In there quest to get the Evinrude E-TEC down to 9.9hp, Evinrude is ready to ship the 15hp HO.. This is a high performance 15hp. This 15 will really make your little boston whaler fly or any other boat with a 15hp rateing.

It's not a portable motor for carrying to and from a small boat, but it is designed as a trolling motor for larger boats, especially the walleye and mult-species style, off-shore, and the West Coast salmon boats.

Specs are being finalized. It is close to the same size as the 25 but has a different mounting bracket, faster tilt system, adjustable and offset tiller handle, different EMM calibration, small pitch wide blade prop, etc.

Here is a link to a test that was done.

Because the 15 HO is designed as a trolling motor or "kicker." it comes with a low-pitch (sailboat type) prop for moving a large boat.

For those who want to install it on a rig such as a RIB, jon boat, or other small boat then it will have to be re-propped for the correct rpm.
