Riptide Terrova 55 Full Details
Small to medium saltwater v-hull, flats, center console and general fishing boats up to 17.5'. The 55 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats with a fully laden weight up to 2,500lbs. However, conditions, hull design and intended use will have a significant impact on required thrust. 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
Riptide Terrova is a step-up from the Riptide PowerDrive line of motors. Compared to Riptide PowerDrive, Riptide Terrova offers larger thrust options and a motor mount that automatically shuts off the trolling motor when it is stowed. While both Riptide PowerDrive and Riptide Terrova are compatible with AutoPilot/CoPilot/i-Pilot accessories, only the Riptide Terrova line offers the ability to use a foot pedal AND a wireless controller simultaneously. Additionally, Riptide Terrova includes a unique mount that features an easy-to-use lever with Lift-Assist 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 Riptide Terrova and Riptide PowerDrive motors please our Comparison Guide.
We recommend the Riptide PowerDrive 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 doesn't need to simultaneously control the motor with a foot pedal. Riptide PowerDrive is available in 55 and 70 lb thrust levels.
Saltwater and Freshwater
Riptide Terrova 55 motors are available with a 54" and 60" shaft length. For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft guide.
Variable Speed Motor, Optional i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link Control, Lift-Assist, Heading Sensor, Bluetooth Smartphone App, Digital Maximizer, Built-In Battery Gauge, Weedless Wedge Prop, Composite Shaft. (Learn about these features)
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.
13.94" length x 8.52" width
Riptide Terrova 55 can be wired directly to the batteries, and can also be used in conjunction with a plug and receptacle for a cleaner, more professional installation that's easy to remove. To protect your motor from damage, a circuit breaker is also recommended but is not required for installation.

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
- 4.8 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 2.4 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method:
Riptide Terrova redesigned stow and deploy system includes a one hand (or foot) lever with a lift-assist mechanism that carries the weight of the motor. Simply depress the lever and the motor stows easily.
Motor Steering Method:
The motor is steered via the included i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link remote control. If the i-Pilot Link accessory is purchased, Riptide Terrova can also be controlled via Humminbird fish finder. Note: Riptide Terrova is the only motor in the Minn Kota line that can operate both a remote control system and a foot pedal. While the foot pedal is not included with the motor, once can be purchased and used with the remote control system.
An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.
All Riptide Terrova motors are variable speed. 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
