How to determine the appropriate shaft length, thrust level and voltage for your boat


  • Deploy-Assist Lever:  Get in and out of the water easily.  Just depress the lever to deploy your trolling motor and when it's time to move, it stows easily and securely.

  • Advanced GPS Trolling System:  The most-trusted navigation system in fishing.  Powerdrive uses GPS to control your trolling motor with unrivaled features that keep you on the fish.  Set Spot-Locks, control speed and steering, and more.  Minn Kota makes boat positioning and control automatic, and you can take command from the easy to read LCD screen of Powerdrive's wireless remote or micro remote.

  • Push-to-Test Battery Meter:  Press a button to get an instant "stage of charge" reading.

  • Advanced Corrosion Protection:  Riptide® motor lower unit housings are grit-blasted, then coated in aluminum to prevent oxidization and rust.  Then, a final layer of powder coat paint provides the ultimate protection.

  • Digital Maximizer™:  Provides up to 5 times longer run time on a single battery charge.  These variable speed trolling motors let you dial in your exact speed, and they deliver only as much power as you need, helping to conserve your battery for a full day of fishing.

  • Power Prop:  Delivers extra power to push through any fishing scenario and excels in open water.

  • Indestructible Composite Shaft — Guaranteed for Life:  At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft.  It's a Minn Kota exclusive, and we guarantee it for life.

  • Cool, Quiet Power:  Every Minn Kota lower unit runs cool to extend trolling motor life, and stays quiet.

  • What's Included:  One-Boat Network Enabled Riptide PowerDrive 70 lb. 54" Motor, Wireless Remote, Lanyard, MKP-37 Prop and Mounting Hardware.
