As surface-drive motors continue to grow in popularity, Beavertail (previously called Otter) has catapulted the concept to the next level by creating a surface-drive backwater motor that lives up to the Beavertail legacy.

With a geometrically reinforced all-aluminum frame and drive housing, frame weight is minimized to deliver an outstanding power-to-weight ratio. Beavertail spent countless hours on the water, pushing and perfecting the frame and drive system to ensure the most optimized surface drive available. The 2009 line consists of three surface-drive motors from 27 to 40 horsepower and a half-dozen long-shaft motors ranging from 6 to 35 hp.
