ELECTRIC BOAT MOTORS BY MINN KOTA

minn-kota-trolling-motorsMinn Kota offers a wide range of electric boat motors for freshwater or saltwater conditions. Electric boat motors by Minn Kota are available in different strengths (measured in pounds thrust), different shaft lengths for different sized boats, as well as bow mount, transom mount and engine mount.

The best electric boat motors for Australia’s conditions are the saltwater “Riptide” range by Minn Kota. They have fully encapsulated electronics, sacrificial anodes and indestructible composite shafts which are impervious to the corrosive effects of saltwater. There are 4 variants of the Riptide saltwater series which are described below. All “Riptide” saltwater engines come with a 2 year warranty. Should you have any questions or require information on the freshwater models please phone either the Sydney (02) 9546-1324, Wollongong (02) 4284-0444 or Batemans Bay (02) 4472-2612 store and we will be happy to help.

 

 


 RIPTIDE SALTWATER TRANSOM MOUNT SERIES

RT40-SThe superior durability and long lasting performance of the all new and improved Riptide is also available for the back of the boat. All our transom mount models are 12 volt and range from 40 to 55 lbs thrust. They feature our enhanced corrosion protection, ‘sacrificial anode’ system and all the rugged reliability you expect from Minn Kota. All in an exciting new look. Why settle for anything less? Get a Riptide and get the very best.

SACRIFICAL ANODE  
All Riptide trolling motors (transom mount and bow mount) feature a sacrificial zinc anode to fight galvanic corrosion. The replaceable anode is conveniently mounted on the prop hub and provides for better protection and longer motor life. 

STAINLESS STEEL HARDWARE
Provides an extra measure of durability and corrosion resistance while maintaining a clean, sharp appearance.

COOL, QUIET POWER
Minn Kota motors feature larger brushes and commutators to provide for cooler, more quite operation. Minn Kota’s unique bearing system produces a motor with low rpm/high torque to cut down on fish spooking noise…so quiet they’ll never hear you coming.

MAXIMIZER (RT55 Models only) 
Conventional speed coil technology delivers a constant, steady flow of power to the motor, regardless of speed setting. The result is wasted power and excessive heat. Minn Kota variable speed motors utilise a system that delivers the precise amount of power needed at any speed setting. The result is five times longer run time on a single charge for more hours on the water. 

URETHANE ENCAPSULATED ELECTRONICS
All Riptide control boards (transom mount and bow mount) are fully encapsulated in marine grade urethane to form an impregnable barrier against the destructive effects of saltwater.

INDESTRUCTIBLE COMPOSITE SHAFTS
Better than steel, particularly in saltwater. Will not bend, kink, rust or corrode.
Guaranteed for life. Standard on all Riptide transom mount and bow mount models.

TILT TWIST TILLER CONTROL 
Puts natural outboard convenience in the palm of your hand. The RT55 series has full variable control and the RT40 and RT50 have 5 forward settings and 3 reverse

The Record a Track feature allows an entire track, up to a remarkable two miles in length, to be stored to memory for immediate retracing or a later return trip. As many as three different tracks can be recorded and stored at a time.

The I-PILOT system offers another groundbreaking innovation to anglers for the first time, Cruise Control. With Cruise Control, I-PILOT maintains real-time on the water boat speed in one-tenth mile per hour increments. This precise speed control allows the angler to dial in bait presentations in trolling applications.

Also included in the I-PILOT control system is the new GPS – based Advanced AutoPilot which utilises a series of waypoints to maintain a true heading while adjusting for wind, waves, current and side drift. Integrated into the I-PILOT remote control is Minn Kota’s famous CoPilot Wireless trolling motor control system. With the standard remote, I-PILOT users will be able to control speed and steering from anywhere in the boat.

 I-PILOT VERSION 2 WIRELESS GPS TROLLING SYSTEM TO SUIT OLDER MODEL TERROVA AND POWERDRIVE MODELS

Minn Kota I-PilotMinn Kota introduces I-PILOT, a trolling motor control system which utilises GPS technology to automatically navigate and position the boat for anglers. This is a true breakthrough in trolling motor technology, as what better way is there to keep you on the fish than to have the trolling motor to position the boat for you. This is the ultimate in hands free operation! 

I-PILOT integrates GPS technology into Minn Kota Riptide Saltwater Terrova, Riptide Saltwater PowerDrive and PowerDrive V2 bow mount trolling motors. This creates a new level of versatility for the angler and offers several features that have never been available before on a trolling motor. The Record a Track feature allows an entire track, up to a remarkable two miles in length, to be stored to memory for immediate retracing or a later return trip. As many as three different tracks can be recorded and stored at a time. 

The revolutionary Spot-Lock feature works like an electric anchor, Holding the boat in place. If the boat drifts more than five feet from the Spot-Lock location, the I-PILOT will activate the trolling motor to keep the angler on the designated spot. It automatically corrects for wind, waves, current and drift. The “recall” feature for Spot-Lock provides the ability to return to that specific location at a later time. Up to three Spot-Lock locations can be stored at a time. 

The I-PILOT system offers another groundbreaking innovation to anglers for the first time, Cruise Control.

Battery Charger Minn Kota Portable:

 

Minn Kota Portable ChargerThe new MK110PA 240 volt portable marine battery charger is designed to deliver a precise, proper charge to marine batteries without over or under charging as is often the case with standard automotive battery chargers. It utilises a multi-stage charging system; a feature not found on most portable chargers, to charge up to 50% faster than a single stage (bulk) 10amp portable charger, while properly protecting the batteries. Over charging can damage the useful life of the battery. Likewise under charging over time, will reduce the discharge time and shorten the battery life as much as 20%.

The fully automatic charging system utilises bulk, absorption and maintenance cycles. It delivers 10 amps maximum charge in bulk mode until the voltage reaches the absorption level, at which point the charger varies the power output to maintain voltage. Once the power output drops to a preset level the charger goes into maintenance mode maintaining the voltage at a lower level.

An LED display indicates power on, charging ,full charge and check connection. The unit features short circuit and reverse polarity protection, a safety feature which prevents the charger from operating if improperly connected to the battery. It is suitable for use with 12V/6 cell batteries which are flooded wet cell, maintenance free or AGM type only.
