Default Motor replacement

Hi total newbie to Airboats and brushless so apologies if questions a bit dumb.I picked up a dirt cheap airboat on Ebay acouple of month back its 23x11'''s has a 9x6 prop Hyperion Z3007-20 running on a 3s no name on the Esc. I got this primarily as a rescue boat and its slow performance is very good. High speed more than enough and more entertaining than I thought. Anyroad yesterday it died the motor will buzz but no beeps or movement and a wee wisp of smoke from the motor checked external connections nothing apparent . so assume? it is kaput.Which motor would be advisable as a replacement without too much expense . Any advice most appreciated
Thanks

Motor and ESCs run on smoke, when it is let out, they are no longer good.
