Island Hopper Outboards is a leading manufacturer of kayak motors and motor mounts including side-mounts and side-mount/trolling motor combos as well as transom-mount motors, and pedal system replacement motors.
Products labeled for "most kayaks" were designed to most standard kayaks equipped with rod holders integrated into the hullfit. However, we also carry brand-specific products customized for Ascend, Bonafide, BOTE, FeelFree, Hobie, Jackson, Kaku, Native, Pelican, Perception, and Vibe kayaks. Additionally, starting in 2020 we are please to offer a transom-mount motor for Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs).
All Island Hopper motorsarecustomized with sealed and shortened shafts designed specifically for use on kayaks. All Island Hopper electric trolling motors are designed to run on 12V 35ah or higher AGM batteries. Island Hopper electronics and remote speed control units are rated IP54. Trolling motors are rated IP64. These designations mean they are splash proof, not submersible. However, they also manufacture a 4-cycle 2.5hp gasoline powered Honda outboard and custom motor mount for situations that require extra power.
