The Minn Kota trolling motor advantage

For the fisherman who has everything, the Minn Kota trolling motor is a must have.

You can stand on the bow of your boat with a handheld engine controller that keeps your boat on spot X or as close to as the fish are biting.

The Minn Kota has an indestructible composite shaft. Pound for pound, its composite shaft is stronger than steel, flexing on impact and it won’t break,  kink or corrode.

That’s why it is guaranteed for life.

Power Trim

Once in the water, Power Trim lets the operator easily adjust the motor depth for changing conditions, using the included i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link remote, or the redesigned foot pedal.

Cool, quiet, power

Nothing runs cooler or quieter than a Minn Kota. Extra-large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life.

The unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.

Auto stow and deploy

Auto stow/deploy allows the operator to get the motor in and out of the water automatically using the included i-Pilot  or i-Pilot Link remote, or the redesigned foot pedal.

Integrated GPS technology

All Ulterra models come with the owner’s choice of either new i-Pilot or new i-Pilot Link, featuring reinvented Spot-Lock for the most accurate GPS anchor ever.

Saltwater advantage

Riptide’s premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armour plating and a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint.

With layers of protection, the elements are truly protected.

Marine-grade urethane fully encapsulates Riptide control boards and protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep saltwater out.

Minn Kota uses metals that are properly balanced and a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion.

So the only piece left for saltwater to attack is this little zinc anode, which absorbs corrosion so the rest of the motor doesn’t have to.

Re-invented spot-lock with Jog function

Minn Kota has taken its most trusted GPS feature to the next level. Spot-Lock uses GPS to lock you onto a fishing spot, and now it’s re-engineered it to work smarter and hold the boat stronger and more accurately than ever.

Updated with hardware and software algorithms for better accuracy, Spot-Lock is the most accurate GPS anchor ever. It can be seen with the new “Distance to Spot” reading on the remote, to show how close the boat is.

Plus, the new Jog feature lets the boat move its Spot-Lock in five-foot increments in any direction.
