 54" Shaft - Minn Kota by a CustomerMarch 30, 2009
Over the years I've owned 7 or 8 different trolling motors - a variety of brands. This model is by far the easiest to use and most efficient for my type of fishing. The only thing that keeps me from rating this a "5" is that the co-pilot remotes don't seem to last long. I can easily go through one a season. They just stop working - so I always keep a spare on hand. Expensive at $40+/-.

Minn Kota I-Pilot by Jeff - Orlando, FloridaNovember 01, 2011
ordered from iboats, recieved 5 days later. Used about 5 trips already, i-Pilot has not disappointed. Its like having a first mate on the boat that does whatever I need exactly when I need it. Cant believe how well the anchor function and co-pilot functions work. Great motor so far.

Minn Kota Riptide SP Trolling Motor 80 lb Thrust by Robert - Monticello, FloridaJune 21, 2012
I am extremely satisfied with my experience with iBoats. They have been very helpful and responsive. Minn Kota needs to improve their practices. 1. The trolling motor which weighs about 80+ lbs was shipped in a cardboard box which was busted in about 3 places when UPS delivered it. 2. The corosion coupon was broken and there were a few scratches. 3. When you order an iPilot model, Minn Kota nor iBoats inform you that there is disassembly/reassembly required. Basically Minn Kota ships you a Co-Pilot with iPilot electronics which you then have to change out. 4. The mounting instruction and manual in general is pretty elementary with not a lot of detail. They could have made a paper template of the mount with the location of the shaft identified to simplify mounting and judging where to locate the mount while keeping the 1 1/2" clearance for the shaft from the boat. 5. The wiring harness (i.e. main power connection) is grossly undersized. It is only about 6 ft. long and should have been at least 10 ft. with connectors that are not sized for a 12/24 volt common terminal. I haven't even had a chance to test the motor as I've been working for the past 3 weeks to get it properly mounted and wired.

No Stow by G - Saint Petersburg, FloridaMay 27, 2013
This model is extremely difficult for me to stow I though I ordered the new model which has a different catch design. The motor and i-pilot controls work flawlessly only problem is I need help to stow.
