If you want the most advanced motor on the market, look no further than the Minn Kota Ulterra 80. Since your time on the water is sacred, you want to spend it hooking onto serious fish, not wrestling with your trolling motor. Maybe you’re also getting a little older (and wiser) and you’ve finally earned the right to stop pulling your motor in and out of the water all day long. Perhaps you simply want the most advanced product on the market. Whatever the case may be, the revolutionary Minn Kota Ulterra is the only trolling motor on the market with power lift, stow and trim all at the touch of a button.
In addition to Automatic Stow/Deploy and Power Trim, the Ulterra 80 comes standard with i-Pilot and available with i-Pilot Link GPS functionality. Want to stow or deploy your motor? Push a button on the remote. Want to raise or lower the depth of your motor? Push a button.
If you aren't already impressed enough with the Ulterra, it is also available with Integrated MEGA Side Imaging and/or MEGA Down Imaging. Just hook up your Ulterra to a compatible Humminbird fishfinder for the latest, high resolution, real-time imaging technology.
Make no mistake, a lot of us like things the old fashioned way, and when Minn Kota first released the Ulterra we had some doubts about reliability. But, after a significant redesign by Minn Kota in 2017, we are confident to give it our full endorsement. The Ulterra is rugged and reliable with only a few moving parts where absolutely necessary. Minn Kota cut no corners, even using a kevlar belt and brass gearing in the power lift assembly.
IMPORTANT - 03/07/23: Minn Kota has notified us that Ulterra models with standard i-Pilot will once again be packaged with Heading Sensors. Minn Kota is also shipping Heading Sensors to customers who received motors with redemption coupons and completed the registration process. Motors with the Micro Remote are still available in limited quantities.
Popular standard features include:
- i-Pilot wireless remote
- Ulterra Foot Pedal
- Digital Maximizer
- Heading Sensor
- Bluetooth Smartphone App
- Weedless Wedge Prop
- Composite Shaft
Ulterra 80 Full Details
Medium to large freshwater v-hull, bass, pontoon and general fishing boats up to 23'. The 80 lbs. thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 4,000lbs. 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 Ulterra series is the flagship motor from Minn Kota and a step up from the Terrova line of motors. While both models are available with i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link technology, only the Ulterra line offers Minn Kota's proprietary Auto Stow/Deploy and Power Trim technology. The Ulterra is available in 80 lbs. or 112 lbs. of thrust.
If Auto Stow/Deploy is not a "must-have" for you, we recommend the Minn Kota Terrova trolling motor for fishermen who are looking for a top-shelf motor that includes i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link without the Auto Stow/Deploy and Power Trim. The Terrova is available in 55 lbs., 80 lbs. and 112 lbs. of thrust.
The Ulterra 80 is available in 45" or 60" shaft lengths. For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft length guide.

i-Pilot Link: Advanced GPS powered boat control. (More on i-Pilot Link)
Integrated MEGA Side or Down Imaging: Humminbird's latest imaging technology transducers built right into the trolling motor prop housing. Connect to a compatible Humminbird fishfinder for real-time, high resolution imaging. Choose between MEGA Down Imaging or MEGA Side/Down Imaging configurations.
This motor is bolted directly to the bow of the boat using the included mounting hardware and requires drilling into the boat for installation. Ideally, it's best to have access to the underside of the mounting platform in order to secure and fasten the bolting hardware. However, if accessing the underside is impossible you can use no access bolts to secure the motor from the top. For more information, see our compatibility and mounting guides, or download motor installation instructions and heading sensor instructions.

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 speeds that draw 5 amps or less
- 3.6 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 1.8 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method:
Auto Stow/Deploy and Power Trim. Use your handheld remote or foot pedal to automatically deploy, trim and stow your motor - all at the touch of a button!
Motor Steering Method:
The motor is steered via the included i-Pilot Ulterra handheld remote and Ulterra foot pedal, both of which can control motor speed and direction.
Power Trim. Use your remotes to trim your motor up and down to your liking. Ulterra software even remembers your most recent trim depth.
All Ulterra motors have a variable speed motor. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.
The motor's composite shaft caries a lifetime guarantee. If it's ever broken - regardless of the circumstances - Minn Kota will replace it at no charge. The rest of the motor caries a two year warranty backed up by hundreds of local Minn Kota service centers across the country. View Details Here
