The new Minn Kota® EO is an electric outboard motor designed for use in both freshwater and saltwater. It is available in two models: EO ½ HP which is powered by a single 12V deep-cycle marine battery, and the EO 1 HP which is powered by a two-battery 24V system.
In the past, recreational boaters relied on small gas outboards for pushing canoes, kayaks, dinghies and tenders. These motors have the necessary power, but they’re expensive, noisy and not allowed on gas-restricted lakes.
For dependable, quiet and clean power, the innovative Minn Kota® EO is engineered exclusively for outboard performance. The lower unit and all electronics have been built and tested to run hard at high speeds for extended periods of time without overheating. Minn Kota engineers dialed in the design to make sure you get the most power and run time out of your motor. When starting the day with fully charged batteries, boaters will have up to nine hours of continuous run time at half speed. In fact, The new Minn Kota® EO is backed up with battery-boosting Digital Maximizer which helps you stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge. This Minn Kota exclusive technology controls the draw of power at variable speeds to conserve your battery and extend your time on the water.
To ensure you make it back to the dock, the motor’s Push-to-Test Battery Meter gives you instant “state of charge” at the push of a button.
