Default motor ideas for boat

i got an electric boat with 3 motors, id like to change the motors and replace them with 3 sensored brushless motors. Am i able to run more than 1 motor on an esc? I was thinking of running 3 motors off the 1 ESC and was wondering if that would be possible?
Any suggestions

More than likely you will need an esc for each motor. I take it that this is for a toy boat?

You will need 3 ESCs for 3 motors. Also, you don't need sensored motors on a boat, The prop slips in the water so there are no cogging issues to worry about.
