Canoe Motors



Canoe motors might be a mortal sin to the purists out there but for some, a canoe motor is either needed or a treat. Many people out there aren’t physically able to paddle a canoe or might need the motor as a backup in case the water gets rough. Others might just use the motor to go from one fishing spot to the other. It is truly up to the person that is canoeing and everyone has a different idea of what fun is.

That being said, there are various types of motors that would do the job if you were going to throw one on the back of a canoe. You’ve got gas powered and electric motors that could all do the job.

Below you’ll find some of the best canoe motors out there for 2019. These are some of the highest rated and well-reviewed products on the market so we hope that the descriptions combined with the list of features will help you make a decision. Enjoy!
