What is a Kicker Motor?

A kicker motor generally refers to a model that is used to supplement a larger outboard motor.

A small motor like this is often intended for trolling or going slow.

Kicker motors are also commonly used as auxiliary power for sail boats when wind conditions are not favorable or positioning the boat is important.

A kicker motor is most commonly a 6 hp, 8hp, 9.8hp or 9.9 hp model motor with a 20” shaft or 25” shaft.
