Minn kotas RT202/em

The Minn kota RT202/em can be used at variable voltage and will deliver a fine force behind your boat. The RT160/em and the 101 should be exceptional power. These are salt water trawlers and the prices are in line or as much as half in line with gas motors. And to top it all off ad a folding prop and your good to go.

Specifications for Minn Kota’s saltwater Engine Mount motors: Model Motor Configuration Maximum Thrust Volts/Max. Amp Draw Recommended
Boat Length MSRP
RT202/EM Dual 202 36/98 22' – 26' $1499.99
RT160/EM Dual 160 24/116 20' – 24' $999.99
RT101/EM Single 101 36/49 18' – 22' $899.99
