  • Part of the One-Boat Network
    Out of the box, Minn Kota motors come standard with everything you need to connect to select Humminbird fish finders, unlocking more advanced navigation features without needing to remember additional adapters or complicated set-up procedures.
  • Auto Stow and Deploy
    Stow or deploy Ulterra just by pushing a button on your wireless remote, foot pedal, the One-Boat Network App or Humminbird fish finder.
  • Power Trim
    Trim Ulterra up or down at the push of a button — on either the foot pedal, the i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link remote or a Humminbird fish finder. Adjust to changing fishing conditions without reaching down to your trolling motor.
  • Advanced GPS Trolling System
    The most-trusted navigation system in fishing. Ulterra uses GPS to control your trolling motor with unrivaled features that keep you on the fish. Set Spot-Locks, record paths, 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 Ulterra's wireless remote.
  • Spot-Lock with Jog
    Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot, without touching your trolling motor. With the built-in heading sensor, you can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction.
  • Drift Mode
    gives you point and shoot navigation for superior boat control in any direction, at any speed without the need of drift socks, kicker motors, or manual operation – even in the heaviest wind and current.
  • Heel-Toe Programmable Electric Foot Pedal
    Stow, deploy and adjust the trim on Ulterra, all from the foot pedal — plus a user-programable button to keep the most used features a tap away, including: mark a waypoint, engage AutoPilot, or deploy or retract Minn Kota shallow water anchors. Includes 18' cord.
  • 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.
  • Indestructible Composite Shaft
    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.
  • Mobile App Compatibility
    Control Ultrex directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with the One-Boat Network app. You get quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock and AutoPilot — plus the ability to update software.
  • Available Transducers
    Our saltwater or Riptide Ulterras do not have a built-in transducer. The freshwater Ulterras all include a built-in transducer. The transducers available are the Built-In Dual Spectrum Chirp Sonar (DSC), MEGA Down Imaging (MDI), or MEGA Side Imaging (MSI). We do not off the freshwater Ulterras without a built-in transducer.
    • Built-In MEGA Down Imaging
      With a transducer built right into the motor, you get crystal clear Humminbird® MEGA Down Imaging and a clean protected look.
    • Built-In Dual Spectrum Chirp Sonar
      Keeps your transducer and wiring completely concealed and protected running everything through the trolling motor's shaft. By covering a wide range of frequencies, Humminbird®'s CHIRP produces more accurate, more detailed returns of fish, structure and the bottom than traditional sonar.


  • Available Thrust and Voltage Options
    Like the Ultrex, the Ulterra is available in 80 and 112 lbs of thrust and performs just as well as the Terrova and PowerDrive motors. The 80 lbs thrust Ulterra is a 24 volt motor. The 112 lbs thrust Ulterra is a 36 volt motor. We do not offer a 12 volt Ulterra.
  • Available Shaft Lengths
    The Ulterra is available in shaft lengths of 45" and 60". The shaft on the Ulterra cannot be lengthened or shortened as it would be cost prohibitive. The are many major components of the motor that would need to be replaced as well as the shaft including the trim motor and the lower unit.
  • Mounting Holes
    All brushed Ulterras have the same mounting hole patterns as our electric steer motors for easy interchangeability between new and older Ulterras and upgrading from another electric steer motor to the Ulterra.
  • Shipping Weight
    The weight of the Ulterra can vary based on the options on the motor. The shipping weights are listed in the charts below.
