Additional Information

Recommended for: Small to medium freshwater v-hull, bass, pontoon and general fishing boats up to 17.5'. The 55 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 2,750lbs. For more help picking the right thrust level - or to learn how much your boat weighs - please refer to our thrust guide.
How It's Unique: The Terrova series is a step-up from the Powerdrive V2 line of motors. While both models are compatible with AutoPilot/CoPilot/i-Pilot/i-Pilot Link accessories, only the Terrova line offers the ability to use a foot pedal AND a wireless CoPilot or i-Pilot controller simultaneously. Additionally, Terrova includes a unique mount that features an easy-to-use lever for one-hand stowing of the trolling motor and offers thrust options of 55, 80 and 112 lbs. For a better understanding of foot pedal compatibility, please see our Foot Pedal Compatibility Chart. For a comparison between the Terrova and PowerDrive V2 motors please our Comparison Guide.

We recommend the PowerDrive V2 trolling motor for fishermen who are looking for a value-priced motor that is compatible with AutoPilot/CoPilot/i-Pilot/i-Pilot Link accessories and don't need to simultaneously control the motor with a foot pedal. PowerDrive v2 is available in 45, 50, 55 and 70 lb thrust levels.

Additional Information

Amperage Draw: 50 amps at maximum speed
Motor Run Time: Important Note: As you likely won't be running your trolling motor perpetually, the actual amount of on-the-water time a motor should allow will be substantially longer than times listed. Actual motor run time can vary depending on conditions (winds, waves, etc) and the type of battery used. Listed below are run-time estimates assuming a 100 amp hour rated battery. To learn more, please see our article on calculating motor run time.

  • 20+ Hours: At slow, trolling speeds that draw 5 amps or less
  • 4 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
  • 2 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method: Terrova's Deploy-Assist lever makes it easy to deploy the motor by squeezing a lever, raising the shaft and deploying it into the water. When not in use, the shaft and head can be quickly removed from the water and laid on the deck for storage.
Motor Steering Method: The motor is steered via the included foot pedal which can control motor speed and direction. If the CoPilot or i-Pilot accessories are purchased, Terrova can also be controlled via wireless remote control. Note: If a CoPilot or i-Pilot wireless remote is installed, the foot pedal will function. The Terrova is the only Minn Kota motor that offers the ability to use a foot pedal AND a wireless CoPilot or i-Pilot controller simultaneously.
Shaft Adjustment: An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.
Motor Speed: All Terrova motors have a variable speed motor. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.

I purchased the Minn Kota Terrova 55 for my aluminum fishing boat that I use on Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan and I have been very happy. I use it for spot fishing and was a little worried about getting the 55, but it has been more than powerful enough to work and hold the boat steady and move me right along a contour. I purchased a 27 group battery that is dedicated for the motor and it would take me a full long day of fishing to exhaust it - pretty efficient. The battery monitor that is built in is also a very nice addition. The ordering process was also very easy - I ended up calling in a speaking with a man on the phone who helped me put my package together. It was delivered very quickly and in perfect shape - no worries with any of the ordering or shipping. (Posted on June 9, 2015)

Love my new Terrova 55 so far, the season has just started up here in Michigan. The buying experience from Trollingmotor.net has been an exceptional experience. I ordered my motor and moments after realized I did not order the I-pilot to go with it. I emailed a message to Trollingmotors.net and received a phone call directly addressing my concern and insuring I was not going to need to pay freight twice, a call within the hour ! After getting my motor I had wonderful follow-up from Trollingmotors.net to insure I was happy with my purchase. I since have mounted the motor and used it and am extremely happy with it's performance. I replaced a 13 year old power drive that served me well for all those years, I expect my Terrova to last just as long. A couple of other things, I received a small gift in the mail for being a customer which wasn't expected at all but a welcome surprise. Also at my office I was filing out the rebate form but realized I did not have my receipt to complete the information. I emailed Trollingmotors.net and within the hour had a copy of my receipt emailed to me. Great company, great service and representation, I encourage anyone to do business with Trollingmotors.net. I say Clayton, job well done and I am a believer. Thank you for the great service and communications, a welcome change to todays world of anything but ! (Posted on April 22, 2015)

Review by Kyle

This motor is working great so far and fits my needs. I fish the California Delta for stripers/black bass and at the Mother Lode lakes for bass and trolling for trout/kokanee. I adjust the depth the motor runs depending on weeds but still get through when encounter them.

The ability to switch between remote and foot pedal is awesome on windy days. Catch a good fish or retying lures, just hit the spotlock and no worries drifting away or into shore. Not the best for staying in exactly one spot but still very useful. Using the remote is easy and makes trolling a breeze to steer the boat. The motor pushes the boat easily and after 5 trips of trolling and bass fishing stil had 50% battery but I did wire two 27 size batteries in parallel for extended fishing weekends when kokanee go off.

The motor steering sound is a little strange at first but not bad once you get used to it. Still been able to catch bedding fish in the delta haha. My buddies that have seen it are impressed and love how my boat is easier to fish from in the strong winds we've been having here. At high speed the boat goes bout 2.3mph but rarely need to go over 4 when bass fishing. Very glad I got this motor from trollingmotors.net and referred them to my buddies when they are looking for a new motor.. (Posted on April 8, 2015)
