Yes, it’s normally on bigger bay boats say 22+ that you want 36v

If you’re buying new get the 80# one.

buy the biggest one you can afford/want. You'll never regret having more

exactly. If you can afford a 36v get it. higher voltage means less battery power needed to make the same thrust, meaning batteries last longer.

Good points above. I just ordered my 200svt and went with the 24vlt for weight and space though. In a couple years I hope to get lithium if I use it enough.

i have a 80 on my majek extreme. If i keep the boat next year im upgrading to a 112. The 80 is nice and works for what i do but, the extra will come in handy on the windier days so i dont have to run it on higher speeds

TM size is determined by weight of the boat/motor plus full carrying capacity weight. A 80 lb MK supposedly will push a 4000 lb boat but my 80 lb struggles to go anywhere in a 15 mph wind on a Majek Illusion 22 which is at or under 3k lbs.

For this reason as stated above buy the biggest you can.
